The Lord's Prayer in Paraphrase

Here’s another version of the prayer Jesus taught his disciples (Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4).  It comes from the Rex AE Hunt website.

The Lord’s Prayer
(based on Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4)

O God, you love us like a good parent,
and are present in every aspect of our existence

May your nature become known and respected by all
May your joy, peace, wholeness and justice
be the reality for everyone
as we live by the Jesus Way

Give us all that we really need to live every day for you
And forgive us our failures as we forgive others for their failures
Keep us from doing those things which are not of you,
and cause us always to be centred on your love

For you are the true reality in this our now,
and in all our future.
In the Jesus Way we pray.
