The Lord's Prayer is a prayer recorded in the Bible (Matt, 6 9-13 and Luke, 1 2-4) as having been the form of words taught by Jesus to his disciples to use when praying to God. The versions used in churches owe more to the text in Matthew.

Some churches end the Lord's Prayer with the addition, "For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever and ever (or As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.) Amen": Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum in Latin. (This is known as the Lesser Doxology.)
