The Lords Prayer



The Lords prayer (or our Father prayer) is an example on how to pray given by Jesus as part of the "sermon on the mount" found in Mathew, chapters 5 and 6. This popular version of the Lord's prayer is found in -

Matthew 6:9-13 (King James Version)

9. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11. Give us this day our daily bread.

12. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.



There is another version of this prayer (our Father prayer) found in Luke. Jesus was praying and when he finished the disciples asked him to teach them to pray -

Luke 11:2-4 (King James Version)

2. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

3. Give us day by day our daily bread.

4. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.


If Jesus saw the need to spend time in prayer then so should we. As the sayings state-

  • "much prayer much power"

  • "7 days without prayer makes 1 weak"

The answer to life's problems is prayer.


I wanted to share the Lords prayer in song with you, I was trying to decide between Barbara Striesand and Mahalia Jackson, but this is the one my granddaughter choose (at this time she's 1 years old). Hope you enjoy it as much as she does.
