Community Prayer and Lord’s Prayer – Jeff and Lita Pratt
Our God, 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 and ever. Amen.
