I believe that what is commonly called the Lord’s Prayer should actually be called the Apostle’s Prayer, not the Lord’s Prayer. I’ve said this from the pulpit a number of times, and the reason is that Jesus never sinned. The prayer states, “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” Why would that be the Lord’s Prayer when He never sinned?
Let’s look at the context of the prayer. The apostles asked Jesus to teach them to pray like He prayed (see Luke 11:1). Jesus said, “Here is how I want you to pray.”
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Luke 11:2).
