The Lord’s Prayer is a Christian prayer that, according to the New Testament, Jesus taught as the way to pray.
Writings dating back 2000 years can be read of how friends of Jesus asked him how they should pray. He then taught them the following prayer, which is prayed by millions of believers to this day.
The Lord’s prayerOur Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.

The Lord’s prayer in the bible
The Lord’s Prayer is not something man-made. Jesus – whom his followers believe to be the son of God – himself taught it to his disciples and friends. You can read it yourself in the bible, for example in Matthew 6.
Can you make up your own prayer?
Prayer, or praying, is talking to God. So you can pray the Lord’s Prayer, but you can also say something to God yourself. This does not have to be formal, or according to certain rules or with certain words. Feel free to say whatever comes to your mind!
