Our Father Prayer

The Lords Prayer

Our Father 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 tresspass against us,

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

Jesus Gives Us The Our Father Prayer

Catholic Rosary Myteries

The Our Father Prayer, also referred to as The Lords Prayer, is the holiest of prayers because it was given by Jesus himself. Below you shall see why is Our Father the best of all prayers...

In the Bible, the disciples begged, "Lord, teach us to pray." -Luke 11:1
This prayer is the prayer Jesus taught them in answer to their request.

There are two biblical accounts of the Our Father prayer.

One in St. Luke's Gospel and one in Matthew 6:9-13.

When you take a closer look at this Biblical prayer, you can see this prayer is perfectly arranged.

You offer yourself to God and ask Him for the best things for yourself and your family and friends.

Let's look closer at each of the phrases of the Lords Prayer.

It is led by a greeting "Our Father..." then followed by seven requests:

  • "Our Father who art in heaven"
    You belong to God.
    He created you and watches over you.
    He wants you to live with Him in heaven forever.
  • "hallowed be Thy name,"
    You pray that God will be respected by all
  • "Thy kingdom come,"
    You pray that God will be loved and worshiped throughout the world
  • "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,"
    You pray that God's laws will be followed on earth as willingly as they are followed in heaven
  • "Give us this day our daily bread,"
    You ask for your spiritual and physical needs

  • "and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,"
    You ask God forgive your sins you have committed against His laws and promise Him that you will forgive people who cause you harm
  • "and lead us not into temptation,"
    You ask God to keep you safe from all people and places that may lead you to sin
  • "but deliver us from evil,"
    You ask God to protect you from both physical and spiritual harm
The Lords prayer asks God to grant you peace and when praying the Lords Prayer, you ask for all your spiritual and physical needs.

It truly is the perfect prayer and now you see why the Our Father is the best of all prayers.
