The Prayer of Jesus from Vespers '23: Bless this Night
Show Notes

Heather, Steve, Mark and Rachel talk with Dev about the Prayer of Jesus...part of the new vespers service (Bless This Night) that was composed and released at Holden Village this year. They reflect on their process and some of the decisions that they made in translating the Lord's Prayer into contemporary language and setting it to music.

The Prayer of Jesus
The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray.
He said, when you pray, pray like this:
O Holy One, who calls me beloved, you are in the air we breathe.
Your name, and all that you have made, is beautiful.
Bring forth your jubilee!
Give life to your dreams in heaven and on earth.
Nourish and sustain our bodies.
Release our debts as we release the debts of others.
Do not let us turn from you.
In hardship and in peril, stay with us.
Amen.
