New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:2 When ye pray, say. This model prayer is somewhat different from that in Matthew 6:9-13, especially in its omission of the final ascription, “For thine is the kingdom….” Evidently they were given on two different occasions, one as a component of the Sermon on the Mount, the other directly in answer to a specific question by one of His disciples (Luke 11:1). Possibly the prayer was shortened on the latter occasion because, by this time, He had adequately reminded the disciples of the model prayer previously given.
