Our Father - The Lord’s Prayer (A. Campbell), based on Derek’s sermon.
When Jesus prayed and made conclusion
Disciples asked for prayer instruction.
Don’t pray in public observation. Make your praying plain (He said)
And don’t make endless repetition
Lift your eyes to Father in Heaven
Start with praise and adoration. Hallowing His Name
Make supplication, intercession
Pray that you will see his kingdom
In family, friends and in all nations. May His Kingdom come
Then pray the prayer of dedication
That your will be in submission
And give to him your heart’s intentions. Pray His Will be done.
Then pray in faith and with conviction
For Father daily makes provision
(Pray to him with moderation. Think of needs not greed)
Then its time to make confession
Releasing others from condemnation
Forgive as you have been forgiven (Seeds of bitterness breed).
Pray that you will have protection
And when you’re faced with sin, temptation
Believe you can know liberation. From evil He’ll defend
So as you close make declaration.
Your God’s reigns. He has dominion
He’s Lord of every situation. And so we say AMEN!
