Two versions of prayer. NIV: 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. KJV: Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, as in Heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Can you make the distinctions that these two prayers are not the same?

Sorry, I did not mention that the verses I was referencing are Luke 11:2-4 in the NIV and KJV.
Well that makes more sense. I will not attempt to defend the Bible. It does that well enough on its own :) My NIV footnotes say that some manuscripts add the parts that are "missing" between the two versions.

Our prayers should align with God's will; otherwise, they will be soulish in nature, "for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh."
The verses are quoted from Luke 11:2-4, not from Matthew 6. The KJV verses are quoted from the Cambridge Edition.
Why do they keep changing it?
Isn't it a case of say what Jesus recommended his Disciples to say, rather than what the congregation thinks he should've said?
days-- cause that is what liberals do as they evolve
With each new modern version of the "Bible" that comes out, is a piece by piece destruction of the Word of God.
more nonscriptural foolishness

celafoe- I'm with you on this one.
Jesus was a Nazarene and this is from a site that is about HIS teachigs and the transcript from the scrolls. I am sorry u can't accept the truth.from original manuscript. Jesus was called NEW AGE back then too. I don't care what you believe.
