                Lord’s Prayer from different traditions

Lord’s Prayer from Syriac Aramaic to English

O Thou, the breath, the light of all,
Let this light create a heart-shrine within.
And Your counsel rule 'til oneness guides all.
Your one desire then acts with ours, as in all light, so in all forms.
Grant what we need, each day in bread and insight, wisdom.
Loose the cords of mistakes blinding us, as we
Release the strands we hold of others' faults.
Don't let surface things delude us.
But keep us from unripe acts.
To You belongs the ruling mind,
The life that can act and do
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
In faith, I will be true.

The Lord's Prayer  (Text: Anglican Church of New Zealand)

Eternal spirit,
Earth-maker, pain-bearer, life-giver,
Source of all that is and that shall be,
Father and Mother of us all,
Loving God, in Who is heaven:
The hallowing of your name echo through the universe!
The way of your justice be followed by the peoples of the world!
Your heavenly will be done by all created beings!
Your commonwealth of peace and freedom
Sustain our hope and come on earth.
With the bread we need for today, feed us.
In the hurts we absorb from one another, forgive us.
In times of temptation and test, strengthen us.
From trials too great to endure, spare us.
From the grip of all that is evil, free us.
For you reign in the glory of the power that is love,
now and for ever. Amen

Lord’s Prayer from Aramaic to English

O Thou from whom the breath of life comes and which is present in all realms of vibration and light.
 Let this light remain and be invoked in my own holy of holies.
 Let your ruling principles come to pass.
 Let your desire be, as in the universe, so also in the earth.
 Give us bread for our needs from day to day.
 Untie us from our own limiting actions as we untie others from the strands we hold of theirs.
 Do not let us lose ourselves in the superficial appearance.
 But also separate us from unripeness.
 Because to you, in you continue the counsel, power and song from ages to ages.
I affirm this with my whole self at this instant.


This is a translation by Neil Douglas-Klotz from Aramaic

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos
Focus your light within us-make it useful:
Create your reign of unity now-
Your one desire then acts with ours, as in all light, so in all forms.
Grant what we need each day in bread and insight.
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
as we release the strands we hold of others’ guilt.
Don't let surface things delude us,
but free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
the power and the life to do,
the song that beautifies all,
from age to age it renews.
Truly-power to these statements-
may they be the ground from which all
my actions grow: Amen.


Lord’s Prayer Translated from Aramaic
(Our Father which art in Heaven, Hallow by thy name)
O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration!
Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where our Presence can abide.
(Thy kingdom come, thine will be done)
Fill us with your creativity so that we may be
empowered to bear the fruit of our mission.
(On Earth as it is in Heaven)
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with
our desire.
(Give us this day our daily bread)
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what
each being needs to grow and flourish.
(And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors)
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as
we release others from the entanglement of past
(and lead us not in temptation, but deliver us from Evil)
Do not let us be seduced by that which will divert us
from our true purpose, but illuminate the
opportunities of the present moment.
(For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, forever and ever)
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the
birth-power and fulfillment, as all is gathered and
made whole once again.


The Lords Prayer translated from the Aramaic

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos, you create all that moves in light.
O Thou! The Breathing Life of all,
Creator of the Shimmering Sound that touches us.
Respiration of all worlds, we hear You breathing - in and out - in silence.
Source of Sound in the roar and the whisper, in the breeze and the whirlwind, we hear Your Name.
Radiant One: You shine within us, outside us - even darkness shines - when we remember.
Name of names, our small identity unravels in You. You give it back as a lesson.
Wordless Action, Silent Potency - where ears and eyes awaken, there heaven comes.
O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos!


And this particular four-year-old prayed: "And forgive us our trash baskets
as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets."


A four-year-old girl was learning to say the Lord's Prayer.  She was reciting it all by herself without help from her mother.  She said, "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us some e-mail. AMEN."


A Prayer in Secret  by Rev. Jay Dishman
     (a wonderful Unity minister who died in 1980).

O Holy Spirit, which art alive in the soul of me, precious and sacred is Thy Name.

May the abundance of Thy Kingdom and the Truth of Thy Will be expressed in my outer affairs as they are revealed to me at the summit of my soul.

And for the needs of my day, help me to know that You have already given to the capacity of my awareness.

Help me to forgive myself so that I may then forgive those with whom I have experienced pain and inharmony.

Help me to determine the difference between temptation and inspiration, so that I may avoid error and make my life a living testimony to Thy love and Presence.

For Thine is the Kingdom of Good, the power of Truth, and the Glory of Life that endures forever.  Amen.


Version by Rev. Greg Barrette:

Our Creator who exists in the perfect Oneness beyond space and time, Your Identity is whole and real.

Let the goodness of Your perfection manifest in space and time as it exists beyond space and time.

Meet all our needs today.

Help complete our pasts as we are willing for others to complete their pasts with us.

Help us to learn in consciousness, not through hard experience.

And help us out of difficult circumstances when we do choose to learn the hard way.

And so it is!

San Diego 9_2012 David Roth


A Lord’s Prayer for Children

by Bernadete Leal

Beloved Creator,

I am thankful for being part of a great family that includes all people, creatures and nature of this world.

Fill my heart with peace, happiness and harmony. You are in everything I do and everywhere I go and bring to my life what I need to become a strong, patient and loving person.

Your name brings me joy and your presence calms me down.

Cover this whole world with all Your wonderful wishes and blessings.
Provide all the things needed for my body, my mind and my heart because you know what is best for me.

Help me to understand when my friends or somebody in my family hurt me and help them also to understand when I do something hurtful to them, so we will all know that we can  forgive each other and learn to let go.

Watch over me when I am doing any activity with others or when I am just on my own and inspire me to make good choices in my life.

You are the light, you are the energy and I want to celebrate Your love and presence within myself.

Thank You, God, for Your continual infilling that establishes Your kingdom of blessing on earth.
