6. Teaching concerning Prayer
1 And while He was in a certain place praying, when He ceased, a certain one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, even as John also taught his disciples.
3 Give us each day our daily abread.
5 And He said to them, Who among you will have a friend and will go to him at midnight and say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves,
6 Since a friend of mine has come to me from a journey and I have nothing to set before him;
7 And that one, from inside, will answer and say, Do not trouble me; the door is already shut and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise up and give you anything?
8 I say to you, Even though he will not rise up and give him anything because he is his friend, surely because of his shameless persistence he will rise and give him what he needs.
10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened.
11 But what father among you 1whose son shall ask for a fish will instead of a fish hand him a snake?
12 Or if he shall also ask for an egg will hand him a scorpion?
