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 [[disciple]]s is related in [[Gospel of Matthew|Matthew]] 6:5-14 and [[Gospel of Luke|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 [[God the Father|Father]] and to say:''
==Private prayer==
The Lord's Prayer is undeniably the most commonly-used prayer in private and corporate settings.
