The Lords Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer is the model of prayer that Jesus taught us, as noted in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. You may wish to share in Christ’s prayer to his Father, that his will be done, his kingdom come. Both the traditional and modern language forms are included here:

Traditional Language:

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,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen

Modern Language:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.
now and for ever. Amen

"Know God, Show His Love, Grow His Church."
