I wanted to road test a reworked version of the Lord’s Prayer.

Sorry, I don’t actually know what that means.
But I did hear a young person say it once.
Our Ultimate Reality, beyond time and space
Our Intimate Reality, source of love and meaning
In whom we live and move and have our being
May your Reality become our reality
May your Will and Desire become our will and desire
May our essential needs be satisfied
Forgive us our incessant desires
As we forgive those whose incessant desires intrude on our essential needs
May we not be pushed beyond the limits of our endurance
And save us being drawn into self-destructive ways
You weave together the very fabric of creation
You invite us to be willing threads of meaning
Yours is the glory and wonder
Now and forever
