The prayer begins in the fifth verse of this chapter. Luke 11:1-4 says, “If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone instead? Or if he asks for fish, will he give him a serpent instead of fish? If you then who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him! Therefore, whatever you wish that men would do to you, do also so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.” Matthew 6:9-13 (the same passage) says: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.”

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”

“Give us this day our daily bread.”
