Probably the most familiar prayer for Christians is the Lord’s Prayer. I don’t remember anyone teaching it to me. It’s just something I picked up. Pretty sure that’s how my girls learned it too.
Week after week hearing it every Sunday in Church has helped them commit it to memory. About the only variation in the prayer is some will say “trespass” while others say the “debts”.
I learned it as trespass but I remember a few large family gatherings growing up where we’d say The Lord’s Prayer before the meal. Someone would say, “are we saying trespass or debts?” A decision was made but it seemed that someone would always goof it up anyway.
The Message is my favorite version of the Bible mainly because it’s easier for me to understand.
Today I thought I’d share Matthew 6:9-13 out of it. It’s The Lord’s Prayer in a way I had never read before.
Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
Yes. Yes. Yes.
It’s interesting to read a different take on it. What do you think of this version?
As I approach the one year anniversary of this blog there is no doubt in my mind that I want to continue blogging. It’s been too much fun! So I paid for another year for the domain name and web hosting.
Now, I’m thinking about how to grow and evolve in year number two.
A podcast is already in the works. I have the theme music picked out, show intro and outro written, and a home studio recording set up put together. There are just a few more details to figure out… but I hope to launch the podcast in the first quarter of 2015.
Since the podcast is a ways off… I wanted to to do something quick, easy, and that could have an impact right away. That led me to music and quotes… two things I love.
If you follow the buy modafinil bulk powder for this blog you might have already noticed it. I’ve begun to share a Christian music video and a quote each day. If you haven’t liked the page go ahead and do it buy modafinil bali so you don’t miss out!
The right music or quote has been known to lift my spirits. My hope is that each will give you a little mental boost to help get you through the day and maybe put a smile on your face.
Facebook doesn’t show users all posts made by the pages they like so every video or quote might not make it into your newsfeed. Just know that if you’re looking for a little positivity you can click to the page and find it there waiting for you.
That’s just the start of things for this blog in year two! I’m excited for a few of the other ideas I have… and for the ones that haven’t even been thought of yet?
What one music video and quote would you share to brighten someone’s day? Leave a comment and let me know. I just might use them in the future.
