How To Pray The Lord’s Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer is a well-known prayer that has been used for centuries to teach Christians how to pray. The prayer is made up of nine petitions, and can be prayed in a variety of ways.
One way to pray the Lord’s Prayer is by reading each petition aloud and then saying the corresponding answer aloud. For example, when praying the petition “Thy will be done,” say “thou art my will, Thou hast set me free” out loud.
Another way to pray the Lord’s Prayer is by thinking about each petition individually. For example, when praying the petition “Forgive us our trespasses,” think about all the times you’ve sinned and ask God to forgive you for them.
Some people prefer to pray the Lord’s Prayer silently, focusing on each petition one at a time. This way allows you to connect more with God during prayer and feel more connected to His heart.
The Our Father
The Our Father prayer is a favorite of Christians around the world. It is a simple, yet profound prayer that lays out our relationship with God. The prayer is made up of three parts: “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” This prayer expresses our dependence on God for everything we need in life and asks for forgiveness for our own sins as well as those of others.
Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death

Dearest Jesus, come to Bethlehem tonight! Come into little Joseph’s room where he lay asleep; come now into Mary’s restful womb; come into her grateful heart whose thoughts today are only of thee! Bring peace on earth tonight: let not a single child be without a gift from his most gracious Father! Come now, O King of Peace; come now, O Prince of Peace; make your dwelling among us! In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
