Our Father In Heaven (click on the link to listen to a recording) by David Ker
Our Father in heaven, your name is holy. We’re waiting for your kingdom to come to the earth.
Our Father in heaven, your name is holy. We’re waiting to see your will done on the earth.
Let your kingdom come to the earth. Let your will be done in this place. Reign as king, Holy Father. We are waiting.
Reign as king, Holy Father. We are waiting for you.
Forever and ever the kingdom is yours. Forever and ever the power is yours. Forever and ever the glory is yours.Amen. Amen. Amen.
- When you recite the Lord’s prayer, how do you do it?
- Do you use “who art” and “hallowed” and “trespasses”? Or do you use a more contemporary version?
- Was Jesus’ asking us to “pray this prayer” or “pray like this prayer”?
