5 “Whenever you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, because they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward. # Mt 6:16; Mk 11:25; Lk 6:24; 18:11 6But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.#6:6 Other mss add openly#2Kg 4:33; Is 26:20; Mt 6:18 7When you pray, don’t babble like the Gentiles, since they imagine they’ll be heard for their many words.#1Kg 18:26; Ec 5:2 8Don’t be like them, because your Father knows the things you need before you ask him.#Mt 9:12; Mk 2:17; Lk 5:31; 9:11; 10:42; Ac 2:45 9 “Therefore, you should pray like this: # Lk 11:1-13 Our Father in heaven, your name be honored as holy. # Lk 11:2; 1Co 7:14 10 Your kingdom come.
