  •  The Lord's Prayer... (5+ / 0-)

    is a great one to fall back on!  

    Our country can survive war, disease, and poverty... what it cannot do without is justice.

      the hardest time remembering.

      I don't know if it's the two translations issue (debts v transgressions), the length, or the fact I've never heard it set to music that flowed right.

      The Jesus Prayer is ancient, short, and easy. The version I've been using is "Lord Jesus, have mercy on me, a sinner."

      I also seem to be able to remember prayers I've heard recited properly to music - 'Glory Be' and 'Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow' would be the two I'm most familiar with in that category.

      I've been using the Jesus Prayer for small beads and the Lord's Prayer or Glory Be for the bigger ones.

      Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
