The Lord’s prayer


The Lord’s prayer is one of the best known passages in the Bible. People who are unfamiliar with the history of Abraham or the writings of the prophets nevertheless know something of the Lord’s prayer and many can recite it by heart.


The Lord’s prayer occurs twice in Scripture, both times taught by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. In Matthew’s gospel the prayer occurs in chapter 6 and forms the centre piece of the Sermon on the Mount. In Luke’s gospel an un-named disciple asked Jesus: ‘Lord, teach us to pray’, the Lord’s prayer was the response given by Jesus.


In this short series we look at the Lord’s prayer in distinction to the ‘show off’ prayers of the Pharisees and the meaningless prayers of the heathen. ‘Don’t pray like that’, says the Lord. In contrast in the Lord’s prayer Jesus teaches all the principles for our daily communion in prayer with God our Father. It is clear, concise and comprehensive, covering all of life’s problems and eventualities for the past, present and future. It begins and ends with God our Father and is a masterpiece of teaching in a few words.
