The “Our Father Prayer” (Matthew 6:5-14 Luke 11:1-4) has traditionally been taught as the “Lord’s Prayer” but this prayer is actually the “Believer’s Prayer”. When Jesus spoke this prayer He was teaching the Believer how to pray. The True Lord’s Prayer can be found in the book of John 17:1-26. It’s a beautiful prayer one you should truly keep in your heart. Due to the length of this prayer I’ll just share with you Jesus’ personal prayer for you.
The True Lord’s Prayer
“My prayer is not for them [Jesus’ disciples] alone.
I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message,
that all of them may be one, Father,
just as You are in Me and I am in You.
May they also be in Us
so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.
I have given them the glory that You gave Me,
that they may be one as We are one—
I in them and You in Me—
so that they may be brought to complete unity.
Then the world will know that You sent Me
and have loved them even as You have loved Me.
“Father, I want those You have given Me
to be with Me where I am,
and to see My glory, the glory You have given Me
because You loved Me before the creation of the world.
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know You,
I know You, and they know that You have sent Me.
I have made You known to them,
and will continue to make You known
in order that the love You have for Me
may be in them
and that I myself may be in them.”
