God our Father (Let your kingdom come)

Added 4th September 2017


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

God our Father, King of heaven,
let your Kingdom come.
On the earth as in your heaven,
let your will be done.

Everything we need you’ve given;
bread for every day.
In your mercy we’re forgiven,
may we show your grace.

Let your Kingdom come,
let your will be done.

Lead us not into temptation,
help us walk your ways.
Lord, deliver us from evil,
hear us as we pray:

For the kingdom, and the power
and the glory are yours,
now and forever,

Bible Passages: Matt 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4

This song came out of an improvised moment of prayer, where I led the congregation in the “chorus” part of this song. We were singing it out over situations in our world - injustice, issues on the news or problems in our communities. I would encourage you to try this for yourself, perhaps showing images of issues on a screen, or encouraging people to picture a situation in their mind as they sing. The verses came later as I decided to try and set the Lord’s Prayer in a way that it was singable and recognisable, and yet would immediately apply the prayer to our everyday lives.
