The Lords Prayer

Our father who art in heaven

Forgetting the son and his holy sacrament
Wandering in a maze, looking for atonement
Disavowing God, we bow to evil temptations
God is growing weary of his sinful creation

Hallowed be thy name

We constantly profane the Kings monicker 
Rebuking displays regarding the creator
Disbelieving in the immaculate conception
God is growing weary of his sinful creation

Thy kingdom come thy will be done

Freewill creatures ignoring the warnings
Hastily striding toward the end of mornings
He has set the time for earth’s annihilation
God is growing weary of his sinful creation

On earth as it is in heaven

Adam and Eve the first created beings
Creation immoral from the very beginning
Inviting sin into their perfect habitation
God is growing weary of his sinful creation

Give us this day our daily bread

Refusing to eat from the table of life 
Dining on lies, as we wallow in strife
Children dying from spiritual malnutrition
God is growing weary of his sinful creation

Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors

The world was cleansed by the great flood
Human’s given hope, by a sacrifice of blood
Unable to forgive we await a fiery termination
God is growing weary of his sinful creation

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil

Willing walking the path of unrighteousness
Passing the point where we can seek forgiveness
Time has run out for this sinful congregation
The son has returned destroying creation

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever amen

    Absolutely beautiful and ingenious! I couldn't have said it better myself, actually I may have because I believe that my ideas and wisdom flow straight from God, so that 'I' in me then is really God, and I think that the inspiration for this work is that same 'I' in you! I have spiritual works that I was timid to post because I was ridiculed for it at Lulu's where they eventually drove me away. Thanks for reminding me who I am.

    Hi Anthony--your insights are definitely spot on--it really is so sad what we've become...a very timely reminder about that we must start to mend our ways--thanks so much for sharing this prayer with us...

    Hi Anthony - Great poem. Being a pastor for 30 years I can say this poem preaches a stirring message. Thank you for the kind remarks on my poem "Happiness"

    Thank you for reading my latest poem and your comment. Enjoyed reading yours today. I say the Lord's Prayer, a bit differently with trespasses, several times a day and pray my sins will be forgiven. Not exactly sure what they have been, but I'm sure I'm no different than the rest of us at times. Very creative way to include my favorite prayer. Ellen

    Interesting write interspersed with "The Lord's Prayer" or example of a prayer teaching us how to pray. Keep the creative pen flowing with testimonies of your faith. Sara
