Lord’s Library editors created this short resource which outlines the Our Father Prayer verses in the KJV in Matthew 6:9-13.
The Our Father Prayer KJV verses in the Bible are found in Matthew 6:9-13: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
The “Our Father Prayer” is commonly known as a Catholic prayer, and a quick search engine query bears that out. In fact, the top-three results for “Our Father Prayer” on Google yields recommended reads from Xavier University, Eternal Word Television’s “Catholic” section, and Hallow’s Catholic prayer app website. While the association is an obvious one, there is no doubt that this prayer has been made popular among younger generations of all the different Christian denominations through movies, television, books, and other media.
This idea has merit, and the same search engine query mentioned above can explain it. It’s no surprise that the top-queried word after “Our Father Prayer” on Google is the word “Catholic” since this is mostly seen as a Catholic prayer. However, it’s important to note that the seventh-most popular query for this topic is “Our Father Prayer KJV” while the tenth-most is “Our Father Protestant” – both signaling to us that this prayer is drawing interest online from a significant non-Catholic audience.
One other thing we noticed was all the interest in having the Our Father Prayer displayed in English, Spanish, French, and Latin as well (Editor’s note: We’re guessing for easy comparison). So we included those below.
Note: Only the English quotation is from the King James Version.
