Family Prayer

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, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

“Gloria Patri” 

Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the begin-
ning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen, amen.
