Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. The Gospel of St. In response to his disciples' request "Lord, teach us to pray," Jesus gives them the fundamental Christian prayer, the Our Father, the prayer of hope.
