v18.

“…But I promise you that not even a period or a comma will ever disappear from the [Mosaic] Law.”

v19.

“If you reject even the least important command in the Law and teach others to do the same, you will be the least important person in the kingdom of heaven.

But if you obey and teach others its command, you will have an important place in the kingdom.”

Our Father in heaven,

help us to honor

your name.

Come and set up

your kingdom,

so that everyone on earth

will obey you

as you are obeyed in heaven.

Give us our food for today.

Forgive us for doing wrong

as we forgive others.

Keep us from being tempted

and protect us from evil
