The prayer Jesus taught us - new words

Luke 11:1–13



Divine Source of Love and Life,
Holy is your unspeakable name.

May your Way of Love resound through earth,
heaven in our midst.

All we need to live and thrive
we receive from you, Creator;

forgive us when we turn away,
as we forgive each other.

Keep us on the path of Wisdom,
away from wicked tyranny;

Spirit ever breathe through us,
empower us with hope.

From you, through you and in you,
are all things, now and always;
to you be all honour and praise.

Amen.



Read a reflection Sarah offered on this passage from Luke, using this prayer-poem, in Falkirk, Scotland, 24 July 2016.

  4. We have the original by heart, so it's easy to slip into saying without meaning. Thanks for a new way to say it.
