In the "Lord's Prayer," Jesus said "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.". Jesus is referring to our "debts" or sins against our heavenly father, and our "debts" or sins against one another. He was showing the relationship of how we deal with each other, and that God would deal with… us in like manner, and upon the basis of how we forgive each other of trespasses (or sins), is how God will chose to forgive us of our trespasses (sins).. The Contemporary English Bible words this scripture at Matthew 6:12 as "Forgive us for doing wrong, as we forgive others.". This is not the only occassion that Jesus used the term debt when refering to sin and how God would deal with us. At Matthew 18:23-35, Jesus used a parable about a slave that owed his master a huge debt that he would never be able to pay. In an act of great mercy, the master cancelled the debt. But that same slave later refused to give mercy to a fellow slave for a much lower debt. When the master found out about it, he became angry and had the first slave thrown into prison. Jesus summed up the parable by saying in verse 35," In like manner my heavenly Father will also deal with YOU if YOU do not forgive each one his brother from YOUR hearts." (MORE)
Answer God wrote it. Answer The Lord's Prayer appears in two slightly different forms in Mathhew's Gospel and Luke's Gospel. Scholars say that the two evangelists copied the prayer from the hypothetical 'Q' document. Answer The Lord's Prayer are the words spoken by Jesus Christ. Matthew was a w…itness to these words and recorded them in his Gospel. Luke wrote Jesus' lesson to His disciples on prayer from the accounts of one of the disciples or Mary. (MORE)
The actual model prayer (Lord's prayer) was given by Jesus at (Matthew 6:9-13) There are two slightly different versions, here is the one used by most English churches (unless they use the Book of Common Prayer of 1662): . Our father, in heaven; Hallowed be thy name, Your kingdom come, Y…our 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. Lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For you are the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit, Now and forever, Amen.. This one is mostly used by the Americans and Canadians, and the Australians (and English churches that use the Book of Common Prayer of 1662) I believe; . Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, In earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.. (MORE)
The Lord's Prayer in Latin: . PATER noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.

The Lords Prayer as it is known as is not actually a prayer. It was said by Christ as a lesson on how to pray. Man has taken it upon himself to use it as an actual prayer. In Matthew 6:9 we read "After this manner therefore pray ye:" Manner means "How something is done". In other words in this fashi…on will you pray. Nowhere does Christ say this is what you must say. That said, the original question is "why do we have it," and the answer to that is: Because Jesus told the disciples they should pray, and they said something along the lines of "Oh, prayer, right, yeah, very good. Um, how do we do that?" and so he provided them with a model prayer. As noted above, he didn't necessarily intend for them to recite it word for word as if it were a magic incantation, though perhaps unsurprisingly it IS an awfully good prayer if you stop and think about what it's saying instead of just rattling it off by rote.

In the Bible Jesus instructs specifically how to pray. His example is known as "the Lord's Prayer".
Because it's not a selfish prayer and it's how JESUS taught disciples to pray.It cover everyone on the face of the earth
THE LORDS PRAYER AND ITS MEANING Source: http://www.westhillcommunitychurch.org/LordsPrayer.html The Lord's Prayer (Matt. 6:9-13). Christ said "This, then, is how you should pray:" "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. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one" Amen What does the Lord's Prayer contain? It contains a short Preface and Seven Petitions. What do you call its Preface? These words: 'Our Father in heaven.' What does the Father remind us of? That God is our Father, so good and so worthy of veneration that there is no earthly father like Him; and that we, therefore, ought to pray to Him with a childlike reverence, love, and confidence. Why do we say 'our Father', and not my Father? Because, God being the Father of all men, we are all His children, and should therefore love one another as brothers, and pray for one another (cf. Mal. 2:10). Why do we add these words: 'Who art in Heaven'? To call to our mind, 1...That God, though he is everywhere, dwells especially in Heaven, where we shall one day see Him face to face (cf. 1 Cor. 13:12) (see also the New Testament use of God and Heaven.) 2...That we are but pilgrims upon earth, and that our true country is in Heaven; 3...That when we pray, we must detach our hearts from all earthly things, and raise them up to Heaven. What do we ask for in the First Petition: 'Hallowed be Thy name'? That the name of God may never be profaned or blasphemed, but that God may be rightly known, loved, and honored by us and by all men. Why is this the First Petition? Because we are to esteem the honor and glory of God more than all things else. What do we ask for in the Second Petition: 'Thy Kingdom come'? 1...That the kingdom of God, the Church, may be more and more extended upon earth; 2...That the kingdom of divine, grace and love may now be established in our hearts, in order that, 3...After this life, we may all be admitted into the kingdom of Heaven. What is the meaning of the Third Petition:' Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven'? We ask that we and all men may do the will of God on earth as faithfully and cheerfully as the Angels and Saints do it in Heaven; and We profess that, in all things, we submit ourselves to the holy will of God. What do we ask for in the Fourth Petition: 'Give us this day our daily bread'? We ask that God would give us all that is daily necessary for our soul and body. Why does Christ bid us ask for our daily bread? To teach us that we should wish only for necessaries, not for riches and abundance. "Having food and wherewith to be covered, with these we are content." (1 Tim. 6:8). What do we ask for in the Fifth Petition: 'Forgive us our trespasses, as We forgive them that trespass against us'? That God would so forgive us all our sins as we forgive others who have offended us. (See Luke 6:37.) May those who do not forgive expect forgiveness themselves? No; on the contrary, they pass judgment upon themselves as often as they say the Lord's Prayer. "And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." (See Mark 11:25) What do we ask for in the sixth Petition: 'Lead us not into temptation'? We ask that God would remove from us all temptations and all the dangers of sin, or, at least, give us grace sufficient to resist them. By whom are we tempted to sin? 1...By our own flesh or concupiscence; 'for the flesh lusts against the spirit' (Gal. 5:17) 2...By the World, i.e., by its vain pomp, bad example, and wicked maxims; and 3...By the Devil, 'who, as a roaring lion, goes about seeking whom he may devour' (1 Pet. 5:8). Why does God permit us to be tempted? (1...To keep us humble; (2...To try our faithfulness or to punish our unfaithfulness; (3...To increase our zeal for virtue, and our merits. 'Lest the greatness of the revelations should exalt me, there was given me a sting of my flesh, an angel of Satan, to buffet me' (2 Cor. 12:7). "For the Lord your God tries you, that it may appear whether you love him with all your heart, and with all your soul, or not." (Deut. 13:3). ' Blessed is the man that endures temptation; for when he hath been proved he shall receive the crown of life, which God hath promised to them that love him' (James 1:12). Is temptation in itself a sin? Temptation in itself is not a sin; but to expose ourselves heedlessly to temptation, or to yield to it, is a Sin. For our consolation and Instruction, Christ Himself allowed the Devil to tempt Him (See Matt. 4:1-11) What must we do in order that we may not yield? We must especially watch and pray, as Christ our Lord says: 'Watch and pray that you will not fall into temptation' (Matt. 26:41). What do we ask for in the Seventh Petition: 'But deliver us from evil' That God would preserve us from all evil of soul and body, especially from sin and eternal damnation. Why do we add the word 'Amen'? To express by it our ardent desire, and also our confidence of being heard. Always say the Lord's Prayer with reverential attention, remembering that we have received it from our Divine Redeemer Himself. (MORE)
The deciples once asked Jesus to teach them to pray and he taught them the lords prayer as we know it.
The lords prayer learn you how to pray, it honor him, tell who he is, giving us what we need and asking for forgiviness
Personally there is no way to tell if the lords prayer is the "most famous", however it is very popular. As well as the Serenity prayer which goes as follows: . God grand me the serenity to accept the things that I can not change . The courage to change the things that I can. . and the wisdom to …know the difference. . God Bless and have a nice day! (MORE)
It is called "the Lord's Prayer" because it was Our Lord Jesus who said it first.

hallowed be thy name, you mean?. Hallowed means holy, or to make holy, so it means, holy be thy name. Basically, it's saying that God's name is to be holy or is holy. Also, it's reiterating, don't say the lord's name in vain.

Paul Williams shot himself in the head, August 17th 1973. Correction: There were three main lead singers of The Temptations: 1st Lead Singer, Eddie Kendrick(s)--died of lung cancer in 1992 2nd Lead Singer, replacing Elbridge "Al" Bryant, David Ruffin--died of cocaine overdose in 1991 3rd Lead Sin…ger, replacing Paul Williams, Dennis Edwards--still alive as of 3/05/2011 Otis Williams, who formed the Temptations, was never considered a lead singer. Paul Williams, an original member, also was not a lead singer. Eddie Kendrick was Paul's best friend and was offered the lead singer role. His condition in joining the group, then known as the Elgins, was to have Paul as a member of the group, as well. There were other lead singers that came in and out of the group, including Richard Street, who had been with the Distants before joining the Monitors. The "Classic 5" known Temptations are Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendrick, Paul Williams and David Ruffin. Dennis Edwards became lead singer only after Eddie Kendrick's departure. (MORE)

The Lord's Prayer was "written" by Jesus of Nazereth. He spoke it during his life on earth, at ABOUT A.D. 30.
either somewhere in the front or the back. ours is in the front but my friends one is in the back.
This is Jesus' way of instructing people how to pray. Prayer doesnot have to be long and drawn out, but short and simple. Since Godis supposed to be omnipotent and omnipresent, He already knows thedetails of one's prayer requests.
Clergy normally accept that they will lead prayers, however, it is still good manners to ask them prior to calling upon them if they could be prepared to lead a prayer. This gives them time to gather their thoughts. It also is helpful if you give the priest an idea of what the prayer is about. I.e "…Father would you mind leading the grace when we serve the meal?", or "Father would you mind blessing the meeting before we start?", or "Father could you please say a prayer for xxx, he is ill/deceased/serving in the military/etc?" It is common courtesy to introduce the priest, especially if he is not know by everyone. Here is how you would address clergy... In spoken conversation, you would call your priest "Father (last name)." In spoken conversation, you would call your bishop "Bishop (last name)" or "Your Excellency." Archbishops follow the same protocol as bishops. Cardinals are addressed as "Cardinal (last name)" or "Your Eminence." The shorter the introduction the better. Something like "Father (last name), would you mind leading us in prayer?" or "Your Excellency, could you please open this meeting with a prayer?" (MORE)
Hallowed is the seventh word of the Lord's Prayer from the KJV of the Bible.
The prayer offered by the Lord was to be a guide only on how to pray. You will notice that the Lord address His father in Heaven and gives praize to Him. He says we are to thank Him for all He has done for us. We then ask Him for whatever blessing we would like Him to give us. We then close in the n…ame of Jesus Christ. Set prayers should not be used as is done in some churches, but prayers offered from the heart. (MORE)
Forgiving others is something you really do for yourself. Before you can ask God to forgive you, shouldn't you also forgive? Because we all fall short of the glory of God.

Jesus' prayer can be read in the Gospel of John, chapter 17. Most confuse the 'Lord's Prayer' found here with what is properly called the 'model' prayer found in Matthew 5 given by Jesus as a way for us to pray to our 'Father.'
It is simply the way we Christians refer to God when we pray, I usually say Dear Heavenly father and so on. The Lords prayer was Jesus teaching us how to pray, we say God is the father, Jesus the son and then there's the holy spirit. So God is our father in Heaven
It all depends on what chapter and verse you are reading and if its in red righting............
It occurs twice - Matthew 6, verses 9 to 13 and Luke 11, verses 2 to 4.

In the King James version the phrase - into temptation - appears 7 times. The first two are from The Lord's Prayer, which does NOT say that "he will not lead us into temptation" but rather, it asks him not to. . 23295 Mat 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For t…hine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. . 25409 Luk 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. The other verses do not refer to "lead into" bit are warnings against giving in to temptation . 24095 Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. . 24792 Mar 14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

'...y no nos dejes caer en la tentaciÃ³n, sino lÃbranos del Maligno.' (Mateo 6:13 La Biblia Latinoamericana Â®) "Dejes," whether in the Lord's Prayer or not, is the second person singular of the present subjunctive of the verb, 'dejar' (to leave [alone]), and means, "you might leave/let/al…low." It is also the second person singular negative imperative of the same verb, and in that form, means, " don't [you] leave" or " don't [you] let," or " don't [you] allow." The use of dejes in the translation above is probably not the best effort of the translators. The Greek text connotes being carried in to temptation rather than being allowed or let to fall into temptation, which is what 'dejes caer' means in this context. (MORE)
"Do not lead us into temptation". Means, please give us strength, to resist doing things that are bad or evil, although our mortal bodies may find it so tempting.

"13 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-g…rown, gives birth to death." James 1:13-15 NIV1984 "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." 1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV God does not tempt people. He is completely without sin. However, when someone is tempted by his or her own evil desire (everyone is affected by original sin passed down from Adam), God will help that person by providing a way out of temptation. (MORE)

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) never repeat the Lord's Prayer during worship services. Mormons believe that the Lord's Prayer was given simply as an outline of what types of things should be said in a prayer, and it is not something to be repeated a…s an actual prayer. Mormons may memorize the prayer just as they would memorize any verse of scripture. They may also sing the Lord's Prayer as a hymn (It is not in the official Church hymnbook but the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has released a few recordings of it). (MORE)
Temptation doesn't lead to greed. Greed is second-nature to theflesh... like lust, envy, jealousy.

The Hebrew word sh'ma means to hear and to understand. TheShema-prayer (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) reminds us that God is One; tolove Him; to remember, speak, learn and teach the Torah; to educateour children in Judaism at at all times; and to keep thecommandments of tefillin and mezuzah. . What are tefil…lin? Tefillin (×ª×¤×××× in Hebrew) are called phylacteries in English. They are two small leather boxes, each containing four passagesfrom the Hebrew Scriptures on parchment; traditionally worn (on theforehead and the left arm) by Jewish men during weekday morningprayer, as commanded by the Torah (Deuteronomy 6). . What is a mezuzah? The mezuzah is a small rectangular container which holds aparchment inscribed with the portion from Scriptures called theShema: "Hear, O Israel..." (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21) whichreminds Jews that we are answerable to God, that we are to love Himand keep His commandments, and to be diligent to teach our childrenHis ways. As we come into the home, we have this reminder before us(usually on the right-hand side as one enters). Etymologically, theword "mezuzot" means the doorposts, but the term has come to beused for the container with the parchment which is affixed to thedoorpost. (MORE)
