The Lord’s Prayer as I Understand It

Give me neither poverty

Nor riches; but feed me with food

That is needful for me daily.

I acknowledge my sins before You

And ask Your forgiveness

In the measure that I forgive

Those who wronged me.

Let me not lay my head

On my pillow at night without

Forgiveness in my heart

To find myself in eternity

Unforgiven and away from You,

But create in me a pure heart

And a renewed spirit within me.

Lead me away from temptation

Let it not take hold of me.

I submit myself to You,

I resist the evil one

For him to flee!

Deliver my soul, O God

From his accusations 

Against me.

In my weakness shine

Your strength through me.

Let the enemy be confounded

And defeated at Your rebuke,

No more condemnation!

In Your presence I will

Shout praises to You

For Yours is the kingdom

The power and the glory

Forever and ever!

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
