Pray Each Day
As well as coming along to any of the events listed below we invite you to ‘pray each day’ by using the Lord’s Prayer as a prayer that we all share.
The Lord’s Prayer
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.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
