"When thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues, and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and, when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathens do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father, which art in heaven; hallowed be thy name.
