Jesus Teaches us how to pray

Matthew 6:5-15

5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
*13 And lead us not into temptation,
*but deliver us from the evil one.

14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins

This passage gives us how to pray.
When we pray we should only ask God what we want. Because God doesn’t need us to repeat ourselves in order to be heard by Him.
He already heard us.


Thank you for sharing this.
You know what, I always recite this prayer when I don’t know what I am going to pray to God :blush:

I am grateful that I read this right now.
I realized that God is always there for us, always guiding us.
Through prayer we can talk to God.
