Lord, you taught your disciples
to pray a short and simple prayer
which has come down to us
through the church and the Bible.
In our own prayers
we add many wants and needs.
We also should remember
to give you thanks and praise.
Guide us, Lord,
as we come before you
to ready ourselves for the day.
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.”
