In the eleventh chapter of the Gospel of Luke in the Bible it is recorded that Jesus’ disciples came to him and beseeched him one day saying, “Lord teach us to pray.” They had been with Jesus for some time now. They saw him preach but did not say, “Lord teach us to preach.” They saw him teach in parables, but they did not say, “Lord, teach us to tell parables.” They saw Him heal but did not say, “Lord teach us to heal.” They saw him feed 5000 men but did not say, “Lord teach us to feed multitudes.” They new the one thing that was key to it all, so they said, “Lord, teach us to pray.” And in the scripture passage below we see Jesus answer to them. A Bible passage commonly known as, “The Lord’s Prayer.”
(Matthew 6:9-13) 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. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
