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.
Jesus often assures his followers that God will provide for them （12.22-32）. ‘And forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone indebted to us. ‘ Matthew asks for forgiveness of debts rather than sins （ Matthew 6.12） whereas Luke refers to both sins and debts.
The Lord’s Prayer appears in two of the four Gospels: Matthew (6:9-13) and Luke (11:2-4).
“And when you pray , do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray , go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.
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.
—used to express solemn ratification (as of an expression of faith) or hearty approval (as of an assertion)
The Lord’s Prayer appears in two places in the Bible. In the book of Luke, Jesus was praying, apparently by himself, and when he had finished one of the disciples asked him, “Lord, teach us how to pray the way John taught his disciples,” referring to John the Baptist.
So Jesus gave them the Lord’s Prayer . “Our Father which art in heaven” means we’re praying to our Heavenly Father who lives in heaven. God likes it when we call Him Father, and He wants us to talk to Him just like we talk to our own father. God is our loving Father, and we are his special children.
The Hail Mary (Latin: Ave Maria) is a traditional Scripture -based Christian prayer of praise for and petition to the Blessed Virgin Mary . Since the sixteenth century, the Roman Catholic version of the prayer closes with an appeal for her intercession.
In the Gospels of Matthew ( Matthew 6 : 9 – 13 ) and Luke (Luke 11:2-4), Jesus answered the Disciples question on how to pray. It’s known as the Lord’s Prayer and is Christ’s blueprint for praying from the heart. The final part of the prayer heightens God’s power to lead us away from temptation and protect us from evil.
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.
“My God , My God , why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matt 27:46, Mark 15:34) “Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46)
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).
