Congregational Paraphrases of the Lord’s Prayer

Karyn

“Our Steadfast and Loving Parent,
may your many names be made holy.  
May your realm be created and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us what we need to get through this day;
 and forgive us when we stray from the path you have set for us,
 as we must have the grace to forgive those who overstep their own boundaries.  
Help us to resist worldly temptations, but keep us from evil.

This Bible study will dive into a book of the Bible that is cited no fewer than 76 times in the Common Lectionary – the most of any Old Testament book – and a book which early Church Fathers like Gregory of Nyssa and St.
