In the Gospel of Luke 11.1-13 Jesus is asked to teach his disciples how to pray.

The Lord’s Prayer is familiar to most Christians and is recited by many on a daily basis.

Below is a translation by Neil Douglas-Klotz: he has attempted to maintain some of the Aramaic rhythms and nuances of meaning

“Thou, the Breath, the Light of All,

Let this Light create a heart-shrine within.

And your Counsel rule ‘til Oneness guides all.

     as we release the strands we hold of others faults.

not let surface things delude us.

But keep us from unripe acts.

The life that can act and do,

the song that beautifies all,

from age to age it renews.

In faith, I will to be true
