Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. (KJV) Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. (KJV) Although I am not dogmatic on the issue, my personal opinion is that these two passages represent two different events. Matthew records Jesus giving the model prayer as a part of His Sermon on the Mount. Luke records Jesus giving the model prayer at the conclusion of His prayer time at His disciples request to "teach us to pray." In Matthew, Jesus commands the crowd, "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking." (6:7) Then, He goes on to instruct the crowd, "After this manner therefore pray ye..." In Luke, Jesus instructs His disciples, "When ye pray, say..." which seems to be in direct violation to His command not to use "vain repetitions." I fully recognize that it is quite possible to sincerely pray a repeated prayer even using the same words (Jesus Himself did this in the Garden of Gethsemane). It all has to do with the attitude of one's heart. I believe there is a big difference between "saying a prayer" and "praying a prayer." So, Luke's account gives me a reason to pause and think about what Jesus might have been saying to His disciples. I realize that I did not ask a specific question, but I was hoping for some discussion on the issue for my own personal insight.
