Aramaic Lord's Prayer
You are invited on a journey of healing with the Aramaic Lord's Prayer. Become a channel of Divine love, joy, delight, healing, and peace by embracing the prayer of Jesus, as if for the first time.
Growing up, many of you learned and recited the Lord's Prayer in church or at bedtime, saying something like this.
Our Father 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 (debts) as we forgive those who trespass against us (our debtors).
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.
This is only one translation of Jesus' words, a translation based on Greek manuscripts which were translated over the centuries from one language into another -- into Latin, German, and then into various forms of the English language. However, Jesus did not teach in Greek, Latin, German, or English. He spoke and taught in Aramaic. In the Temple, he would have spoken Hebrew - a sister language to Aramaic, which was the more formal language for the Temple.
You now have the opportunity to return to Jesus' original language and original style of prayer. See what new meanings await your life.
