Rhyming Lord's Prayer for Kids

March 15th, 2014

God so holy, full of grace,
make the world a better place.
Give us the food we need for today.
Forgive us our wrongs
when we go astray.
Help us always to do good,
and love others, like we should.
God we love you; we are yours.
Swing wide open heaven's doors.

This rhyming version of the Lord's Prayer is intended to express the praises and petitions of the "grown-up version" from Matthew 6:9-13 in child-friendly language and easy-to-recite rhymes. It was written for and first shared in a children's sermon accompanying a sermon series on the Lord's Prayer at Arlington United Methodist Church in Nashville, Tenn., February 16, 2014.
