Let my mercy toward others make up for the wrongs done to me.




The Esoteric Lord's Prayer, by Rudolf Steiner


Father,

You who were, are, and will be in our inmost being:


May your name be glorified and praised in us.


May your kingdom grow in our deeds and in our inmost lives.


May we perform your will as you, Father, lay it down in our inmost being.

 
You give us spiritual nourishment, the bread of life, superabundantly in all the changing conditions of our lives.


Let our mercy toward others make up for the sins done to us.

You do not allow the tempter to work in us beyond the capacity of our strength.


For no temptation can live in your being, Father, and the tempter is only appearance and delusion, from which you lead us, Father, through the light of knowledge.

May your power and glory work in us through all periods and ages of time. 

Amen
