The Lord’s Prayer
Perhaps this is an awkward question – but you can keep your response to yourself, and God. “Do you sometimes find you are or have been on auto-pilot when saying the Lord’s Prayer?”
If you really have never been in such a situation but have always paid full attention to every phrase as you offered this prayer, then you are in a very small minority.
It is to help the majority that it is good occasionally to use a different form of words from those with which we are most familiar; our hymnbook, Rejoice and Sing, offers us a modern form as well as the traditional words inside the back cover – would it be good to ring the changes more often?
At our recent Synod we were introduced to a number of other versions and here is one from an Irish woman, Lala Winkley.
God, lover of us all, most holy one.
Help us to respond to you.
To create what you want for us here on earth.
Give us today enough for our needs.
Forgive our weak and deliberate offences,
just as we must forgive others when they hurt us.
Help us to resist evil and do what is good.
For we are yours, endowed with your power
to make our world whole.
