Here's a side by side look at Matthew and Luke. Common words are in black, differences are in red:
Father,Hallowed be your nameYour kingdom comeGive us this day our daily breadAnd forgive us our debtsAs we also have forgiven our debtorsAnd do not bring us to the time of trial.
We approach God as "Father," one who we relate to intimately."Hallowed be your name" and "Your kingdom Come" call on God to be God. They implore God to truly take charge of life, our lives, to bring justice and peace to our world, something only God can bring about.The remaining petitions concern three basic needs: food, forgiveness, and fidelity. These petitions name what is essential for the life of our individual bodies, the life of our communal body---be it society, the church, or the world---and the life of our ongoing relationship with God. These are the gifts of the kingdom, which will not be refused, because they flow from our being united with the very being of God, who sustains, forgives, and is faithful to us.
