Our Father in heaven
“Heaven” is wherever God is. God is the power/source/principle-of-rationality at the core of the universe and of all that is.
Hallowed be your Name
This power/source/principle is beyond all final knowing or naming and can only be beheld in awe.
Your kingdom come
The world and universe are not complete, but are constantly and ever evolving – we pray — into a better, more just and peaceful future.
Your will be done on earth as in heaven
A sign of that ongoing evolution is our work in building a more just and peaceful planet.
Give us this day our daily bread
We desire, hope, and even expect that our basic human needs will be provided for.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
We cannot expect mercy unless we are willing to grant it.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil
We seek protection from destructive powers without and within.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever.
Ultimate sovereignty, power, and honor are due to no other being or system for all eternity. These things belong only to God.
