Our Father in Heaven, holy is your Name; your kingdom come, your will be done, in earth and heaven the same. Give us this day our daily bread, forgive us our sin; as we forgive each other for all we've done and been. Keep us from temptation, ever in your care. Deliver us from evil, every day and everywhere.  For yours is the kingdom on earth and in heaven, the power and the glory for ever.
