Our Father, who art in Heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy Kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those that trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

The lord’s prayer, our Father prayer is prayed

and is to be repeated as part of our daily prayer.

It starts out by addressing God as our Father

in heaven, as His name is honored and is

above all names, as we are His Children.

He wants us to spend time in prayer

with Him. The prayer moves on to pray

that God’s Kingdom will become the

norm on earth, replacing human rules

and governments, which are often

driven by greed and power. After God

do we turn to our own needs to be

satisfied. To forgive the wrong things

we have done. We ask for God’s

guidance and to protect us

through life.

Finally we turn back to God, and acknowledge His

supremacy as the almighty ruler.

Pray the Lord’s prayer then take one of the phrases

and spend a few moments contemplating on that

phrase. Imagine what it means for God’s Kingdom

to come, how we forgive those who sin against us,

for example. Then use those thoughts for further

prayer. Then go back to the Lord’s Prayer.

2 Chr. 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble

themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked

ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and

will heal their land.

Psalms 5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God:

for unto thee will I pray.
