“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today 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 the evil one” (Matthew 6:9-13, NIV).
The Lord’s Prayer is a gift that Jesus gave his disciples, to teach them how to pray. Most Christians who attend church regularly have learned this prayer at some point, and for many it becomes a cornerstone in their prayer life. However, it is by far not the only answer to the question, “What does God say about prayer?” The Bible is rich in instructions on how to pray.
