The Lord's Prayer: Abba, Our God

Here is a version of the Lord’s Prayer from the 1980 Alternative Service Book.

The Lord’s Prayer: Abba, Our God
(inspired by Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4)

Abba, our God, whom the heavens disclose,
may your name be held holy,
your authority come.
May your longing be fulfilled as in heaven,
so on earth
Give us today the bread of tomorrow,
and cancel our debts
as we have already forgiven our debtors.
Do not draw us in to sinful enticement,
but set us free from the grip of evil;
for authority and power and glory
are yours alone, forever.

~ from the 1980 Alternative Service Book (1980), Church of England.
