An expanded Lord’s Prayer

Updated: Oct 30

Our Father,


insuperable in creation,

sweet in love,

rich in every heritage!


In Heaven,


a mirror of eternity,

the crown of joy,

the treasure of eternal salvation!


Hallowed be Your name,


that it be like honey upon the tongue,

a harp unto our ears,

a devotion in our hearts!


Your kingdom come,


joyfully, without perversion;

quietly, without sorrow;

safely, beyond possibility to lose it!


Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven,


that we hate whatever displeases You;

love what You love;

and fulfill all things that are pleasing to You!


Give us this day our daily bread,


the bread of

knowledge,

repentance,

pardon,

and every need of our bodies.


Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us;


forgive us our sins against You, against our fellow creatures, and against ourselves, which we have multiplied either through the commission of wrongs or the omission to do the good we ought to do,

as we forgive all who have despised or offended us

by word or deed,

by giving or taking away from us,

spiritually or temporally.


And lead us not into temptation,


of the world,

the flesh,

or the devil:


But deliver us from evil,


both temporal and spiritual,

and from all sorrows in time and eternity. Amen.
