The Lord's Prayer (Extended Version)
Our Father in heaven
Everlasting Father of the fatherless,
Heaven is Your throne and the earth is Your footstool.
The heavens declare Your glory,
and the sky above proclaims Your handiwork.
O Father in Heaven,
Hallowed be Your Name
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
may Your Name be praised and be great among the nations!
Let Your glory be over all the earth!
Let heaven and earth praise You,
the seas and everything that moves in them.
Your Kingdom come
May all the ends of the earth remember and turn to You,
and all the families of the nations worship before You.
For kingship belongs to You;
You rule over the nations.
You are the strength of Your people -
the saving refuge of Your anointed!
Oh, save Your people and bless Your heritage!
Be our Shepherd and carry us forever!
You are our King, O God!
You are the King of all the earth!
Your throne is forever and ever.
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Make us to know Your ways, O Lord.
Teach us Your paths.
Teach us to do Your will!
Let your good Spirit lead us on level ground!
Not our will, but Yours be done!
Give us this day our daily bread.
You, our God, will supply every need of ours
according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Give us neither poverty nor riches;
feed us with the food that is needful for us,
lest we be full and deny You and say, “Who is the Lord?”
or lest we be poor and steal and profane the name of our God.
Satisfy us with righteousness.
Forgive us our debts as we have forgiven our debtors.
We confess our iniquity; we are sorry for our sin.
Have mercy on us, O God.
Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity,
and cleanse us from our sin!
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon our guilt for it is great.
Lead us not into temptation…but Deliver us from Evil
We do not ask that you take us out of the world,
but that you keep us from the evil one.
Restore us; let Your face shine, that we may be saved.
For the glory of Your name, deliver us and atone for our sins,
for Your name’s sake!
You are our steadfast love and our fortress,
our stronghold and our deliverer!
For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever and ever.
