路 加 福 音 11:1-11Chinese New Testament: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-ZH) 耶稣关于祈祷的教导 11 一次,耶稣在一个地方祷告。当他祷告结束后,他的一个门徒对他说∶“主啊,教给我们如何祈祷吧,约翰就教过他的门徒们如何祈祷。” 2 耶稣对他们说∶“你们应该这样祈祷: ‘父,愿您的名字永保神圣, 愿您的王国降临, 3 请赐给我们每天需要的食物, 4 请宽恕我们的罪过, 因为,我们也宽恕所有亏待我们的人, 请不要让我们受到诱惑。’” 请求上帝 5 接着耶稣对他们说∶“假设你们中间有某人,他的一个朋友半夜三更来到他那里,对他说∶“‘朋友,借我三块面包, 6 因为我的一个朋友旅行到我家里来,我却没有什么吃的东西来招待他。’ 7 假设那个朋友从屋里答道∶‘别打扰我了!大门都已上了锁,我的孩子和我也上了床,我不能再爬起来,给你拿东西了。’ 8 我告诉你们,虽说他不会因为他是他的朋友而起身给他拿东西,但是他会因为他的朋友无羞耻的坚持而起来,拿给他所要的东西。 9 所以,我告诉你们:不断地请求,上帝就会赐给你们;不断地寻找,你们就会发现;不停地敲门,门就会为你们打开。 10 是的,不断请求的人就会得到;不断寻找的人就会找到;不停敲门的人,门就会为他打开。 11 你们当中谁有儿子吗?如果你儿子向你要鱼,有哪位父亲反而给他一条蛇呢?
