LDS Perspectives on The Lord's Prayer

Providence, UT

Full Article:

The Lord's Prayer is possibly one of the most famous and beloved passages of scripture in all of Christendom, and rightly so. In it we have recorded for us the sweet and simple teachings of the Savior concerning the correct way to approach God in humble supplication. Some faiths have enshrined this example of prayer as a prayer to be recited verbatim in worship as well as in personal devotion. While I disagree that this was the Savior's intent in his teachings concerning prayer, I do believe that each of us might benefit greatly if we were to pause and weigh this prayer with greater consideration than we have typically done in the past. The Lord's Prayer does not always receive the attention that it deserves among members of the LDS church, and I believe that the words of instruction and inspiration contained in this brief prayer merit deeper reflection, pondering, and meditation, to the end that we might more fully incorporate these teachings into our own prayers, and in our own lives.
