Rosy Hayes, one of the confirmands this year, wrote her own version of the Lord’s Prayer.
I praise you and your presence. I hope to see your kingdom
come and bring peace, love and happiness for all.
Thank you for everything you have given to me. The food,
shelter, education, family and friends, and love.
I pray that I don’t take these precious things for granted. And
forgive me for sometimes being mean and impatient with
Please help me be the way you were with me for others. Thank
you for blessing me so much and forgiving too.
Save me from taking a path of bad choices and regret and lead
me to the path so I can follow you.
For you have the knowledge and power, you are my lord.
