“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’

(Matthew 9-13)

This is the prayer that we have all recited so many times that we have it memorized.  This is the prayer that I turn to in both good times and bad times.  It's my "go to" prayer.  Besides containing the most beautiful words, it brings back memories of comfort that have served me well throughout my life.
