Praper. OUR Father which art in heaven. Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Creed. I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hades ; * the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints ; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN. * Acts 2: 27, 31; Eph. 4: 9, 10. Revised Version.
The Beatitudes of the mount. Blessed are the poor in spirit : For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn : For they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness : For they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful : For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart : For they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers : For they shall be called the children of God. — Matt. 5: 3–9.
