Once, in a certain place, Jesus was at prayer.
When he ceased, one of his disciples said, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.”
He answered, “When you pray, say:
Father, thy Name be hallowed–
Thy kingdom come.
Give us each day’s bread
and forgive our sins–
for we too forgive all who have done us wrong–
and do not bring us to the test.
