Teaching about Prayer and Fasting
Today's Passage: Matthew 6:5-18
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
5. "When you pray, don't be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.
6. But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
2. "When you pray, don't babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.
8. Don't be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him.
9. Pray like this!
Our Father in heaven,
may you name be kept holy.
10. My your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
11. Give us today the food we need,
12. and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
13. And don't let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.
14 "If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.
15. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
16. "And when you fast, don't make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. I tell you the truth, that is the only reward they will ever get.
17. But when you fast, comb your hair and wash your face.
18. Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. And your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
Matthew 6:5-18 NLT
