A Meditation on the Lord's Prayer





Cuthbert cross

A Meditation on the Lord's Prayer
by Judy Dinnen

From 'Bare Feet and Buttercups'
A Wild Goose Publication  


Our Father in heaven

Father, I sense you in busyness, creativity and frustrations of the workplace, in laughter and tears of the family home, in conflict and peace-making in the world, in the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset, Open my eyes to glimpses of your heaven each day.  


Hallowed be your name

You call my name, you call me to worship - to sing and dance, to shout and proclaim, to give praise to your name.  


Your kingdom come

You call me to be your servant, to be your love in the world, to further your kingdom on earth. Show me, guide me, how to serve you.  


Your will be done

That is my daily prayer. What is your will for your people? What is your will for your world? What is your will for me? I listen for your voice; show me the path to follow.  


On earth as in heaven

May I live your will in the small daily acts of living and in the way I respond to your call. May I work your will here and now on earth, with a vision of your glory, the inspiration of your kingdom before me  


Give us this day our daily bread

You provide for my needs, my food and shelter; give me strength to serve you, wisdom and knowledge so I may share your gospel, love and compassion so I may live and work your good news.  


Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us

Forgive me for those days and years, those perplexing times, when I failed to respond to your call; for times when I doubt your power to equip me for the task; for holding back when I should step forward; for remaining silent when I should speak. May I forgive those who hurt me, who doubt me, or overlook me.  


Lead us not into temptation

May I not be tempted to divorce action from prayer, nor prayer from action. May I not give way to complacency, nor undue fear, to arrogance, nor timidity. Grant me patience to test my sense of calling with humility and the wisdom of others. May I proceed with deep honesty and integrity.  


But deliver us from evil

Help me to keep to the path that leads to you, and to avoid patterns of living that keep me from you.  


For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever

As your servant, may I partake in the growth of your kingdom; may I sing and work to your praise and glory.  

Father and Mother in heaven, let your power work in my life.  

Amen
