Teach us how to pray

During the Last Sunday Thing last Sunday a small group of people looked at the Lord's Prayer. They wrote simple sentences to say what it menat to them. During the short service at the end two of them read the version of the prayer which they had created.

Our Father in heaven hallowed be your name.
Holy Father we are your children and we worship and love you above all others.

Your Kingdom come.
We welcome your presence in our lives.

Your will be done on earth as in Heaven.
May we follow your example and try to reflect your will.

Give us today our daily bread.
Thank you for all that you give us and help us to share with others.

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
We have done wrong, you forgave us, we must learn to forgive others.

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
Dear Father lead us away from doing wrong and show us the right way.

For the Kingdom the power and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.
Yesterday today and always, so be it.
