Sermon on the Mount II

Year 1  ( 2022 – 2023 )


Matthew 6:7-21 [25-34]


Jesus teaches: the Lord’s Prayer, treasure in heaven, [do not worry.]


Heavenly Father, heavenly Mother,
holy and blessed is your true name.
We pray for your reign of peace to come,
we pray that your good will be done,
let heaven and earth become one.
Give us this day the bread we need,
give it to those who have none.
Let forgiveness flow like a river between us,
from each one to each one.
Lead us to holy innocence
beyond the evil of our days.
Come swiftly Mother, Father, come.
for yours is the power and the glory and the mercy:
forever your name is All in One.
