This we offer in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ who taught us to pray saying, “Our Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your 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 who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil; for Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever and ever.” Amen
