Daily Bible Verse - 11/30/2007 - Matthew 6:9-10

NIV This, then, is how you should pray:
" 'Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
KJV After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
NASB Pray, then, in this way:
Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Matthew 6:9-10

In this manner does not mean to pray using only these words, but to pray in this way. People often reduce this prayer to empty recitation-exactly what the Lord said not to do (v. 7).

Did you know?
The Jews did not address God directly as Father but used this personal title to describe God's relationship to Israel or to refer to Him as Creator. "Our Father" was a new title used by Jesus, who chose the term "Abba" (carrying the more intimate sense of "daddy") and invited all who belong to Him to do the same (see Gal. 4:6).
