The Lord’s Prayer

July 24’s New Testament reading includes the Lord’s Prayer, so a paraphrase may be appropriate:

O most Compassionate Life-giver,
may we honour and praise you;
May we work with you to establish your new order of justice peace and love;
Give us what we need for growth,
And help us, through forgiving others, to accept forgiveness.
Strengthen us in the time of testing, that we may resist all evil,
For all tenderness, strength and love are yours, now and forever.
Amen.

Bill Wallace, Aotearoa/New Zealand

Another version of the Lord’s Prayer, together with this paraphrase, may be found on our Prayers  page.
