Remember, as you pray, to comtemplate the meaning of the words and to envision the others around the world who are also praying with you.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory
for ever and ever.
Prayer of Eleanor Roosevelt
"Our Father, who has set a restlessness in our hearts and made us all seekers after that which we can never fully find, forbid us to be satisfied with what we make of life. Draw us from base content and set our eyes on far-off goals. Keep us at tasks too hard for us that we may be driven to Thee for strength. Deliver us from fretfulness and self-pitying; make us sure of the good we cannot see and of the hidden good in the world. Open our eyes to simple beauty all around us and our hearts to the loveliness men hide from us because we do not try to understand them. Save us from ourselves and show us a vision of a world made new."
Eleanor Roosevelt's nightly prayer, from Mother R. By Elliott Roosevelt and James Brough.
