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 life.

#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 give up my own sovereignty and accept the righteous reign of God.

#I CANNOT SAY
THY WILL BE DONE ; if I am unwiling or resentful of having it in my life.

#I CANNOT SAY
ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN ; if I am not truly ready to give myself to his service here and now.

#I CANNOT SAY
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD ; if I am not expending an honest effort for it or by ignoring the enuine needs of my fellow man.

#I CANNOT SAY
FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US ; if I continue to harbor a grudge against anyone.

#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 POWER ; if I fear what my neighbors do or say to me.

#I CANNOT SAY
THINE IS THE GLORY ; if I am seeking my own glory first.

#I CANNOT SAY
FOREVER ; if I am anxious about each days's events.

#I CANNOT SAY
AMEN ; if i don't honestly say "cost what it may, this is my prayer.".
