The Lord’s Prayer from The Message

Our Father in Heaven,

Reveal who You are,

Set the whole world right

Do what’s best–as above, so below

Keep us alive with three square meals.

Keep us forgiven with You and forgiving others

Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.

You’re in charge!

You can do anything You want!

You’re ablaze in beauty!

Yes. Yes. Yes.

I often read Scripture from The Message version. I especially enjoy reading familiar passages in this version. Because of the different wording, it really catches my attention.  For example, “You’re ablaze in beauty.” WOW! My daugther and I were amazed by the sunset this evening. The sun streaming through layers of clouds onto the whitest of snow…breathtaking…and yet, nothing near to the beauty and glory of God. He is ablaze in beauty, now and forevermore.
