Haiku-charged Lord’s Prayer

I had a cynical (though no less accurate for it) post a little over a week ago with a “new” Lord’s Prayer (here).

In all fairness, since this blog started out being focused on spiritual and faith musings, let’s get spiritual today. Hell, let me get annoyingly artistic, too, with my poetic turn on the Lord’s Prayer…a haiku version I wrote more than a dozen years ago.

Lord’s Prayer – Haiku Version

Oh God our Father
Who lives and reigns from heaven
Holy is Your name

Let Your kingdom come
May Your sovereign will be done
In earth and heaven

Give us bread of life
Dwell not on our sinfulness
Help us to forgive

Divert us from sin
Help us resist temptation
As only You can

Power and glory
Honor and all Creation
Are Yours forever

They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
