Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family;
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those
who sin against us.
take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us;
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.
unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth;
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.
that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
