The Lord’s Prayer

When I was younger (from about 8 until 12 years of age) I was a devout christian.  I was a member of the school christian club and always got top marks in scripture studies.  The boarding school I went to was christian and we used to say the Lord’s prayer twice daily.  It is therefore a delight to rediscover it and its translation from its original Aramaic.

Christians steeped in the dogma of the church need to be given access to the some of the older writings as these more accurately reflect Jesus’ message.

Abwûn O cosmic Birther, from whom the breath of life comes,
d’bwaschmâja who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.
Nethkâdasch schmach May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.
Têtê malkuthach. Your Heavenly Domain approaches.
Nehwê tzevjânach aikâna d’bwaschmâja af b’arha. Let Your will come true in the universe (all that vibrates) just as on earth (that is material and dense).
Hawvlân lachma d’sûnkanân jaomâna. Give us wisdom
(understanding, assistance)
for our daily need,

Waschboklân chaubên wachtahên aikâna daf chnân schwoken l’chaijabên. detach the
    fetters of faults that bind us, (karma) like we let go the guilt of others.

Wela tachlân l’nesjuna Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations),
ela patzân min bischa. but let us be freed from that what keeps us off from our true purpose.
Metol dilachie malkutha wahaila wateschbuchta l’ahlâm almîn. From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act,
    the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.
Amên. Sealed in trust, faith and truth. (I confirm with my entire being)
