About Today Readings

Galatians 2:1-2, 7-14. Psalm 116(117). Luke 11:1-4.

Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News – Psalm 116(117).

‘Lord, teach us to pray.’

In this important reading in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus teaches the disciples to pray. He gives them the words to what we know across Christian denominations as the Lord’s Prayer or the Our Father. Sometimes, we don’t have the words to pray, and Jesus comforts his disciples in this reading. He assures them that this prayer alone suffices when the words won’t come. And it contains everything really: adoration of God, a plea for grace and forgiveness, a seeking of our daily needs, and a prayer that we will survive another day. It is the perfect prayer.
