DON'T READ ANY REPLIES IN THIS THREAD UNTIL YOU'VE READ THIS POST.

So I'm curious! There's a bunch of different versions of the Lord's Prayer out there. I'm curious what it is that you learned! So here's what we're gonna do: Reply to this thread with the Lord's Prayer, but don't read anyone else's replies until you do.

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 debts as we forgive our debtors
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever
Amen

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For thine is the power, the glory, and honor, forever and ever,
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen

Our Father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingom 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
For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever.
Amen.



I also love The Millenium Prayer which is The Lord's Prayer set to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne". Slightly different words though, and an extra verse, as below:

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name!
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
On Earth as in Heav'n!
Give us today our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive each one of those who sins against us.
And lead us not to the time of trial
But deliver us from evil
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power and glory!

[repeat]

Let all the people say "Amen"
In every tribe and tongue!
Let every heart's desire be joined
To see the Kingdom come!

Let every hope and every dream
Be born in love again!
Let all the world sing with one voice
Let the people say "Amen"!

[repeat]

I've always thought of the Lord's Prayer as a template for how we should conduct our prayers - in humility and what we should cover in them; I don't believe it should be recited word for word repeatedly, which can lead to laziness - after all, right before this Jesus said not to use vain repetitions. Instead, we should apply our current situation to the prayer:

What is God's will this day?
What is it today that we need?
What have we done today that requires the Lord's forgiveness?
What temptations are we facing today that we need help with?

It is important to pray, but not simply because we were commanded to do it - it is important because it can lead to specific inspiration and blessings when we need them.

the version I learned goes like this:


Pater Noster, qui es in Caelis
sanctificetur Nomen Tuum.
Adveniat regnum Tuum, fiat voluntas Tua
sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimmite nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimmitimus, debitoribus nostris
et ne nos inducas in tentationem
sed libera nos a malo.
Amen.

(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.
Amen.)

Sometimes I hear the last line as "deliver us from the evil one," but the Latin is pretty clearly just "deliver us from evil."

Do you sing hymns in your church? What makes singing the same hymns over and over different from reciting words over and over?

I don't believe that repetition is a problem. Honestly, repeating certain phrases over and over during worship (for example, "Lord have Mercy" or "Amen") makes worship deeper and richer for me. As long as you are concentrating on worship--as long as your heart is in the right place--the repetitions won't be vain.

I said I was gonna do this forever ago,
but better late than never

"Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos,
santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga tu reino,
y sea tu voluntad
en los cielos como en la tierra.

Danos hoy el pan de cada dia,
y perdona nuestra deudas.
No nos dejes caer in la tentación,
mas libranos de todo mal."

Now, this may or may not be directly from a translation (NIV or Reina Valera), but it's how I've remembered it

Translated (to the best of my abilities):

"Our father who is in the skies (or heaven. Spanish uses the same word for Heaven and the skies)
may your name be holy.
Your kingdom come
and your will be done
in the heavens as on the Earth.

Give us, today, our daily bread
and forgive our debts.
Do not let us fall into temptation,
but free us from all evil"


Neat

So I just found this awesome version of the Lord's Prayer. It's called "Baba Yetu" and it's the Lord's Prayer translated into Swahili.

So this song was actually composed for the sound track for the game Civilization IV, and is the first piece of video game music to be nominated for and win a Grammy Award.

Here's the original version.

Personally, I think it's really gorgeous that the sound track to a game about taking civilization from its roots to the modern era would be framed through a prayer for protection from God.
