The Lord’s Prayer
4 versions based on Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:1-4
(Also see sermon “Teach Us To Pray” from Sunday, July 24, 2016
Ground of all being,
Mother of life, Father of the universe,
Your name is sacred, beyond speaking.
May we know your presence,
may your longings be our longings in heart and in action.
May there be food for the human family today
and for the whole earth community.
Forgive us the falseness of what we have done
as we forgive those who are untrue to us.
Do not forsake us in our time of conflict
but lead us into new beginnings.
For the light of life, the vitality of life,
and the glory of life are yours now and for ever. Amen.
~The Casa del Sol Prayer of Jesus, The Rev. Dr. J. Philip Newell
