"And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

"Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
"There are trivial truths and the great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true." ~ Niels Bohr

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.

The name of God cannot be spoken. All names of God only point to the True Name of God. God represents The Ultimate Reality, or what is True. Truth is like the name of God. To Keep this name "Hallowed" is to understand how this name is uncreated and set apart. "I Am That I Am" or "That Which Is" or "The Way Things Are" is the name that Moses gave God.

Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.

God is sovereign over everything, God embodies the state of things. God's will is what is done. For God's will to be done "on earth as it is in heaven" means that we are to accept God's Ultimate Reign over All Things, and submit to reality.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.

God sustains us, and forgives us for the mistakes that we make in order that we can move past these things in life. We in return forgive others who offend us.

And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

With acceptance of God, which is Truth and Reality, no falsehood or untruth can compare in value. God is King over all things, The One to whom glory truly belongs. The word "Amen" means "So be it", and so it is. The lord's prayer condenses the message of Jesus in a short prayer.

The Lord's Prayer is about accepting reality, and forgiving people for falling short, as we ourselves fall short all the time.

Our lager,Which art in barrels, Hallowed be Thy drink, Thy will be drunk, (I will be drunk), At home as I am in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, And forgive us our spillages, As we forgive those who spill against us, And lead us not to incarceration, But deliver us from hangovers, For thine is the beer, The bitter and the lager, Forever and ever, Barmen.

a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah

May you never lie, steal, cheat or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in each other's arms.
If you must steal, steal kisses.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink with us, your friends.

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven!
