About This Message

“Therefore, you should pray like this:  Our Father in heaven,  Your name be honored as holy. Your kingdom come.  Your will be done  on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts,  as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us into  temptation,  but deliver us from the evil one.  For Yours is the kingdom and the power  and the glory forever.  Amen.”
