Proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our Father

Leave a comment

The Lord’s Prayer is a favorite prayer among followers of Jesus the Messiah. I remember being taught this prayer by my mother (in Spanish) when I was just a little boy. It is also known as the Our Father, and in Latin as the Pater Noster.

It was given by Jesus as a response to one of his disciples to teach them “to pray as John taught his disciples”. The prayer concludes with “deliver us from evil” in Matthew, and with “lead us not into temptation” in Luke.

The prayer as it occurs in Matthew 6:9–13 is as follows:

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 tresspasses, 
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, 
for ever and ever. Amen.
