Matt 6:7-15

The disciples have seen Jesus pray and want to learn. He begins the instruction by cautioning them about “babbling” as a means to draw attention to oneself. The Father knows their needs. Jesus gives them a prayer, perfect in that it begins with an invocation and continues with a series of petitions to God asking for all that anyone really needs.

Thank you for teaching this disciple how to pray. When my attempts fail, and distractions overwhelm me, I use the words you taught and find personal meaning in each of the petitions, which lead me to greater reflection and to you.
