hallowed be thy name—Whenever we think of your name, whenever we speak your name in prayer, whenever we act in your name for the good of others, we plunge ourselves into your immense holiness. May you be praised for letting us know from experience how great and holy you are!thy kingdom come—O Lord, we wait for lasting peace and justice in our world—for the kind that comes only through Jesus your Son. We wait for your Kingdom to arrive even as we continue on earth your Son’s hard work of bringing it about.thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven—Before your heavenly throne, O God, the saints and angels chant a perfect “yes” to your plans for all of creation. May we echo their “yes” every day in the way we live our lives here on earth.Give us this day our daily bread—O God, we ask you to ful ll our every hunger—not only the hunger of our bodies for food, but also the hunger of our minds for eternal truth, the hunger of our souls for in nite goodness, and the hunger of our spirits for everlasting beauty.and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us—O Lord, we know that too often we fail to love and serve you as you deserve, and we fail to love our neighbors as we should. Forgive us for all our sins against you and against them, and help us to look with compassion upon others whenever we feel wronged by them.and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil—O God, make us strong against the temptation to do wrong—strong as your Son Jesus was strong. And keep us far away from all evil people, places, and situations. Only then can we be the free and happy persons that you created us to be, through Christ our Lord.
