This paper sets The Lord’s Prayer in the context provided by Matthew. The Lord’s Prayer was given by Jesus to be prayed in private. One prays as a member of two groups, all humankind (the “Our” of Our Father) and Jesus’ church (the “us” of the prayer). Praying for God to complete Jesus’ work, Petitions 1-3, requires a follower of Jesus to live in such a way, Petitions 4-6, that all might have the opportunity to know Our Father, the one who values each and every human being and provides for our needs.
