Chad 11:1 - 8 (STRIV)

All quotations are from the Standard-Text Revised International Version (STRIV), unless otherwise noted.

[11] 1 Then the disciples came to Jesus, asking him, "Teacher, how should we pray?"

2 And Jesus responded to them, "When you pray, you ought to say:

3 "'Father, who resides in Heaven,
blessings on your name.
4 Watch us today earn our daily bread,
we who are your followers and therefore sinless.
5 Punish those who transgress against us, and
strengthen our hands to torture those who do not worship you.
6 And lead us not into temptation,
but ignore it if we sin anyway,
7 for we cannot bear witness for you if we are embarrassed.a
8 For thine is the nation, and the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever. Amen.'"

a7 Some mss. do not contain verse 7.
