20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. 22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.(KJV)

1. Our Father, Thou in heaven above, 
Who biddest us to dwell in love, 
As brethren of one family, 
To cry in every need to Thee, 
Teach us no thoughtless word to say, 
But from our inmost heart to pray. 

2. Thy name be hallowed. Help us, Lord, 
In purity to keep Thy Word, 
That to the glory of thy name 
We walk before Thee free from blame. 
Let no false doctrine us pervert; 
All poor, deluded souls convert. 

3. Thy kingdom come. Thine let it be 
In time and in eternity. 
Let Thy good Spirit e’er be nigh 
Our hearts with graces to supply. 
Break Satan’s power, defeat his rage; 
Preserve Thy Church from age to age. 

4. Thy gracious will on earth be done 
As ’tis in heaven before Thy throne; 
Obedience in our weal and woe 
And patience in all grief bestow. 
Curb flesh and blood and every ill 
That sets itself against Thy will. 

5. Give us this day our daily bread 
And let us all be clothed and fed. 
From war and strife be our Defense, 
From famine and from pestilence, 
That we may live in godly peace, 
Free from all care and avarice. 

6. Forgive our sins, Lord, we implore, 
Remove from us their burden sore, 
As we their trespasses forgive 
Who by offenses us do grieve. 
Thus let us dwell in charity 
And serve our brother willingly. 

7. Into temptation lead us not. 
When evil foes against us plot 
And vex our souls on every hand, 
Oh, give us strength that we may stand 
Firm in the faith, a well-armed host, 
Through comfort of the Holy Ghost! 

8. From evil, Lord, deliver us; 
The times and days are perilous. 
Redeem us from eternal death, 
And when we yield our dying breath, 
Console us, grant us calm release, 
And take our souls to Thee in peace. 

9. Amen, that is, So shall it be. 
Confirm our faith and hope in Thee 
That we may doubt not, but believe 
What here we ask we shall receive. 
Thus in Thy name and at Thy word 
We say: Amen. Oh, hear us, Lord! Amen.
