I found a cool board book and covered it in black & white gesso... then thought of what it might be. Over a year ago I started a daily habit of prayer and have since wanted to gather my favorite prayers in a personalized art book. I am working on this project for the month of May. I found this amazing prayer and think it will be the first page text. let me know if you have interesting transfer techniques to get the words into the board book.

A version of The Lord’s Prayer

from The New Zealand Prayer Book

Eternal Spirit,

Earth-maker, Pain-bearer, Life-giver,

Source of all that is and that shall be,

Father and Mother of us all,

Loving God, in whom is heaven:

The hallowing of your name echo through the universe!

The way of your justice be followed by the peoples of the world!

Your heavenly will be done by all created beings!

Your commonwealth of peace and freedom

sustain our hope and come on earth.

With the bread we need for today, feed us.

In the hurts we absorb from one another, forgive us.

In times of temptation and testing, strengthen us.

From trials too great to endure, spare us.

From the grip of all that is evil, free us.

For you reign in the glory of the power that is love,

now and for ever. Amen.
