The Our Father Prayer

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.


The Our Father Prayer in Spanish

Padre nuestro
que estás en el cielo.
Santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga tu reino.
Hágase tu voluntad en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día.
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
como también nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden.
No nos dejes caer en tentación y líbranos del mal.

The Our Father Prayer in Latin

Pater noster qui es in coelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum,
fiat voluntas tua,
sicut  in coelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem
sed libera nos a malo.

The Our Father Prayer in French

Notre Père, qui es aux cieux,
Que ton nom soit sanctifié,
Que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offences
Comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation,
mais délivre-nous du mal,
car c’est à toi qu’appartiennent le règne,
la puissance et la gloire, aux siècles des siècles.

The Our Father Prayer in Italian

Padre nostro,
che sei nei cieli,
sia santificato il tuo nome;
Venga il tuo regno,
la tua volontà sia fatta sulla terra come in cielo.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano;
e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti come noi li rimettiamo contro di noi;
e non ci indurre in tentazione, ma liberaci dal male.


The Our Father Prayer in German

Unser Vater,
der Du bist im Himmel,
geheiligt werde dein Name;
Dein Reich komme, dein Wille geschehe auf Erden wie im Himmel ist.
Gib uns heute unser tägliches Brot;
Und vergib uns unsere Schuld,
wie auch wir diejenigen,
die gegen uns übertreten vergeben;
und führe uns nicht in Versuchung,
sondern erlöse uns von dem Bösen.


The Our Father Prayer

We are all Christians here.  Let us be united with this prayer – The Our Father.  We all believe in the Lord.  We all believe that He is good.  There is absolutely no reason we shouldn’t be able to pray and worship together.

I hope we all get to grow in the name of the Lord.  With the help of Facebook and other social media I’m hoping to get the Lord’s message out there.  We will be providing articles on forgiveness, prayer, and Bible quotes among many other topics.  I’m really looking forward to meeting my fellow Christian community.

I really hope that my Christian brothers and sisters out there will contribute.  Feel free to sign up and leave a prayer request, add a story, or whatever else you’d like.  It is great to see that people all over the world have been discovering what I’m trying to do here.  Do you have a prayer that has been in your family for years?  Have you had experience with God that you would like to share?  We would all love to hear it.  Feel free to contact me through the site or on our Facebook page or Twitter feed.

If you wish to continue to pray, we have more prayers listed here.  This site contains the Hail Mary, Apostle’s Creed (another one of my favorites), prayers for depression, hope, marriage, wisdom, humility, friends, family, and many others.  Do you not see a prayer you would like listed here?  I would love to hear some suggestions from my Christian brothers and sisters.

Another variation of the Our Father Prayer

Our Father, Who is in heaven,
Holy is Your Name;
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

The Importance of the Our Father Prayer

The Our Father Prayer is one of the most important prayers in the Christian faith.  This is because it is directly from the Bible; directly from God.  Christ is referred to as: Jesus, Jehovah, Our Father, Savior, and God’s Son who died for everyone so that they could be saved from their sins.  Some other prayers of the Christian faith are, the Hail Mary in honor of Jesus’ Mother, Mary, and the Serenity Prayer.

The Our Father Prayer establishes a very important message of the Christian faith.  The prayer is direct and to the point.  It’s a great beginner prayer for those who have seen the light and want to join the Christian family.  It reiterates where God resides and that His will is supreme.  Forgiveness is a vital part of Christian living which finds its way in toward the end of the prayer.  We need to remember that the Our Father and Nicene Creed are two of the most important prayers in Christianity.  Even though there are differences in how they are said between faiths, the core message is still there – God is everything, and He sent his Son for our redemption.

The Rosary and Bible

It is important as Christians that we develop a relationship with God beyond going to church and listening to a sermon on Sunday. It is in times of strength and need that we turn to prayer.  One of my favorites that is good at all times is the Our Father prayer.  Unlike what society tries to tell us at times, we know that we need God to help us day to day.  It feels good to help one another like God helps us.  That is what Christ calls us to do.  By immersing ourselves in His word and gathering with other Christians, we have choices not to react in terrible situations with anger, resentment, or dismay but to be peaceful and pray.  This is why I turn to the Our Father prayer.  It is my favorite way of communicating with God.

If you’d like to see anything else on the site let me know.  I’m working on putting together a good database of prayers, Bible quotes, and great Bible resources such as the Ten Plagues and the Eight Beatitudes.
