The Lords Prayer
I thought this much worth pondering shared with me by Gill Henwood
The Lord’s Prayer
who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done;
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
for ever and ever.
Comparison from a Retreat
at St Oswald’s, Sleights led by The Rev’d Nigel Gerrans
A Nazarene transliteration of the Aramaic
Oh Thou, from whom
the breath of life comes,
who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration,
may your light be experienced in my utmost holiest,
Your Heavenly Domain
Let your will come true –
in the universe
(all that vibrates)
just as on earth
(that is material and dense).
Give us wisdom
for our daily need.
Detach the fetters of faults
that bind us, and help us
to let go the guilt of others.
Let us not be lost
in superficial things (materialism, common temptations),
but let us be freed
from that which keeps us
from our true purpose.
From You comes
the all-working will,
the lively strength to act,
the song that beautifies all and renews itself
from age to age.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth.
(I confirm with my entire being.)
One thought on “The Lords Prayer”
Thank you for this.
Something discerned yesterday, upon which your offering builds.
