These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

OUR FATHER ~ Matthew 6:9-13 NAS

* Our Father,

Perfect Creator of us all, Who knew each of us intimately before the foundation of the world; Who was and is and is to come; the Great 'I AM' ~

* Who Art In Heaven,

Above us; around us; behind us; before us; timelessly with us ~

* Hallowed Be Thy Name,

A Name above, there is no other.  As Your adopted sons and daughters - that same Name by which we are now known and forever sealed ~

* Thy Kingdom Come,

The garden Life that as You saw, proclaimed that it was GOOD!  Where no pain; no shame; no sorrow dwells ~

* Thy Will Be Done,

In Your ever-seeing; ever-knowing; ever-present Perfect Way, the Way which we can, without hesitation, entrust our very lives ~

* On Earth As It Is In Heaven,

Letting the unseen be seen with eyes that see and ears that hear, all that You would have for us; all for GOOD and Your perfect purpose ~

* Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread,

Blessed manna to fill us for today yet trust in You for every tomorrow ~

* Forgive Us Our Trespasses,

As we seek Your Face with whole heart, soul and mind; desiring to walk Your righteous path in our imperfect human way ~

* As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us,

For we remember that our fight is not against flesh and blood, but instead against the evil one who worms his way into our very thought and deed ~

* Lead Us Not Into Temptation,

For, although the heart may be willing, the flesh is so often weak ~

* But Deliver Us From Evil,

Being our strength when we are weak, that we may flee as we should from the evil one; being guarded in the safety of Your Wing ~

* For Thine Is The Kingdom,

* The Power,

* And The Glory,

All these things our Savior died to make ours when in our heart we believe and with our mouths confess that Jesus is Lord ~

(and that ...)

* Forever and ever, AMEN!

What strikes me and which I have come to love about the Lord's prayer, is the very introduction: "Our Father...!" Jesus introduced God with a relationship tag--a Father. The rest of the prayer as you have insightfully laid out, flows freely--tension-free. We are addressing the Father.
