Our Father in Spanish
(Lord's Prayer)


Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos

Santificado sea tu Nombre

Venga tu reino

Hágase tu voluntad

En la tierra como en el cielo

Danos hoy el pan de este día

y perdona nuestras deudas

como nosotros perdonamos nuestros deudores

y no nos dejes caer en al tentación

sino que líbranos del malo.

Amen.



Explore the "Our Father" prayer through the writings of three famous biblical theologians (Matthew Henry, Adam Clarke and Albert Barnes).

The Lord's prayer opens with addressing God as "Father who art in Heaven". There are then seven petitions. The first requests are contected with the worship of God ("Hallowed be thy name") and His ways. The next four concern the needs of man - his physical ("Give us today our daily bread"), mental (with temptation) spiritual (against evil) and relational needs (forgiveness). The prayer then concludes with a doxology.

In this section of the website, the Lord's Prayer is explored through the writings of a number of well known biblical scholars and theologians, including John Welsey (the founding father of the modern day Methodist Church), Charles Spurgeon (famous 19th century English Baptist preacher) and John Calvin (16th century reformer and theologian). The study by John Wesley considers that the prayer may be broken down into three sections - it contains a preface ("Our Father"), petitions ("Give us this day" etc), and a conclusion (the doxology).
