I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

Our Father, 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
and 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.
Amen.

— Matthew 6:9–13

The Lord’s Prayer is a central prayer in Christianity also commonly known as the Our Father and in Latin as the Pater Noster. In the New Testament, it appears in two forms: a longer form in the Gospel of Matthew as part of the Sermon on the Mount, and a shorter form in the Gospel of Luke, as a response by Jesus to a request by “one of his disciples” to teach them “to pray as John taught his disciples”. The prayer concludes with “deliver us from evil” in Matthew, and with “lead us not into temptation” in Luke.
