Matthew 6: 7-15

In verse 5 of chapter 6, Jesus cautions his disciples about praying hypocritically like the Pharisees. In the passages of this gospel he is cautioning them about babbling like pagans. He tells them that God knows what they need before they even ask, and he gives them the form for perfect prayer, the Our Father.

Thank you for teaching this disciple how to pray. When my attempts fail and distractions overwhelm me, I use the words you taught and find personal meaning in each of the petitions which lead me to greater reflection and to you.
