Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
We proclaim that we are all children of God. There is no other like You, God. You are the Creator, the life-giver and the life-sustainer. You are good, and as a community, we take our place under our true identity of being Your children.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
In heaven, there is no sickness. In heaven, there is perfect health.
In heaven, there is no lack. In heaven, there is abundance.
In heaven, there are no broken relationships. In heaven, there is perfect peace.
In heaven there is no confusion or ignorance. In heaven, there is perfect understanding.
In heaven, all is as it is perfectly supposed to be. All is whole again, there is shalom.
As Your children, we proclaim Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Guide and encourage us to better understand Your ways, God. Enable us to nurture Your Kingdom ways in our own lives. As Your children, empower us to take our place in bringing Your Kingdom.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Our Father, You alone sustain us in every way, and we place our lives solely in Your care. We will not place our allegiance or our trust in any other. No matter the circumstance we find ourselves in, we trust in Your loving kindness.
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
We confess that we all cause harm to others. Whether this is intentional or not, enable us to fully comprehend and feel how our thoughts and actions affect others. Inspire us to always seek to mirror Your loving kindness and to do good to everyone. As we harm others, we ask Your forgiveness as we learn from our mistakes and turn away from them. Wherever possible, lead us to right these wrongs.
Whether intentional or not, as others cause harm to us, give us the ability to forgive, to hold no grudges, but to see each other as children of God and to love them.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Let us always follow You, ever so closely. Keep us close to Your strength, Your protection, Your provision, Your wisdom and loving kindness. Keep us close by Your side and away from all temptations that would take us away from You.
