Thou, from whom the breath of life comes,

May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.

Your Heavenly Domain approaches.

Give us wisdom (understanding, assistance) for our daily need,

Waschboklān chaubźn wachtahźn aikāna

detach the fetters of faults that bind us, (karma)
like we let go the guilt of others.

Wela tachlān l'nesjuna
Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations),

ela patzān min bischa.
but let us be freed from that what keeps us off from our true purpose.

Metol dilachie malkutha wahaila wateschbuchta l'ahlām almīn.
From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act,
the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.

Amźn.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth.
(I confirm with my entire being)


Lords Prayer Translated from Aramaic
A Translation of "Our Father" directly from Aramaic into English

O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration. Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your Presence can abide.

Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.

Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire.

Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish.

Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.

Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.

For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth, power and fulfillment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.


Lords Prayer, from the original Aramaic 
Translation by Neil Douglas-Klotz in Prayers of the Cosmos

O Birther! Father- Mother of the Cosmos

Focus your light within us - make it useful.

Create your reign of unity now-

through our fiery hearts and willing hands

Help us love beyond our ideals

and sprout acts of compassion for all creatures.

Animate the earth within us: we then

feel the Wisdom underneath supporting all.

Untangle the knots within

so that we can mend our hearts' simple ties to each other.

Don't let surface things delude us,

But free us from what holds us back from our true purpose.

Out of you, the astonishing fire,

Returning light and sound to the cosmos.

      Amen.

(English translation offered by Jayem at ACIM Gather 6-25-06)
 
Oh Shimmering, Eternal and Sensuous Presence that Illuminates all!
 
We are restored in our holy union with You
as we cease our activities
and breathe Your holy Breath.
 
You are melting our rigidities
as our mystical union infuses our earthly forms
with the power of Your Light and Your Love.
 
This infusion of Your Wisdom will carry us through
the sacred moments of this day.
 
And as Your Light infuses and dissolves our hidden fears,
we extend and share this Light so that others too
can dissolve the hidden fears within them.
 
Your streaming rays of Wisdom and Power
release us from all forgetfulness
that lead to the constructions
of useless fear.
 
And NOW!
Your Illumined stream of Radiant Light is embodied
and Your Presence is here as us;
carrying us in Your stream of Grace
from moment to moment
and from gathering to gathering.
 
We feel these words in our heart
with unwavering commitment,
trust, celebration and gratitude.
