Praying As Our Lord Taught ...

 Courtesy of The Most Rev. Frank T. Griswold's book, Praying Our Days: A Guide and Companion
    
 Eternal Spirit,

                          Earth-maker, Pain-bearer, Life-giver,

                          Source of all that is and that shall be,

                          Father and Mother of us all,

                          Loving God, in whom is heaven:

                          The hallowing of your name echo through the universe!

                          The way of your justice be followed by the peoples of the world!

                          Your heavenly will be done by all created beings!

                          Your commonwealth of peace and freedom sustain our hopes and come on earth.

                          With the bread we need for today, feed us.

                          In the hurts we absorb from one another, forgive us.

                          In times of temptation and test, strengthen us.

                          From trials too great to endure, spare us.

                          From the grip of all this is evil, free us.

                          For you reign in the glory of the power that is love, now and forever. Amen.


                              (A paraphrase of the Lord's Prayer from A New Zealand Prayer Book.)
