The Lord’s Prayer after the resurrection

Our Lord Jesus Who’s now in Heaven, Holy is Your Name in Which we pray. Let Your Kingdom come! Let Your will be done on earth as happens in Heaven. Give us this day Your living Bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who cross the line with us. Lead us not into terrible trials, but deliver us from evil, for the Kingdom of God is Yours! And the power of God is Yours. And the glory of God is Yours – now and forever – in You, in us. May we all be One in Jesus’ Name. ©2014, Mary Harwell Sayler .
