Daily Prayer

This is a rhyming version of the familiar Lord’s Prayer. See if it makes you think about the words and meanings of the original a little differently.

Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer

Oh, heavenly Father, King of Kings,
We lift our voice in prayer.
We worship You and thank You that
We’re in Your loving care.
We’re longing for Your reign to start
Your will to rule on earth.
Your just and righteous reign will give
Our weary hearts rebirth.
We thank You for provision and
Your Word as daily bread.
You give us food and scripture so
Our flesh and souls are fed.
Forgive us, Lord, for all our sins
And help us to forgive
Whoever may do wrong to us.
We can’t let grudges live.
And lead us, Lord, along the paths
Of righteousness with you,
Away from all temptation and
Away from evil, too.
Protect us from the evil one
Who wants to take our souls
And help us walk Your righteous path
And to fulfill Your goals.
For You have all authority,
And power to the end.
The glory all belongs to You.
We love you, God. Amen.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
