Our FatherWho Art In Heaven


“This is how you are to pray:

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 who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

I am not in control of my life nor of the people or the world around me.
God, our Father, who is in heaven, is in control.
His will reigns over all the earth and throughout the universe.
He plans the birth of the stars and the falling of the leaves.

He wills only what is good, true, and beautiful for me and the whole of creation.
Even when I am weak and do wrong by myself and by my fellowmen,
He cares for me with a forgiving love and a gentle compassion.
I am tempted often but I want not to be a disciple of the Evil One,
from whom I pray he delivers me.
