The Prayers


The Lord’s Prayer

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 forgive our debtors. *
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power and the glory,

for ever.

Amen.

The Jesus Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ

Have mercy on me.

23rd Psalm

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green  pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

* this line has various versions and many churches use the words, “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” and the more modern version uses, “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.”
