I cannot say OUR - if my religion has no room
for others and their needs.

I cannot say
FATHER - if I do not demonstrate this
relationship in my  daily living.

I cannot say
WHO ART IN HEAVEN - if all my interests and
pursuits are In  earthly things.

I cannot say
HALLOWED BE THY NAME - if I who
am called by His name am not  holy.

I cannot say
THY KINGDOM COME - if I am unwilling to surrender
my own sovereignty, and accept the righteous reign of God.

I cannot say
THY WILL BE DONE - if I am resentful of
God's will in my  own daily life.

I cannot say
ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN - unless I am truly
ready to  give myself to His service, here and now.

I cannot say
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD, - without expending
honest  effort for it, or if I ignore the genuine needs of my neighbour.

I cannot say
FORGIVE US OUR SINS AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO
SIN AGAINST US
,-  if I continue to hold a grudge against anyone at all.

I cannot say
LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION- if I deliberately choose
to remain in a situation where I am likely to be tempted.

I cannot say
DELIVER US FROM EVIL - If I am not prepared to fight in
  the spiritual realm with the weapon of prayer.

I cannot say
THINE IS THE KINGDOM - If I do not give the King
the disciplined obedience of a loyal subject.

I cannot say
THINE IS THE GLORY - If I am seeking
my Personal glory first.

I cannot say
FOREVER - If I am overly anxious
about the affairs of  today.

I cannot say
AMEN - If I cannot honestly say :-"This is my prayer,
- cost whatever it may!"
