What is the origin of the ending of the Lord's Prayer beginning with, "For thine is the kingdom....?"

The standard ending of the Lord's Prayer is not in the Bible.  When was it added to the Luke passage?

Luke 11:2 - 4

ESV - 2 And he said to them, "When you pray, say: "Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. 3 Give us each day our daily bread.

In my thinking this verse in Matthew 6:13, was inspired by King David. David is considered to be the writer of many of the Psalms. Look at Psalms 9 & 10. They are thought to be only one Psalm. 

Psalm 9 starts with I will praise you O Lord. Verse 7, but the Lord shall endure forever. Psalm 10:16, The Lord is King forever, and ever.

Let's look at 1Chronicles 29:10 - 20. Recorded for us is David's praise to God. Verse 11 states "Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory...You are exalted as head over all. Vs. 14, for all things come from You. Verse 20, so all the assembly blessed the Lord God...and prostrated themselves before the Lord and the king.

I am sure that much of David's thoughts were in Jesus heart. I think that he emulated his words when he gave the model prayer in Matthew 6.

In Luke 11:2 - 4, the prayer is similar. But do you know two people who tell the same incident in the exact same words?

We are blessed to have a Bible in recorded words that we can study, AMEN!
