Luke places the Lord’s Prayer about half way through his gospel at Luke 11.2-4. At this point Jesus is on his journey to Jerusalem where he knows he will have to suffer before his mission can be accomplished.
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.
Recorded prayers Three prayers on the cross: “Father forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34) “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)
The Lord’s Prayer appears in two of the four Gospels: Matthew (6:9-13) and Luke (11:2-4).
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.
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.
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).
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.
Our Father , which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us.
Part 4: Farewell prayer John 17:1–26 is generally known as the Farewell Prayer or the High Priestly Prayer, given that it is an intercession for the coming Church. It is by far the longest prayer of Jesus in any of the gospels.
The most widely accepted form of the prayer is “ Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God , have mercy on me.” It reflects the biblical idea that the name of God is sacred and that its invocation implies a direct meeting with the divine.
If the heart is attuned to God, one can pray in any posture imaginable. Jesus prayed sitting, standing, kneeling, and in a prone position. The disciples were sitting in the upper room when the Holy Spirit descended upon them in answer to prayer . Ahab prayed with his face between his knees .
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.
“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. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven .” If we think about where God lives, we know it’s pretty great.
