Word and Reading

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not bring us to the time of trial, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

 
God be in our heads, and in our understanding; God be in our eyes, and in our looking; God be in our mouth, and in our speaking; God be in our heart, and in our thinking; God be at our end, and at our departing.
God be with us today, all day wherever we go and whatever we do.  Amen.
 
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore.  Amen.
