The Lord's Prayer is the prayer which Christ gave the Church. It is also called the Our Father from the first words of the prayer.

About the prayer

The event in which Christ taught the prayer to his disciples is related in Matt 6:5-14 and Luke 11:1-4. Before this, no one dared to pray to God as their very own Father.

In the early Church, only after baptism and chrismation, was the Lord's Prayer taught to people. Only then, the faithful who have become children of God in Christ and the Holy Spirit dare to pray to God as to their very own Father. The prayer is used in many of the liturgical services, including the Divine Liturgy, in which it is introduced by the Priest, with boldness and without condemnation to dare to call upon the Heavenly God as Father and to say:

Greek

Πάτερ ἡμῶν, ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς•
ἁγιασθήτω τὸ ὄνομά σου,
ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου,,
γενηθήτω τὸ θέλημά σου, ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.
Τὸν ἄρτον ἡμῶν τὸν ἐπιούσιον δὸς ἡμῖν σήμερον.
Καὶ ἄφες ἡμῖν τὰ ὀφειλήματα ἡμῶν,
ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφίεμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν.
Καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν,
ἀλλὰ ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηροῦ. [1]

English

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. [2]
