The Lord's Prayer For Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come...for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."

Matthew 19:14, Mark 10:14, Luke 18:16

Here is the prayer which Jesus taught us. He said that God is his Father and our Father. So we pray, with Jesus and with people everywhere:

Our Father,

We cannot see God with our eyes. God is far beyond us, in heaven, but He hears us and wants us to come near. So we pray:

who art in heaven,

We honour God's name as holy. When we hear the name of God we should be happy because God made all things.

God made us and loves us. So we pray:

hallowed be Thy name,

God wishes to bring good things to our world. We can help by doing good things every day. So we pray:

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

God is like a kind father. We need food to be strong, clothes to keep warm, and so many more things. So we pray:

Give us this day our daily bread,

God forgives us when we do something wrong. We must then forgive those who do something wrong to us. So we pray:

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Wherever we go, God is there to take our hand and guide us. Even in danger, God will help us to know what to do. So we pray:

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

God created everything. His is mighty and knows everything that goes on in the world. So we pray:

For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory. Forever and ever. Amen.
