On Earth as It Is in Heaven

Our Father which 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:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever.

Morning Prayer

O Infinite God of life, goodness, and generous
love, I dedicate my heart, my life, to you.
Help me to cherish all human life,
and do the good you want me to do.
Make me a loving example of your generous love,
and a blessing to everyone I see.
May your goodness be fully in us,

and in all that we think and say and do.

St. Francis of Assisi
