The Lord's Prayer

The lords Prayer, often times referred to as the “Our Father Prayer”, is perhaps the most popular prayer in all Christianity. It is known in many languages, and is recited around the world.



There are several different versions of the "Our Father Prayer", though the most popular is the Catholic version with the doxology on the end:

The Lord's Prayer

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.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.

Amen.

The Lords Prayer


The Greek Version

The Lords Prayer was originally, of course, written in Greek, and all subsequent versions were translated from the Greek version:

The Original in Greek

Πάτερ ἡμῶν ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς· ἁγιασθήτω τὸ ὄνομά σου· ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου· γενηθήτω τὸ θέλημά σου,· ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς· τὸν ἄρτον ἡμῶν τὸν ἐπιούσιον δὸς ἡμῖν σήμερον· καὶ ἄφες ἡμῖν τὰ ὀφειλήματα ἡμῶν, ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφίεμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν· καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν, ἀλλὰ ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηροῦ.

When to Say The Lords Prayer

Many people say the “Our father prayer” as a daily prayer either in the morning or in the evening. Most christian congregations say the prayer once during the service.

I say this prayer whenever I'm feeling lost or without purpose. The prayer is so simple and short yet has such a nice flow to it. Whenever and wherever you say it, may God be with you when you do.
