Matthew 6:9 is the ninth verse of the sixth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and is part of the Sermon on the Mount. This verse is the opening of the Lord’s Prayer , one of the best known parts of the entire New Testament.
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.
The Lord’s Prayer appears in two of the four Gospels: Matthew (6:9-13) and Luke (11:2-4).
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.
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.
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.
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.
“ Our Father which art in heaven ” means we’re praying to our Heavenly Father who lives in heaven . Even though God wants us to call him our Father , he is still God, and He is to be respected and honored. “Thy kingdom come.
The Lord’s Prayer is a pattern that Jesus taught his followers to pray . The significance of this prayer is in what the words point us to and remind us of. Through this pattern, Jesus teaches us a balanced prayer life. The Lord’s Prayer is a reminder of who God is and how we should engage with Him.
Amen is derived from the Hebrew āmēn, which means “certainty,” “truth,” and “verily.” It is found in the Hebrew Bible, and in both the Old and New Testament. In English, the word has two primary pronunciations: [ ah-men ] or [ ey-men ].
Pope Francis has approved changes to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer . Instead of saying “lead us not into temptation”, it will now say “do not let us fall into temptation”. The changes to the prayer were made to remove the implication that God might lead people into temptation.
