The Lord’s Prayer
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 sins
As we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For the Kingdom ,the power and the glory are yours
Now and forever
- Find out about the Lord’s Prayer here and here
- Read the Lord’s prayer and learn it. A good way to learn something is to write it down and / say it aloud several times. You could ask someone to test you and, once you know it, ask them to test you few days later to see if you still know it.
- I have separated the Lord’s Prayer into different coloured sections. I wonder what each different section means? How might you explain it to someone? Write a few sentences for each section to explain what it means.
- Rewrite the prayer in your own words.
- Read Matthew 6:5-15 in a Bible (you can search online if you don’t have a Bible - click the picture of a Bible).
- What do you think Jesus thought about the people who liked to show off with long words when they prayed in public?
- Why do you think Jesus thought this?
- Why do you think that some people showed off when they prayed?
