Hear Jesus’ words:
When you pray, pray privately alone,
when you fast, don’t make a show of it,
don’t do it to be seen;
and your Father who sees in secret
will reward you.
Believe what Jesus says,
God is generous; God is good.

25Jesus told them, “In this world the kings and great men order their slaves around, and the slaves have no choice but to like it!b 26 ut among you, the one who serves you best will be your leader. 27Out in the world the master sits at the table and is served by his servants. But not here! For I am your servant.. . . . .Luke 22:24-27

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
