A Paraphrase of Jesus’ Prayer

Source of all life,
Divine Mother and Father of us all,
may your Name be held sacred by all creation.
May your kingdom and your will be lived here,
(as it is lived by that great communion of saints who have entered your Household!)
I ask that what we need – what we¬†really need –
would be provided.
I ask that you would forgive me my sins – and –
(God!) help me to forgive the people who have sinned against me.
Keep me from that which would break me completely.
Help me to recognize – and stand in the face of – evil…
knowing that you hold me safe.

Yours is the kingdom.
Yours is the power.
Yours is the glory.

Not mine. Yours.

Yesterday. Today. Forever.

Please… let it be so.
