The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.


Glory to God, whose power working in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.  Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church and in Jesus Christ, for ever and ever.  Amen.


Go with the blessing of the One who understands our trials and tribulations.  Go with the blessings of the cornerstone of our faith.  This day and everyday.  Amen.
