Our Father Prayer - The Lord's Prayer

The Lord's Prayer- Matthew 6:9-13

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom and the power

and the glory forever and ever,
Amen.

Found in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4, the Lord's Prayer is the most recited and sung prayer of all times. One of the first prayers taught to Christian children, the Lord's prayer has also been converted to song. When did you first learn the Lord's prayer? How often do you pray it?

The Lord's Prayer

  1. This prayer is wonderful and was said in most of the schools in England each morning before lessons started. It is the Matthew text which is used. It was always the most important part of my school day, to stand in the Assembly Hall with all other students and recite this uplifting prayer after the singing of 2 Hymns.
    Since being born again ten years ago this prayer has had new meaning for me and I see the clear instruction in the words more clearly than I ever did. This is truly how God would like us to pray.
    Thank you Lord for Your divine instruction left for us before we were even born.

  2. Thank you again for your prayers.Yesterday I was informed that Cambridge Conservatory of Music was putting me off until September now because the music students were now involved in sports and stuff so now I am facing buying a car because I need it and I have a bank appointment tomorrow without income now from that job. I am still an organist and have some income. I need a MIRACLE. Oh!

    I am trying to be positive . It helped to read the excerpt on the lady and her list of positives and negatives of her job. I might be in those same shoes. I have only worked for the Conservatory two months. God know my dream. I pray for all this chaos to stop and that I have security once and for all. I have not had that my whole life.
    But I trust God. He makes me a light in the world anyway. My smile draws people to his light in me.

    • Heavenly father, we ask your blessings upon Kae. Give her the faith to follow your word and be strengthened by your love and to rested assured that you will take care of all our needs. In Jesus name, Amen!

  3. Why is the Lord’s prayer not finished with “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever, amen”.

    Thank you.

    • Diane, there are two versions of the Lord’s prayer listed here: Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4.

      The text uses Matthew 6:9-13 which includes “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever, Amen”.

      The image uses Luke 11:2-4 which does not include this ending.

  4. One of my two favorite prayers from the Bible. the other is Psalm 23
    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
