I – ONE METAPHYSICAL INTERPRETATION OF THE LORD’S PRAYER By Rev. Jim Webb
The Lord’s Prayer has been a source of inspiration and confusion for many. It is one of the most widely known prayers associated with Christianity, and thus may trigger some people based on wounds they have suffered as a result of many Christian teachings. It has been spoken by millions, and invoked as a default prayer of many who practice spirituality, and thus is also a source of inspiration for many. It can be interpreted many ways. One way we can interpret it to provide more inspiration and less confusion came to me recently:
II – OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN
Our Mother, Father, nurturer, supporter creator,
Energy of light that lives among us in all things as all things,
Energy of love that lives within us,
Help me to recognize your light within; that it may create within me the Kingdom of Heaven.
III – HALLOWED BY THY NAME
We invoke the sacred, holy essence of the creative energy of the universe, Each time we speak your name.
We join the millions of beings who have traveled the earth,
Each time we speak your name.
We invoke the energy, intention and creative power of these millions, Each time we speak your name, thus magnifying the effect of our prayers.
IV – THY KINGDOM COME
Right now, we invoke the kingdom of heaven we create in our inner space,
Right now, we invoke the peace, love, joy, abundance, wisdom, courage and inspiration that you are, because it is also within us as we are your beloved children in whom you are so well pleased.
Right now we invoke the powerful creative force that creates the Kingdom of Heaven, knowing that this force lives within us as we nurture it through prayer, meditation and emotional healing.
And we create this Kingdom of Heaven as an inner force when we invite, expand and invoke your light within.
V – THY WILL BE DONE
As we align with your light, your light heals our hearts and minds, transforms our ego’s distortions and aligns our will with your will in a way that is for our greatest good.
As we are aligned with our soul’s best interests, we are aligned with your will.
My will and thy will are one,
My will and thy will be done.
VI – ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN
As I align my will with thy will, this ethereal alignment is reflected on the earth. As I align my will with thy will, my life becomes more easy and effortless,
As I align my will with thy will, my joys become magnified.
As I align my will with thy will, conflicts, dramas, and difficulties are mitigated. As I align my will with thy will, I create the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
VII – GIVE US THIS DAY, OUR DAILY BREAD
Each day, we turn our faces to the light,
Each day, we receive the guidance, nurturing, support and reassurance of God’s Grace.
Each day, we open for renewal, inspiration, encouragement, and healing of God’s Grace.
Each day we look to God as the source of our supply, our abundance and our love, knowing that God works through an infinite number of people, places and events to deliver to her children their needs.
