The Model Prayer 主耶稣所教导的祷告

你们祷告的时候,不可像那假冒为善的人,爱站在会堂里和十字路口上祷告,故意叫人看见。我实在告诉你们,他们已经得了他们的赏赐。你祷告的时候,要进你的内屋,关上门,祷告你在暗中的父,你父在暗中察看,必然报答你。


你们祷告,不可像外邦人,用许多重复话。他们以为话多了必蒙垂听。你们不可效法他们。因为你们没有祈求以先,你们所需用的,你们的父早已知道了。所以你们祷告,要这样说,


我们在天上的父,愿人都尊你的名为圣。

愿你的国降临,愿你的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。

我们日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。

免我们的债,如同我们免了人的债。

不叫我们遇见试探,救我们脱离凶恶,

因为国度,权柄,荣耀,全是你的,直到永远,阿们。

《马太福音》6:5~13

“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.  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.

“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.  Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!  Pray like this:

Our Father in heaven, 

Hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

As we forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen."


Matthew 6:5-13
