Love is patient and is kind.

Love is not jealous or boastful or full of pride.

Love does not act inappropriately or rudely and does not want its own way.

Love is not irritable or easily provoked and lets things go when wronged.

Love is not glad when wrong things are done but has joy in truth and goodness.

Love never gives up through all things, keeps believing through all things, stays hopeful through all things and endures all things.

Love lasts forever.

 

A Prayer to our Father (Hebrew) Matthew

Our Father in heaven

May your name be sanctified

May your kingdom be blessed

Your will shall be done in heaven and on earth

Give us our bread continually

Forgive us the debt of our sins as we forgive the debt of those who sin against us

Do not bring us into the hands of a test

Protect us from all evil. Amen
