Spirituality

The Lord's Prayer in the ancient Aramaic language

 

A translation directly from the Aramaic into English (rather than from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English)

“O Cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration!
Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your Presence can abide.
Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of our mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the power and the fulfilment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.”

(Translated by Mark Hathaway)
