Daily Devotion

Luke 11:1-4 (NIV)

1One 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."

2He said to them, "When you pray, say: " 'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.

3Give us each day our daily bread.

4Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.

Note: for verse 2, some manuscripts after 'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. have “May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”

 

Matthew 6:9-15 (NIV)

9"This, then, is how you should pray: " 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

10your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

11Give us today our daily bread.

12Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. '

14For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

15But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
