8你们不可 效法 他们 ;因为 你们 没有祈求 以先 ,你们所需用 的,你们的 父 早已知道了 。
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
8 Verse 8. Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of]

Prayer is not designed to inform God, but to give man a sight of

his misery; to humble his heart, to excite his desire, to inflame

his faith, to animate his hope, to raise his soul from earth to

heaven, and to put him in mind that THERE is his Father, his

country, and inheritance.



In the preceding verses we may see three faults, which our Lord

commands us to avoid in prayer:-



1st. HYPOCRISY. Be not as the hypocrites. Mt 6:5.



2ndly. DISSIPATION. Enter into thy closet. Mt 6:6.



3rdly. MUCH SPEAKING, or UNMEANING REPETITION, Be not like the

heathens. Mt 6:7.
