I have been preparing for doing creche for our pre schoolers during the service tomorrow. We are using the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. It is brilliant. I don’t know about you but sometimes the familiar can become tired……but this prayer to our Father God is refreshing. It is the Lord’s Prayer. Read it and see.
We want to know you.
And be close to you.
Please show us how.
Make everything in the world right again.
And in our hearts, too.
Do what is best—just like you do in heaven,
And please do it down here, too.
Please give us everything we need today.
Forgive us for doing wrong, for hurting you.
Forgive us just as we forgive other people
when they hurt us.
Rescue us! We need you.
We don’t want to keep running away
and hiding from you.
Keep us safe from our enemies.
You’re strong, God.
You can do whatever you want.
You are in charge.
Now and forever and for always!
We think you’re great!
Yes we do!
