The Lord’s Prayer; a Direct Translation

lords prayer with lamp One possible translation of “Our Father” directly from the Aramaic (the language Jesus spoke) into English (rather than from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English)

” O Birther! Father-Mother osf the Cosmos,

Focus your light within us -make it useful:

Create you reign of Unity now-

Your one desire then acts with ours,
as in all light, so in all forms.

Grant what we nee 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.

From the research in the Neil Douglas Klotz book Prayers of the Cosmos
