I kind of like the Lord's Prayer

davedan:
There I said it. This is a bit of a tangent off the Petty Prayers thread.

I like the Lord's prayer, not as  a christian, because I am not a Christian, nor for any religious meaning. Nor do I have any illusions that it was first constructed by a person named Jesus. But for an examination of the words of the second part as it appears in Luke:

    Give us each day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our sins,
    for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
    And lead us not into temptation."


Give us just what we need for day.

Forgive us what we owe you and we forgive what we owe others.

I really rather like that it is something that I think is helpful and while self involved is also selfless.

There that's my dirty secret out.

Captain Jack Harkness:
So do you like the entire prayer, or just that part?

davedan:
Pretty much that part although you know it's basically half of it.

The Right Honourable Mlle Ant├ęchrist:
I've always liked the 23rd Psalm and Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.

I still have The Lord's Prayer memorized from when I was a kid.

Morgenleoht:
I'm more partial to the Song of Solomon...
