The Lord's Prayer

"Heavenly Father, hallowed be your name", Y aH WeH who is Life. (We are here to live, and to love Life and all his children.)
"Your Kingdom come." (The Kingdom of Love).
"Your will be done." (That we all love each other.)
"On Earth as it is in Heaven." (In Heaven love rules, as it can on Earth.)

"Give us our daily bread." (The bread of life that we need daily - it is Life, it is God, the flesh of Jesus.)
"Forgive us our debts." (Our sins, our wrongs, any harm we do.)
"As we forgive our debtors." (Those who have sinned, wronged, harmed us.)
"And lead us not into temptation." (Acts that may cause us to harm ourselves or others like casual sex, harmful drugs and drinking.)
"But deliver us from harm." (Anything that harms us.)

God is Life. His Kingdom is Love. We are all his children and should love one another. The Holy Spirit is the Truth that we should all love each other which is what Jesus wanted us to remember by keeping this very simple principle simple. He didn't want all the details to be written down and argued over. He wanted the simple principle of loving Life (God) and each other to be easily remembered so they could be ('easily') followed.

Just a thought.
