Prayer is God’s gift to the one who prays

St John Climacus

When his friends asked Jesus to teach them to pray, he gave them the Lord’s Prayer. We can do no better than to say this prayer slowly and thoughtfully.

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 trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us

and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

(Matthew 6. 9-13)
