While among the Nephites, the Savior offered various instructions on prayer, including a version of the Lord's Prayer. While there are variations among versions of the Lord's prayer in biblical and early Christians writings, the version in 3 Nephi is the most unique. Each of its three differences appear to be due to the post-resurrectional and temple setting.
