Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 11/14

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; 
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us; 
and lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from evil...

Deliver us from evil, Lord...

Deliver us from evil plotting and scheming
   to pillage, kill and destroy...

Deliver us from evil that hates the other,
  simply for being "other"...

Deliver us from evil slaying the innocent
   who've done no wrong, no harm...

Deliver us from evil preying on freedom,
   preferring the shackles of hate...

Deliver us from evil that minds no reason,
   no logic, no wisdom, no sense...

Deliver us from evil striking with terror,
   holding the blameless captive...  

Deliver us from evil that lurks in the hearts
   of those who hate and despise us...
  Deliver us from evil blaspheming the name
   of all that is good, pure and just...

And deliver us, Lord, from evil that taunts
   and haunts our own pride and greed
   our prejudiced hearts and selfish desires,
   our willful and obstinate minds...

Lead us not into temptation
   but deliver us from evil, Lord:
      into your mercy and your grace,
      into the peace of your just word,
      into the law of your abiding love...
