Christian Flavored... When you pray the Our Father... what do you think and feel?
I'm curious what ~others~ think when they say this prayer, but I want to describe what ~I~ think (in my own words) and then ~feel~ into it, when I say them, based on much study, reflection and prayer about how I ~should~ be saying it...
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
~I beg you, my Lord, come back and make right, the wrongs in this world~
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
~Please, guide me to live as ~you~ would have me live, to give freely of myself, to those in need, of what I have to spare, to forgive and love others, without a judgmental heart, and let not my selfish mind guide my actions, as I learn to submit to Your Will for my life~
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
~I trust that You will make it so, for ever, and ever~
~but ~Please~, let it be sooner, rather than later~
~there's so many ~hurting~ in this world who need You~
this sounds like a good interpretation to me. I think about other scripture that we read alot. Like the 23rd psalm. I get that a lot more now that I raise sheep. sheep are stupid. they are always wandering around and getting into things and they bump each other out of the way for food eventhough there is more in a different trough 3 feet awy. It's hard to think of myself as being like that. sheep are dependent on me as their shepherd and they are not ashamed of that. It's hard to try to be a sheep and trust that God will give me green pastures and still waters.
