Prayer: Father in Heaven

Here’s a prayer inspired by the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4)

Prayer
(inspired by Matthew 6:9-13, Luke 11:2-4)

Father in heaven,
in your goodness
you pour out on your people all that they need,
and satisfy those who persist in prayer.
Make us bold in asking,
thankful in receiving,
tireless in seeking,
and joyful in finding,
that we may always proclaim your coming kingdom
and do your will on earth as in heaven. Amen.
