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 debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.

Disciples Prayer 2
Thank You for teaching us that prayer is worship. Thank You for teaching us to humble ourselves and submit all our heart’s longings to Your glory, to the advance of Your kingdom, and to the unfolding of Your will. And we know, God, that when we pray like that, You will meet our needs. You will forgive our sins, and You will protect us. And we will give You all the glory. Make us people of prayer not that You might be shaped to our will, but that we might be shaped to Yours; not that You might fulfill the desires of our kingdom, but that we might conform to Yours; not that You might bless us, but that we might hallow You. And so loving Father, give us bread to feed our souls, give us pardon for our sins, give us strength and protection unto glory as we submit to Your divine purpose. In Christ’s great name.
