Matthew 6:9-139 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
10 Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom and the Power
and the Glory forever. Amen.
I can't even count how many times I have said this prayer.
Back when I was in school religion was still allowed so we did the Pledge of Allegiance(under God), we read a Psalm and then we said the Lord's Prayer.
Going to meetings, the Lord's Prayer was said at the end. It was said to give us tranquility and peace until the next time.
Someone even suggested in a Bible Study that we change the word "Our" to "My" when we say it alone at home.
Jesus told us that this is how we pray to Our Father.
He is all we need.
I think that there have been times when I have taken this prayer for granted. In reading it over, it has become brand new to me once more.
