How are the Lord's Prayer and the beatitudes related?

What are the first three beatitudes?

In Matthew (chapter 5) the first three beatitudes are:Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.In Luke (chapter 6) the first three beatitudes are:Blessed be the poor: for theirs is the kingdom of God.Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled.Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh [be comforted].Scholars believe that, in this case, Matthew is closer to the original in the 'Q' document and that the author of Lukeamended the beatitudes to suit his theological priorities. For example, Matthew speaks of the "poor in spirit," but by omitting "in spirit," Luke changes the emphasis to those who live in poverty, a frequent concern of this gospel. Luke's second beatitude follows the theme of poverty ("ye that hunger now") while Matthew's fourth beatitude has a more spiritual meaning: "hunger and thirst after righteousness."
