The Lord’s Prayer in bite size bits

“Our Father,” Jesus invites us to be sons & daughters of God.

“In Heaven,” a holy & pure dimension of existence beyond the physical realm.

“Hallowed be Your Name,” may His name release holy astonishment in all who hear it.

“Your kingdom come,” may the government of God be revealed & established.

“Your will be done,” may we lay down our resistance to what God wants.

“On earth as it is in Heaven,” Heaven is the example of how to live on earth.

“Give us today our daily bread,” one day at a time.

“And forgive us out trespasses,” Lord, have mercy on us.

“As we forgive those who trespass against us,” show us the same level of forgiveness that we show to others.

“Lead us not into temptation,” steer us clear of our wrongful desires, cravings, & compulsions.

“But deliver us from evil,” set us free from sinful thoughts, words, & behaviors.

“For Your’s is the kingdom,” our loyalty belongs to God.

“And the power & the glory forever,” all power & glory belong eternally to God.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
