PRAYER:  Teach Us to Pray

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us
to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”  He said to them, “When you pray, say:’Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’ “ (Luke 11:1-4)
