Many volumes have been written about the Lord's Prayer so I won't waste my time trying to say something new. What strikes me about today's gospel is the reply Jesus gives when asked by the disciple about how to pray. Jesus say, "your Father knows what you need before you ask him," so don't babble and go on about what you need. What he is saying is this, ask God for what you need, go about your daily task and let God get on with providing for you. Simple as that; but we like to complicate things. Jesus says, ask and leave it alone. Maybe this is worth a try!
