What is the Lord’s Prayer?

“The Lord’s Prayer” is a name that people use for a prayer that Jesus taught his disciples:

“Our Father in heaven, we pray that people will respect your holy name.

We want your kingdom to come. The things that you want happen in heaven. We want the things that you want here on earth. Give us the food that we need each day.

Forgive us for the wrong things that we do. Other people do wrong things to us. But we know that we also must forgive those wrong things.

Do not test us with very difficult things. And save us from the devil.”

Forgive people when they do wrong things to you. If you forgive them, your Father in heaven will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive them, your Father will not forgive you.’ (Matthew 6:5-15)

You can also find this prayer in Chapter 11 verses 1 to 4 of Luke's Gospel.
