The Lord’s Prayer (Inspirational Video)
I pray, O God, pour out on me your Holy Spirit–the spirit of prayer–that I may ever love and desire to pray; being daily free to approach you, with all confidence in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, William Loehe
(Matthew 6:9-13 NKJV)
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
