Luke 11:1-13

CEB 1 Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples." NRS 1 He was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples." CEB 2 Jesus told them, "When you pray, say: ‘Father, uphold the holiness of your name. Bring in your kingdom. NRS 2 He said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. CEB 3 Give us the bread we need for today. NRS 3 Give us each day our daily bread. CEB 4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who has wronged us. And don't lead us into temptation.'" NRS 4 And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone indebted to us. And do not bring us to the time of trial." CEB 5 He also said to them, “Imagine that one of you has a friend and you go to that friend in the middle of the night. Imagine saying, ‘Friend, loan me three loaves of bread NRS 5 And he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say to him, "Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; CEB 6 because a friend of mine on a journey has arrived and I have nothing to set before him.' NRS 6 for a friend of mine has arrived, and I have nothing to set before him.' CEB 7 Imagine further that he answers from within the house, ‘Don't bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can't get up to give you anything.' NRS 7 And he answers from within, "Do not bother me; the door has already been locked, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything.' CEB 8 I assure you, even if he wouldn't get up and help because of his friendship, he will get up and give his friend whatever he needs because of his friend's brashness. NRS 8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, at least because of his persistence he will get up and give him whatever he needs. CEB 9 And I tell you: Ask and you will receive. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened to you. NRS 9 "So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. CEB 10 Everyone who asks, receives. Whoever seeks, finds. To everyone who knocks, the door is opened. NRS 10 For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. CEB 11 "Which father among you would give a snake to your child if the child asked for a fish? NRS 11 Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for a fish, will give a snake instead of a fish? CEB 12 If a child asked for an egg, what father would give the child a scorpion? NRS 12 Or if the child asks for an egg, will give a scorpion? CEB 13 If you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?" NRS 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"
