What Verse Is The Lord’s Prayer in the Bible?

Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4 are the Bible verses that contain the Lord’s Prayer. The versions of the prayer differ in length and wording in these two presentations of the Lord’s Prayer. Luke 11:4 asks forgiveness of sins, whereas Matthew 6:13 refers to forgiving debts.

Matthew 6:13 adds an additional statement that acknowledges a belief in the kingdom, power and glory of God and adds “Amen,” none of which is found in Luke’s version. The Bible indicates that Jesus composed the prayer and taught it to his followers. The Lord’s Prayer is called the Pater Noster, the Latin term for Our Father. The structure of the prayer expresses the order of values in which salutations acknowledge the sovereignty of God before supplications address the needs of man.
