The Lord's Prayer
Our wonderful, faithful Father eternally enthroned in Heaven,
holy and matchless is Your name.
Let your kingdom come NOW; tomorrow might be too late for somebody.
Let all the universe, including me, embrace its eternal excellence, glorious grace and trenchant truth.
Let your loving will be done on Earth; please work your best plan for our planet now
just as your will is done, always, in Heaven, the only safe haven.
We need food again today, lest we die outside your grace.
Have mercy and forgive us our sins and many wrongdoings against you and others.
Forgive us in the same way that we have freely forgiven others (GULP).
Keep us near you, insulated from the hurtful harvest of mankind's unkindness.
For your's is the consummate Kingdom, the absolute Power, the incredible Glory, and dazzling Beauty
from eternity past, now, and for ever.
(humbly adapted from the model of Jesus, as recorded in Matthew 6:9-13)
