How do I memorize the Lord's prayer?
By looking at it when you forget a part and then eventually you won't have to look at it. Like memorising sheet music, or probably any else in the world. I haven't memorised it though I do repeat parts of it and stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP5R-ZSms-U

>>9229 By praying it and praying it frequently.
>>9229 Pray it every night, you'll get it anon, God is with you
You don't have to memorize it, just know what it means and you can repeat it in your own words. https://biblehub.com/matthew/4-4.htm
>>9229 I wonder if it really matters how a person prays to god. Do you need to use a specific name when talking/"calling" him? I guess Jesus is his son, and maybe we need to talk "through" jesus to god by using jesus' name?? Because I've been praying forever and I talk to him(god) all day, like you would to someone standing next to you, but he never talks back and he never shines any hope in my life. I guess it's better to hope he'll help, than to give up on him, since he's all I have left in my life. He's already taken everything else away from me, and made it impossible for me to do anything with my life. WHY does he have to be like this? I've done nothing to him or anyone else. I've done nothing by be kind and shine my light in the world. Job had a happy ending, why can't I? I've revoked god's right to abuse me, but he continues. What gives him the right to abuse me, when I didn't even give him the right to create me. Why can't he just be an adult and take responsibility for his mistakes - unless the theory is true that he's incompetent.
>>9229 It's not that long: >Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. >Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done >In earth, as it is in heaven. >Give us this day our daily bread. >And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. >And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: >For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. >Amen.  At least that's how I break it up.

>>9229 You don't. Matt 6:7:But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matt 6:9: After this manner therefore pray ye: Jesus was giving an EXAMPLE of how to pray. He did not tell us to repeat him verbatim. Repeating the same thing over and over is useless and sinful.
>>9763 Saying a prayer once a day is not repetitious, Anon
>>9765 Praying daily is perfectly fine. Where did God command us to repeat the Lord's prayer verbatim?
>>9767 But is it bad if you mean it?
>>9767 >After this manner therefore pray ye
>>9229 You pray?
>>9781 Prayer is the foundation of faith, without it there is no faith, and without faith there is no point to any of this. If you believe that prayer is pointless then there is no need for the church, or for the bible, or for anything to do with God. It is such a pointlessly silly position that immediately answers itself that no serious Christian aught to reject prayer.
>>9781 Yes.
>>9778 After this manner =/= "Repeat after me"
>>9763 >I read the first book and skipped the others And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Luke 11:1-4
>>9808 That is literally exactly what it means
>>9746 >Our Father which art Jarring.
>>11325 art is the second-person singular form of be in Early Modern English. It is also still in modern English: You are, not you is, which comes from thou art. Modern English is a language with a greater number of words but breaks all of its own grammatical rules.
>>11329 11325 is a shitskin troll, don't even bother.
>>11329 I was referring to the which.
