Pray the Lord’s Prayer for others

Use the Lord’s Prayer for intercession by putting the name of the person you’re praying for in each clause.*

Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy in [name of person]. May your kingdom come in him. May your will be done in [person’s name] as it is in heaven. Give him today the food he needs, and forgive his sins. Help him to forgive those who sin against him. Don’t let [person’s name] yield to temptation, but rescue him from the evil one (adapted from Matthew 6:9-13).

*adapted from Charles Whiston, Teach Us To Pray, p.124-125.
