The LORD'S PRAYER in Popular Culture

The Lord's Prayer, more commonly known as Our Father, is without a doubt the most popular prayer in the world. It came directly from the lips of Jesus Christ himself and it's words are as hallowed now as they were 2000 years ago. In fact, every line in The Lord's Prayer is immediately recognized because of it's enormity. I've done some research and found it's treasured lines in various forms of popular culture. Here is what I have found...
