I thought this much worth pondering shared with me by Gill Henwood

The Lord’s Prayer

(traditional English)

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,

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.

Amen

Comparison from a Retreat

at St Oswald’s, Sleights led by The Rev’d Nigel Gerrans

 

A Nazarene transliteration of the Aramaic

Lord’s Prayer

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

approach.

Let your will come true –

in the universe

(all that vibrates)

just as on earth

        (that is material and dense).

Give us wisdom

        (understanding, assistance)

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.)
