Our Father

Last week at church, the minister mentioned looking at the Our Father prayer a little differently. Throughout the prayer, there is an implied "you" but by adding the "you" the prayer has a whole new meaning. Instead of asking for God's protection we are confirming that God does protect. It looks like this:

Our Father, who art in Heaven.
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done,
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
You give us this day our daily bread
and you forgive us our trespasses as
we forgive those who trespass against us.
You lead us not into temptation and
You deliver us from evil.
