The Gospel According to ST. MATTHEW 6

6:5

  

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6:6

  

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

6:7

  

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

6:8

  

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

6:9

  

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

6:10

  

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

6:11

  

Give us this day our daily bread.

6:12

  

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

6:13

  

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
