"And now about prayer. 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 assure you, 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 secretly. Then your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you."
"When you pray, don't babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered only by repeating their words again and again.
Don't be like them, because your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!
Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be honored.
May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done here on earth, just as it is in heaven.
