Our Father, Part III

Yet another take on the Lord’s Prayer, this one from the first person volitional perspective of “I want.”

Dear Divine Dad,

I want your name to be glorified.

I want to live in your kingdom,
where our emotions, reasons, intentions and actions
are all aligned with you and your purposes.

I want you to supply all my needs,
including the need to trust that you’ll provide.

I want you to forgive me, even as I want to forgive others
so you can lead me to become happy, healthy, and holy
rather than opening the door to the evil one.

Because I only want the dominion, power and glory
that comes from you, and is submitted to you
because that is the only kind that lasts.

Please. Make it so!
