The Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13 KJV)

User Rating: / 10

FuneralChaplain's note: The Lord's Prayer is suitable in any situation.  In a funeral service, it gives most everyone an opportunity to participate in the service, since many know the prayer by heart.  It is presented here from the King James Version, as that tends to be the more familiar setting.


The Lord's Prayer can also serve as the conclusion to any prayer, simply by introducing it with words like, "and now we pray together, as Jesus taught us, Our Father..." or, "These prayers we offer in the Name of Jesus, who taught us to pray, together saying: Our Father..."

9Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread.

12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
