Prayers of the Community and the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father who is in Heaven hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
And lead us not into a time of trial, but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen!
