Large Lord’s Prayer posters for kids

I have a special treat for you today! I’m sharing my Lord’s Prayer poster for kids in three different translations and three different color palettes! And they are a large 16 x 20″ size too.

This is probably my most popular printable of all time. I get so many emails asking about versions and colors on the original post, I thought I’d share some variations.

Unfortunately I don’t have time design each possible combination, so I hope you find one that works for you here. If you are a church, I’d love for you to use this any way you see fit. You don’t have to ask me. I just request that it not be sold.

I made this poster to hang in my boys’ room. They learned the whole thing fairly quickly even though they couldn’t read. I pointed to each symbol to prompt them as we recited it. I’m emotionally attached to it and will always remember our sweet times together saying the Lord’s prayer together at bedtime. I hope you enjoy it too!

Sharing our Lord and savior with children is the most important work! May God bless you and your children as you spend time with Him together.

The Lord’s Prayer 

Matthew 6:5-14 (ESV)

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.

14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

You can choose from three color palettes:

  • Coral: coral, dusty blue, gold and mint
  • Blue: navy, soft blue and gray
  • Red: red, blue, lime

And three translations:

  • NIV/ESV (only differs between “this day”/ “today” and “evil one”/”evil”)
  • KJV
  • NKJV

  1. I absolutely love this! I have one picky request, although I understand if you can’t or don’t want to change it…the KJV should read-as it is in heaven, and also, give us this day, instead of today. Like I said, very picky. We just have it memorized in KJV, and I’d like it to be the same on my son’s wall. :-) But if there’s no way to change it easily, I understand! Loving your blog. :-)

  2. Thanks for catching that, Lyss! I updated the post. My goodness, I really thought I had double checked! Glad it’s right now :)

  3. I really love how the pictures correlate with the words. My kids are little, and I really think the pictures would help them learn it! I have been tasked with finding a Lord’s Prayer poster for our Sunday School room, but I’m having a really tough time finding one that has the same words we use! I tried making my own, but I am not very skilled in the IT department. What program did you use?

  4. That program is way beyond me! It’s not my style to ask for a favour from someone I don’t know, but…here goes. Would you ever consider doing one more version with slightly different wording? <>

  6. I’m hoping Lindsey’s request is for the wording I’m looking for too! Or a blank one so we can type in our version with many more arts, thys, trespasses… etc ;) I would love it for my sons room but I can really only use my version.

  7. Hello! I TOTALLY love this. I have a question. Where do you recommend having it printed and on what kind of paper before framing? Thank so much!

  8. These are great! I actually used these and did prayer stations with them so that the kids could see which prayer station went with each part of the prayer. A black and white coloring page version would be awesome too! Thank you for sharing your gifts with us. :)

  9. Oh that a clever activity! I love that. Maybe one of these days I’ll get around to a coloring page. That’s a great idea.

  10. Thank you for sharing these – they are beautiful! I plan to print one to hang in the wall in our Joy Choir room (grades 1-3). I appreciate your trying to accommodate different translations. Would you be willing to share the name of the font you used, for those who might like to update it ourselves?
    Again, thank you for your generosity!

  11. Hi Wendi! The font is called Barrio. I love to think of children that age singing songs of God together in a choir room!

  12. hi Kate, thank you so much for this, its so beautiful !! can i ask what the biggest size is you recommend printing without distorting the quality ? thank you for sharing your gift.

  13. LOVE this! It looks amazing. You don’t by chance have each section in its own file that I could use, do you(NIV)? We are starting a series on the Lords Prayer but we are going bit by bit and breaking it down rather than doing the whole thing at once.

  14. Is there a way I can edit it to create the NIRV version? I’m wanting to give them to the kids in my Wednesday service. We are going over the Lord’s prayer for the month of January and thought it would be a cute gift.

  15. Loving this! I am teaching our kids at church the Luke version but we can use this too. Just a spelling mistake on your page (not the printable) – Under the thing that says ‘Free posters Lord’s Prayer’ it says 3 colours, 3 ‘traslantions’ (my spell checker is not liking that!! :)
    Loving your site – only found it today but I’m already inspired to do 5 minutes of stuff :)

  16. Hi Kate, this is beautiful!! Is it possible to get it in a smaller size (8.5 x 11)?
    I love this and want to share it with my students too.

  17. Hi Linda! You can download the image and print it any size you want. For example, if you download the image to your desktop and print to your printer, just select “scale to fit.” If you print it at a store, you can select 8×10 from their size selection. Going bigger to smaller isn’t a problem like going smaller to bigger :)

  18. Hi Kate,

    I’m a missionary in Asia and stumbled upon your website while searching for ideas for teaching The Lord’s Prayer to our Sunday school kids at our international church this weekend. Thank you for this BEAUTIFUL poster! I will encourage parents to download the poster and frame it at home. I do have one request, which others may have already pointed out. The KJV version should be “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed BE Thy name, not BY.” I know you can’t make this change by this weekend, but maybe in the future? I imagine you are one of those amazing people who thinks way faster than you write. (I’m an editor, and have few original ideas. I write too slowly to make writing worthwhile!) I saw that you made corrections after others pointed them out. Your humility and non-defensive attitude absolutely blew me away. You are a true Jesus-follower to be so open to correction. I see your love for the Lord and His perfect Word as you have adjusted to meet the desires of so many with the various translations. Blessings on you, sister!

  19. You got it! They should all be updated now. I can always take a correction worded so kindly! <3 May God bless you and the important work you are doing. I mean that with great sincerity.

  20. Thank you so much!! These are beautiful. I got on my computer to design this very thing out for my 5-year-old’s room since we’ve been learning this together at bed time but when I saw you already had one designed I was so happy!!! Saved this busy mama some time :-) I printed it out in the coral KJV. I appreciate you! (And your name! haha)

  21. Thanks so much, fellow Kate! :) How sweet you and your daughter are doing it before bed. I did it with my boys, but now you’re reminding me that my daughter is old enough now too!

  22. Hi, Kate,
    I was so grateful to find this set and I started using it with my 2’s-4’s class this Sunday. They loved using this set. I cut some into cards and let them match them by placing them on top of the poster. However, I am really trying to teach them word for word how the verse goes and I noticed there are a lot of discrepancies between what the NKJV cards say and the actual wording of the verses as written in the NKJV Bible. Is there any way these could be edited either by you or me so it reads exactly like it does in the Bible? I actually have one child who reads and it is going to get confusing when it doesn’t match what I am saying in class. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  23. Brilliant idea! I am teaching the Lord’s Prayer for Sunday school, ages 6-11 . This is perfect for kids to learn the prayer! God bless you abundantly.

  24. What a find! What a gift! When discussing leading kids in prayer in our KidMin, especially when they want to prayer for cucumbers or potatoes (our silly Kindergarten boy!), Pastor suggested the Lord’s Prayer. This is the perfect way to help them pray in line with God’s word and His will – in manageable “bites”, with colors that complement our logo and classroom. Thank you so much!
