About This Version

The above is simply one interpretation of how someone might send a text message of The Lord’s Prayer. It’s based on English, and we used ‘debtors’ because it was shorter to text. Feedback we’ve gotten so far on this SMS version is that it’s cute but not really a language. Perhaps it can serve as a reminder, however, to keep up the conversation with God, daily, in whatever context we find ourselves.
