The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s prayer can be found in the book of Matthew, (Matthew 6:9-13) and also in the book of Luke. (Luke 11:1-4) In these two books of  Matthew and Luke, Our Lord Jesus Christ was instructing His disciples on prayer here in these passages. This prayer was intended to be a model prayer for them. This prayer which our Lord Jesus Christ taught His disciples was known as “The Lord’s Prayer” was given upon two separate occasions; first in the Sermon on the Mount; and second in an unnamed place when one of the disciples requested Jesus our Lord to teach them to pray. There is so much more that we can say about prayer, but remember that as a Christian we have a direct line to God through Jesus our Savior at anytime. Our Lord Jesus gave a definite command to all believers to pray in His name (John 16:23-24) for Jesus sats on right side of God the Father and there He makes intercession on our behalf because He knows our needs before we say them.

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 US. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. 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. (Matthew 6:9-13) 

And Jesus said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in Heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive everyone that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. (John 11:2-3) 

Note: I pray that this Scripture of the Lord’s prayer will always help you in your prayer study and your understanding of Gods’ Word and just how precious God’s Holy word is to all of us Christians. Please feel free to pass them on to other people if they have helped you.

Your, Brother in Christ
