The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, Who Art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. They Kingdom Come, they will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our Sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen.
A Responsive Reading Based on Romans 15
Leader: Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Leader: And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Leader: Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Leader: For scarcely for a righteous man will one die;
yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
Leader: But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Leader: For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
