Well, at my church we always say: Our Father Who art in heave 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 Amen That's how I have always said it. I would get thrown if i attended a church that said it in more contemporary language. In mass, we stop after "but deliver us from evil". Thats where the priest says a small separate prayer, and then after he is done we say: "For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever Amen". By ourselves we never say that part. _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- 'The beginning calls for courage; the end demands care'
