Below is a version of the Lord's Prayer that comes from the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. If you have children or work with children, perhaps you could try sharing it with them. While this prayer was especially written for children, you also might find that the simplicity and innocence of this childlike prayer could be meaningful for anyone who is a child of God, no matter their age.
We want to know You.
And be close to You.
Please show us how.
Make everything in the world right again.
And in our hearts, too.
Do what is best - just like You do in heaven,
And please do it down here, too.
Please give us everything we need today.
Forgive us for doing wrong, for hurting You.
Forgive us just as we forgive other people when they hurt us.
Rescue us! We need You.
We don't want to keep running away and hiding from You.
Keep us safe from our enemies.
You're strong, God.
You can do whatever You want.
You are in charge.
Now and forever and for always!
We think You're great!
Yes we do!
