Praying as Jesus Taught Us

July 15, 2019

Jesus teaching disciples

The Lord’s Prayer (the Our Father) was taught by Jesus Christ Himself (Matthew 6:9-13). What a beautiful prayer–and how amazing to address God the Father as “Our Father”!

At every Holy Mass we pray the Lord’s Prayer, and we also pray it before each group of 10 Hail Marys in the Rosary.

Regarding the Lord’s Prayer, St. Augustine tells us: “If we pray rightly and fittingly, we can say nothing else but what is contained in this prayer of Our Lord.” And St. Thomas Aquinas tells us: “By way of brief summary, it should be known that the Lord’s Prayer contains all that we ought to desire and all that we ought to avoid.”

If you have not already memorized the Lord’s Prayer, it is easy to commit this prayer to memory. (And you can learn this prayer and read more about it on The Lord’s Prayer page). Then you can pray it anytime, anywhere!
