The Lord's Prayer: A Paraphrase


You know the end from the beginning. 
You are perfect; complete goodness. 
I will step aside for you, 
relinquish my demand for control. 
I will do what you say, here, 
like creation does on earth 
and the angels do in heaven. 

Thank you for your promise 
to provide what I need today. 
Help me recognize it
and receive it gratefully. 

I'm so grateful for your forgiveness. 
I will pay it forward 
to those who have hurt me. 

We align with you, 
submit to you, 
honor you.
