    Pray then like this:

    “Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name.

    Your kingdom come,

    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.

    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.
    (ESV)
