Bishop issues call to prayer

Posted by Bishop LaTrelle Miller Easterling on

Bishop LaTrelle Easterling invites you to join her at 12 noon every day to pray the Lord's Prayer. “More has been accomplished by prayer than the world will ever know,” the bishop said. “We may be unable to gather physically, but we can gather in prayer-and that is a powerful presence.” An English version, from the Contemporary English Bible, is below.  Read the same prayer from the King James Version, the Revised Standard Version, The Message transliteration, and in Spanish.  Visit for many more versions and translations.

"Our Father who is in heaven, uphold the holiness of your name.
Bring in your kingdom so that your will is done on earth as it’s done in heaven.
Give us the bread we need for today.
Forgive us for the ways we have wronged you,
just as we also forgive those who have wronged us.
And don’t lead us into temptation, but rescue us from the evil one." (Matthew 6:9-13)
