Two versions of this prayer are recorded in the gospels: a longer form within the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew, and a shorter form in the Gospel of Luke when “one of his disciples said to him, ‘ Lord , teach us to pray , as John taught his disciples.'” (Luke 11:1 NRSV).
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.
At present there are at least five English versions of the Lord’s Prayer in use in the UK. Anglicans account for three of these; a Roman Catholic international committee produced another, and a fifth is traditional in Scotland.
Luke’s version of the Lord’s Prayer appears to be simple because it is shorter than Matthew’s version and it is shorter than the version that most people are familiar with. In general, prayer is not simple and Luke’s version of the Lord’s Prayer is not simple either.
Hail Mary , full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary , Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. For translations from the Latin into various languages, see Wikisource.
When Jesus first teaches the prayer he says when you pray say ” Our Father “. All prayer has to acknowledge our need of forgiveness and our need to forgive. So it’s not so much that there would be other ways of saying it, we say those words simply because Jesus told us to.
The most common prayer among Christians is the ” Lord’s Prayer “, which according to the gospel accounts (e.g. Matthew 6:9-13) is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray.
The Lord’s Prayer appears in two of the four Gospels: Matthew (6:9-13) and Luke (11:2-4).

Lead us not into mistranslation. Pope Francis officially approved a change to the most famous prayer in Christianity. It’s the prayer Jesus taught followers to pray and one of the few things that unites 2.2 billion Christians across the globe.
Use the term kingdom come to mean “forever” or “heaven.” You might sigh that you’ll be cleaning up the sand your brother’s dog tracked around your apartment until kingdom come . Saying you’ll do something until kingdom come is an exaggerated way to express your feeling that it will last forever — until the end of time.
As a result, Catholics living in the eastern half of the Roman Empire usually added the doxology while those in the western half believed the “ Our Father ” as said during today’s Mass was sufficient. When scholars decided on the final written version, they chose to omit it. The end of the Lord’s Prayer is one of them.”
Pope Francis reportedly approved changes to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer , also known as the Our Father . Instead of saying, “Lead us not into temptation,” Catholics will say, “Do not let us fall into temptation,” The Guardian and Fox News reported.
In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver. us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and. the power, and the glory, for ever.
Both Matthew and Luke include in the prayer a hope that God will not lead them into temptation – and, unfortunately for the Pope, translation is not the issue here. A quick and very basic look at the grammar of the prayer shows why. In both versions, the prayer starts by invoking God as Father.
