Adaptation of the Lord's Prayer

Casa del Sol Prayer of Jesus
written by J. Philip Newell

Ground of all being,
Mother of Life, Father of the universe,
Your name is sacred, beyond speaking.

May we know your presence,
may your longings be our longings
in heart and action.

May there be food
for the human family today
and for the whole earth community.

Forgive us the falseness
of what we have done
as we forgive those who are untrue to us.

Do not forsake us
in our time of conflict
but lead us into new beginnings.

For the light of life,
the vitality of life,
and the glory of life
are yours now and forever.  Amen
