Jesus moved away from the crowds and went up on the mountain to teach those students who came to him. He taught them,
Let Your name be sanctified.
Let Your kingdom come,
May Your will be seen
On the earth, just as in the sky.
Give us day by day the next day’s bread,
And forgive our debts
The same as we forgave the debts that others owed us.
And do not put us to the test,
But snatch us from the Evil One’s clutches, let it be so.
The Lord’s Prayer was intended to set a mood. While not strictly necessary, it’s a way of tuning into to God. It’s kind of like turning on your IM on your computer. You can send your communications other ways, but this is a direct way to get your message across.
