Jesus said, “When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. ‘Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not bring us to the time of trial,
But rescue us from the evil one.
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Matthew 6:7-15
I was given the thought by someone a long time ago:
Imagine that prayer – always being said, always being heard. A family prayer rolling around this world as this world rolls. Connecting. All of One. All in One.
And as I read these verses, thought of those words, breathed our family prayer – He breathed His prayer – His Family prayer – in return:
My Child of mine, blessed is Your Name.
Our kingdom Yours today right now
In heaven and earth the same.
Share this day our daily bread
And know You’re forgiven so forgive Yourself.
Because You’re safe in me if You allow –
No matter the test no matter the trial.
Come close my Love
And let me allow.
His prayer for each of us, always being said, so often never heard. A Family prayer rolling around this world as He rolls this world. Connecting. All of One. All in One. If we allow.
