The Lord's Prayer

As found in Matthew 6:9-13



Our Father

You, Lord, are a personal God to each and every one of Your children, including me.

Which art in heaven,

You are High and Lifted up; You are far above mortal man.

Hallowed be Thy name.

Your name is holy, and not to be taken lightly.

Thy kingdom come;

Lord, please hasten Your coming; but until then, reign in my heart as King and Lord.

Thy will be done, in as earth as it is in heaven.

Please help me to follow in Your will and let my life exemplify Christ.

Give us this day our daily bread.

Provide me with both physical and spiritual needs.

And forgive us our debts,

Lord, forgive me and cover me with Your mercy and grace.
(Note: It is important to specify your sins as you seek forgiveness. You can always ask God to bring to your remembrance unconfessed sins.)

As we forgive our debtors.

As You forgive me, help me to have the same mind as You and forgive others also.

And lead us not into temptation,

Please help me further to follow after Your will so that I may avoid temptation.

But deliver us from evil:

Provide me with a way of escape from the temptation which I encounter.

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever.

You are able to keep me from falling, for all power is Yours both in heaven and in earth.

Amen.

I sincerely mean every word that I have said: so be it.
