The prayer that Jesus taught his disciples, and that we now call the Lord’s Prayer, has been a permanent element of Christian public and private prayer for two thousand years. A different version is found in Luke’s Gospel:
The version printed on the reredos is the version that would have been familiar to seventeenth century worshippers. The traditional ending, which is not found in the gospels, is found attached to some instances of the Lord’s Prayer in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, but not to others.
