The Lords Prayer

  If you are a Christian or a Muslim the Lords prayer is mentioned in the Christian bible and in the Quran. Some will say it was borrowed, I believe the Lords prayer was given to all mankind and should not be a point of dispute. The Lords prayer has a universal quality that should be practiced and enjoyed by all.
 Early in my life I used to teach as seminar on the Lords prayer. Yes- an entire seminar devoted to this inspirational prayer. I always believed that if we pray for the world, then for the community , our families, then our own needs seem quite small. I remember going to various places in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky teaching that seminar with all the poster boards explaining prayer. We cannot be effectual in prayer without first learning the Lords prayer. Whether you are a Christian or a Muslim many times you are called upon to say a blessing for the meal or a family wedding or event. Remember to always honor God first and thank him and ask for his blessing upon the occasion. Gods mercy is greater than his wrath- this is taught in all religions. 

   Lords Prayer
Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory.
Forever and ever.- amen

 Let there be peace, there is no glory in war.
