The Lord’s Prayer, reimagined

Spirit of Life, Ground of all Being, Our Mother and Father,
Who are throughout the whole cosmos
Holy are All Your Names
Holy are we, whoever and however we are
Your realm of love and justice come
Through the actions of our hands
And the desires of our hearts
Open our hearts to those who live at the edges, in the shadows
Let us welcome them in love
And practise compassion towards all beings
Give us what will nourish us today
Let us be grateful for everything we have
Forgive us when we miss the mark
As we forgive those who cross our boundaries
Give us the strength to be honest with ourselves
In trying times, guide us on the right paths
As we learn to trust our inner wisdom
And in times of joy and sorrow
May we keep turning towards the Light of Love
For You are the Source of all that has been, is now and will be,
Let us honour your Indwelling Presence for evermore.
