So often the familiar words of the Lord's Prayer can go racing past us that we scarcely know what we've said. Sometimes, one phrase or another will register in our thoughts and we'll stay with that. But even this can be a challenge. Can we always say 'Thy will be done on earth' and really mean it? Can the 'Kingdom, the power and the glory' really be wrestled back from the politicians, the advertisers and the celebrities? Can this prayer really be ours as well as Christ's?

 

Poet-Priest Malcolm Guite will look at some of these questions and try to slow down and deepen our reading of this prayer, and reflect on it through seven sonnets.

 

Malcolm Guite is an English poet, singer-songwriter, Anglican priest, and academic. Guite is the author of five books of poetry as well as several books on Christian faith and theology. He also performs as a singer and guitarist fronting the Cambridgeshire-based blues, rhythm and blues, and rock band "Mystery Train".
