  1. man…. who makes these videos/typography layouts? Great Job! big credits to whomever! and good job P.Piper you did an okay job hahahaha

  2. Today as I was walking home from school I was asking God, why is it that You taught us to pray like this? And after I saw this video I realized why.. thank you!! 🙂

  3. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever! I would have loved some doxology on the end of this one. Surprised it wasn't there, considering that's the closing of the Lord's Prayer.

  4. *that was a beautiful supplementation to the Lord's Prayer Pastor Piper, but in regards to "our daily Bread." Rather than mentioning money, the point of Jesus/The Word being the bread that satisfies our spiritual hunger would be "better?" 🙂

  5. What a great blessing. Those words of our Lord Jesus just burst to life when we not only say prayers, but pray in the Spirit. Prayer is the secret. "Lord, tech us to pray, as John also taught his disciples" (Luke 11:1).

  6. Hi Desiring God, I have translated this video in Portuguese because it is so fantastic. Let me know if you wish the subtitle file in Portuguese, it would be a pleasure to share it.

  7. In the grind that is life, in the places where our Heavenly Father seems so far removed,
    He is there if we seek Him; then Glorify Him, for even in the tiny things we may think,
    do, or say; we will find Him there. Then we will be One in Him, and walk with Him in His Kingdom, no matter where in the physical world we have been placed..Thank You Father.

  8. The visuals are extraordinary… it adds a sense of peace even though the words declare peace on their own

  9. isnt the earth flat according the bible? is then there a universe? (what does the bible say, not nasa, media, 'science'…)

  10. How to pray:
    Step 1: pretend you are talking to something that is not there
    Step 2: answer yourself
    Step 3: pretend the thing that is not there gave you the answer

  11. Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
    He said to them, “When you pray, say:
    “‘Father, hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread.
    Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
    And lead us not into temptation.” amen?! luke 11:1-4

  12. Thank you so much for posting this blessing! I utilize it every week, especially to help jump start and augment my own prayers.

  13. Awesome video but, John said some things that were not God. I am not a sinner, and I don't ask God for just enough to live….. this is not Scriptural prayer. We are no longer sinners anymore. And God gives us more than enough so we can bless others with what we have.

  14. Thank you for this great and awesome video I pray with this prayer everyday before I start to work, Lord thank you for everything YOU are Majestic Lord. Thanks Pastor Piper for this prayer.

  15. I breath in your grace Jesus, saturate my being heart and soul with the mercy of your love as I pray ,especially this prayer with a hunger to be one in heart and mind with you .Thank you Jesus Amen

  16. Just as an idea… it'd be great to have a video of Lord's Prayer prayed in different languages. Sometimes I think of this prayer being repeated non-stop around the globe in all tribes and tongues, reaching up to heaven… just amazing to ponder that…

  17. Prayer and Having a Prayer closet
    Along with Reading and Feeding on The Bread of Life Every day without fail

  18. Glory to God for this prayer, such a blessed presence and peace overwhelmed my soul as I joined up in this prayer. God bless you!

  19. Thankyou for this video.

  20. Nowadays, i only pray in my heart. Not in temple and at home. I stand by what i said, " i won't step into any temple or even pray at home until i leave this house and place."
