Prayer for Intellectuals, Naturalists, and Realists
The Lord’s Prayer begins with the address, “Our Father, who art in Heaven.”
An intellectual could address, “My higher self, residing in my highest consciousness”.
A Naturalist might look to, “Source of the Life Force within me and all of existence.”
A realist might get even more existential, “I now focus on the pure BE-ing within me and all that is.”
Another idea, use the title “God” as an acronym for “Good Orderly Direction,” as suggested in 12-step circles. It continues with what could be considered a title, “Hallowed be thy name”, or an acknowledgement of authority, power. “Whose name I do not know” was used by Tom Hanks’ character in "Joe Versus the Volcano," written by John Patrick Shanley. I’m sure it’s okay to borrow it.
