The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father

  • not just your father
  • not just my father
  • not just his or her father

but Our Father

  • the father of creation
  • of people we like and love
  • of people we don’t like
  • even the father of bullies
  • even the father of those who don’t acknowledge him

Who art in Heaven

  • God our Father is there
  • where is heaven
  • perhaps it is very near by and
  • he is watching over us

Hallowed be thy name

  • Our Father is Holy
  • Our Father is Good
  • Our Father is to be honored

Thy kingdom come Thy Will be done

  • not my world
  • not my will
  • my life is in your hands Father

On Earth as it is in Heaven

  • all needs are met for all who know and love the Lord

Give us this day our daily bread

  • give us what we need
  • the love of others
  • compassion
  • safety
  • food for body and soul

and Forgive us our Trespasses

  • we are human
  • unholy
  • forgive us our sins

As We forgive those who trespass against us

  • let us not hang on to those things that have hurt us
  • let us remember “those” are also human

Lead us not into temptation

  • help us be mindful of the things that keep us from you
  • turn our heads from snares and traps

butĀ deliver us from evil

  • when we our struggling,
  • hold our hand and carry us away from the evil that surrounds

Amen
