Prayer: Our Father

Here’s another re-working of the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4).  It was written by Rebekah Long.

Our Father
(based on Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4)

Our father who dwells in the heavens and on the earth, you are holy.

May heaven be a greater present reality here on earth,
And may we choose to join you in making that happen.

Provide us today with the things that you think we need,
And may we not take for granted that which you have already provided.

Forgive us when we don’t live as you intend,
And may we be ready for forgive others when they don’t live as we intend.

Guide us in your wisdom away from the things that would distort us,
And restore the parts in us that are already distorted.

You are goodness, beauty and truth.
May your love always rule.  Amen.
