I recently found this version of the Lord’s Prayer and felt it was so good and understandable. If you think so too perhaps cut it out and put it with whatever else you use for your daily devotions. It is said “a change is as good as a rest” – try it.
If you don’t like the change I’m afraid “a rest” from praying isn’t on offer!
THE LORD’S PRAYER Janet Fletcher
Holy and Eternal God, Your Name is precious,
May heaven and earth be one, held in loved and peace.
May all our daily needs be met,
In our straying and wrong-doing pour upon us your forgiveness, and enlarge our hearts to bring forgiveness to those who cause us pain and hurt.
Lead us always to walk in the light of you love and away from all that tempts us.
For you are the God of all creation, throughout this and every age. Amen
