The Lord's Prayer

Our Father Who are in heaven

Hallowed be Your name,

Your kingdom come;

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day the bread of our need

and forgive us our debts and our sins,

as we have forgiven our debtors;

Do not lead us into temptation,

but deliver us from the evil one;

for Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory,

forever and ever. Amen.


(All prayers must be end with Nicene Creed, followed by Service of Mother of God and service of Saints and ends by the Hail of Mary)

The Nicene Creed

We believe in One God,

The Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in One Lord, Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of God, Who was begotten of the Father before all worlds. Light of Light, True God of True God, begotten and not made, and being of one substance with His Father; by Whom all things were made; Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, Mother of God. And He became man, and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and He suffered, died, and was buried, and on the third day He rose according to His will. And ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of His Father. And He will come again with great glory to judge both the living and the dead, and His kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life to all, Who proceeds from the Father, Who together with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, Who spoke through the prophets and Apostles.

And in one Holy Catholic (Universal) and Apostolic Church. We confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the new life in the world to come. Amen.


(Optional prayer)

Hail Mary full of grace, our Lord is with you.

Blessed are you among women

and blessed is the fruit of your womb,

our Lord Jesus Christ.

O Lady Mary, virgin mother of God,

pray for us sinners now and always at the hour of our death.
