“Modern Paraphrase of Lord’s Prayer” Garrett Epp God, who gives birth to the world, who gives us breath; fill us with your light and help us to usher in your reign of love, justice, and peace here on earth. Tune us to the harmony of the heavens; teach us to sing your name.
Grant us wisdom, hope, and compassion for all living things, and feed us what we need each day. Free us from what binds us, as we release others from guilt and shame. Help us to focus on what is good, and to do what is right. Teach us how to love. Renew our hearts, our minds, our strength, and make us wholly yours. Amen.
