Truth and Beauty

The Lord's Prayer


The biblical gospels (Matthew 6:9-13 or Luke 11:2-4) record a prayer that Jesus taught his disciples when they asked him to teach them to pray. The prayer covers vital aspects of life as follows: 

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 forgive our debtors. 



And do not lead us into temptation, 

but deliver us from the evil one.


For Yours is the kingdom and the power

and the glory forever. Amen.
