Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey



Hi God!

In February the Explorers explored the Lord's Prayer and on they shared their thoughts with the congregation.  They realised that, although they said it every week, they did not know what it all meant. Once they had worked it out, they decided to write it in simple language and rearrange it a little so it made sense to them. Since prayer is a conversation with God, they wanted to sound friendly. Here is their version.

 

"Dear God - wow, even your name is special
You are everywhere and everything belongs to you
Please make sure we have what we need to survive
We will try to live the way you want us to
 but please forgive us when we get it wrong
We will forgive people for what they have done wrong
Help us to make the right choices and keep us safe
You are the ruler of the world, and you are in charge.
Thank you always and forever.
I agree, the end."

 

Now they understand what they are saying, but they like the traditional version used in church because it is special and it joins them with friends across the world when they say it.
