Two men prayed

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Luke's Good News

Jesus told this story.

Two men went to church to pray.

One prayed like this:

"I thank you God that I am not greedy or dishonest.

I am not a bad person like that man."


The other man prayed.

"God forgive me. I am not a good man."


Jesus said, "The second man was right with God after he prayed.

For everyone who thinks he is great will be nothing.

The one who says sorry will be made right by God."



Luke 18:9-14 No. 34.
