Once upon a time, when I was deeply troubled and lost between believing in the God of the Bible and believing in the “Universe” and New Age theology, I turned to God and prayed this prayer that I recalled learning during my childhood. Soon after, the Lord made it clear to me as to what to do next with my life and I became a born again Christian soon after.
It goes like this:
Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, On earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
The Latin version has been very important in Church history. If you would like to learn it in Latin it goes like this :
Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua,sicut in caelo, et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra,sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
*The Lord’s Prayer is also known as the Our Father (the first two words of the prayer) and Pater noster (which is Latin for “Our Father”). It was not until the Protestant Reformation that it was called the Lord’s Prayer. (Wikipedia)
