Parables Of Jesus Christ: The Lord's Prayer
The origin of the famous "Lord's Prayer":
"11:1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
"Yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth"
Although many regard "The Lord's Prayer" as a lesson in itself, it was actually just the initiative for a parable of an importune friend ("importune" means to persistently and urgently plead), as the Messiah continued with the teaching of the prayer:
"11:5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; 11:6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?
The essence of the parable of The Lord's Prayer:
"11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 11:10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
