The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.


We are praying for Peace in the world -please join us in saying the Universal Prayer for Peace every day:

Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope,
from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love,
from war to peace.
Let Peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.
Peace, peace, peace.             (Satish Kumar)

(The prayer was first publicly used in July 1981 by Mother Teresa in London. Each day at noon people of all faiths and none across the world use this Prayer . This forms a wave of prayer and hope rippling each day around the globe.)
