The Lord's Prayer - Our Father ....


It is the most basic, frequently or daily prayed prayer among Catholics and Christians of other denominations is the Our Father and is said each week during the liturgy . Jesus taught his disciples the prayer, “Our Father” or “the Lord’s Prayer” as in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4. 

Therefore we dare to say,

Our Father, who art in heaven
When we call God “Father,” it is a reminder for us to live as children in relation with God.

Hallowed be thy name
We are asking that God’s name would be “hallowed” or sanctified.

Thy kingdom come
We are praying for the coming of the kingdom of God and Christ’s glorious return at the end of time and the final coming of the reign of God.

Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven
We commit ourselves to following Jesus by taking up our cross and our will be conformed to his divine will.

Give us this day, our daily bread
Our trust in our heavenly Father to provide our earthly nourishment that is necessary to physically sustain us throughout the day and the Bread of Life (the Word of God and the Body of Christ) that spiritually nourishes us.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us
We acknowledge that the Father’s mercy and forgiveness are able to penetrate our hearts to the extent that we are able to forgive our enemies.

Lead us not into temptation
We are asking that God does not allow us to take the path that leads to sin.

But deliver us from evil
We acknowledge the reality of the devil, we place our trust in Christ, His victory over evil on the cross and to protect us from all evil.

Amen.
We end by affirming our belief in all that we have prayed by saying “Amen” or “So be it”.


Matthew 6:9-13

9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your 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 also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’ 


Luke 11:2-4

2 He said to them, “When you pray, say:

“‘Father,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
3 Give us each day our daily bread.
4 Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation.’”



The new Catholic Catechism of the Catholic Church makes it clear that this prayer should end with “Amen” whenever it is said outside of Mass (C.C.C. 2856)
