The History And Origin Of
The Glory Be Prayer
Many Catholic prayers, including the Glory Be prayer, were formed to combat false teachings.
- The first reason is because it is fitting to praise God in this form following the example Jesus gave when He instructed his followers go out and baptize.
- And secondly to defend and promote the belief in the Blessed Trinity. The belief in three divine Persons in one God.
Lord God, heavenly King,
almighty God and Father,
we worship you, we give you thanks,
we praise you for your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ,
only Son of the Father,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world:
have mercy on us;
you are seated at the right hand
of the Father: receive our prayer.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
You alone are the Most High,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.
By the 600s the Catholic Rosary prayer, the Glory Be Prayer, has been prayed in the exact form as you now pray it.
It has always been a fitting prayer to use when ending a longer prayer form.
Traditionally it was used at the end of the psalms and after a sermon and of course after each decade of the Rosary prayer.
