Translated to English words

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
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.
For Thine is the Kingdom
and the power
and the glory forever.

Prayer for Wisdom
O Jesus, wisdom of the Father,
Grant me wisdom, That I may,
at all times, think, speak and do
before Thee that which is good in Thy sight.
And save me from evil thoughts, words and deeds.
Have mercy upon Thy creatures,
and upon me, great sinner that I am.

Before Travelling/Sleeping
O Christ, Guardian of all Creatures,
Let Thy right hand
be a shadow over me day and night,
Tarrying at home and travelling,
Sleeping and rising,
That I may never fail.
Have mercy upon Thy creatures,
And upon me great sinner that I am.

Dear Father, Beneficient God.
Glory to You, forever.

which the Lord has provided for us.
Blessed be the Lord in His gifts.
