The Lord's Prayer for Saturday...Vickie style...

Today, I offer the "Vickie" version of the Lord's Prayer. May you agree with me that this will be done - in MY life, and YOURS....


Our Father,
(He reminds me that I do not have exclusive rights - that all of the redeemed are one Body, and to function properly we must recognize the importance of the other members of the body)
Who art in heaven, 
(He dwells in the third heaven, and He has told us that we are ALSO seated with Him there. Yet He also dwells IN us....what an unfathomable TRUTH)
Hallowed be Thy Name,
(You are Holy...help me - help US, to understand "Holy")
Thy Kingdom come,
(You have told us that Your Kingdom is within US...may we walk, talk and think today in that Authority)
Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven,
(.......Usher in your Kingdom through Your Body...may be we united and strengthened for the building up of Your Kingdom, never forgetting that THIS is why we are here and that this IS Your will)
Give us this day our daily bread,
(We need the sustenance required to function in these bodies of clay for this time you have placed us on earth...Give us what we need THIS DAY to carry out Your commission...knowing full well that we only need a daily allowance, for we are only passing through on our Mission for You)
Forgive us our trespasses,
(If we have wronged any person, if there is a grudge or a hateful thought towards any person, bring this to our awareness and forgive this sin)
As we forgive those who trespass against us,
(We make a concerted effort RIGHT NOW to call to mind any person we have held any offense against - and we FORGIVE that person...and in doing so, we free ourselves from the bondage of unforgiveness) 
Lead us not into temptation,
(Father, we KNOW that you NEVER lead us into temptation...we are asking that you STEER US AWAY from any temptation the enemy may try to place in our path today)
Deliver us from evil,
(Let your Holy Spirit alert us to any snare of evil the enemy will try to place in our path today)
For Thine is the Kingdom,
(We are the members of Your Kingdom - we belong to YOU)
and the glory,
(We GLORIFY Your name)
Forever, and ever,
(Of your Kingdom - which includes every  member of the Body of Christ - there is NO END....all Glory to YOU throughout eternity....the vastness of which we really and truly have no concept)
Amen.
(We agree with YOU, that this is done)
