THE LORD’S PRAYER

The Lord Jesus teaches us how to pray. In Matthew 6, He first of all says that we should not use prayer as a religious ceremony to impress others.
He also teaches us the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6:9-13:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen

Let’s look at each part of this prayer;

Our Father – God is our heavenly Father

Who art in heaven – God dwells in heaven

Hallowed (holy) is Your Name – God is holy and His name is to be worshipped.

Thy Kingdom come – May God’s Kingdom come on this earth.

Thy will be done – May God’s will be done.

On earth as it is in heaven – God’s will is done in heaven; may it be done on earth.

Give us this day our daily bread – We ask God to provide for our needs each day.

And forgive us our debts – Please God forgive our sins.

As we forgive our debtors – And let us forgive others who have sinned against us.

And lead us not into temptation – We ask God to keep us from being tempted.

But deliver us from evil – Please God, take us away from evil.

For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever – God’s is the heavenly Kingdom forever and to Him be all power and honor and glory forever.

Most Christians have memorized this prayer. We know that when we pray this prayer, we pray according to God’s will. But this prayer also teaches us what is important when we pray using our own words:

  • We give glory to God. We praise Him in our prayers.
  • We pray for our daily needs. We trust that God will take care of us.
  • We pray God will help us to lead a life that is honoring Him.
  • We talk to God as to our Father, who loves us and takes care of us.
  • We acknowledge the greatness of God. Normally, we end our prayers with something like we pray this in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Prayer is communication with God.
