Prayers to protect us and to encourage us

Prayers and Churches

This is the Norwegian Table Prayer 
passed on to us by my friend Gene Nelson, Sun City West, AZ.

I Jesu navn går vi til bords
å spise, drikke på ditt ord. 
Deg, Gud til ære, oss til gavn, 
Så får vi mat i Jesu navn. 

In Jesus' name to the table we go
To eat and drink according to His word.
To God the honor, us the gain,
So we have food in Jesus' name.

Heddal Stave Church

The church is a triple nave stave church and is Norway's largest stave church.
It was constructed at the beginning of the 13th century. 
There is a great legend attached to the church in that it was built in three days. 

Lord's Prayer

Fader vår, du som er i himmelen!
La ditt navn holdes hellig. La ditt rike komme. La din vilje skje på jorden                                                                                           
 som i himmelen                     
Gi oss i dag vårt daglige brød.
Forlat oss vår skyld,
som vi og forlater våre skyldnere.

Led oss ikke inn i fristelse,
men frels oss fra det onde
For riket er ditt, og makten og æren i evighet.


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. 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, power and glory.
