The Lord's Prayer

Here is a responsive version of the Lord’s Prayer from a Dominican Sisters Retreat in Great Bend Kansas. It was posted on the Liddington View.

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

Our Father                                           
Our Mother
Who art in heaven                                
Who are in all the earth
Hallowed be they name                        
Holy is your truth
Thy kingdom come                              
May your wisdom come
Thy will be done, on earth                    
Your circle be one uniting
as it is in heaven                                  
heaven and earth
Give us this day our daily bread           
Give us today a nurturing spirit
And forgive us our trespasses  
Heal through us as we
as we forgive those who trespass against us    
ourselves are healed
Lead us not into temptation                   
Lead us into Fullness of life
But deliver us from evil            
And liberate all that is good
For thine is the Kingdom,                     
For the Wisdom,
the power and the glory                        
Presence and the Goodness are Yours
Now and forever
Amen.
