“cause us to always be centered on your love” (Lord’s Prayer for June 17)
Here’s the version of the Lord’s Prayer we used during last Sunday’s worship. I also added to the “fresh versions of the Lord’s Prayer” page (see the button right below the blog banner). Check that page out; we’ve built up a rich little collection of Lord’s Prayers, including this one.
O God, you love us like a good parent, and are present in every aspect of our existence. May your nature become known and respected by all. May your joy, peace, wholeness and justice be the reality for everyone as we live by the Jesus Way. Give us all that we really need to live every day for you. And forgive us our failures as we forgive others for their failures. Keep us from doing those things which are not of you, and cause us always to be centered on your love. For you are the true reality in this our now, and in all our future. In the Jesus Way we pray. Amen. (David Sorrill)
