Our Father

Questions from a Ewe offers a A Lenten Reflection on Ash Wednesday Readings which makes some interesting points.

At the end the author offers the Lord's Prayer in four translations.

It is good to ponder, and even to quietly pray the translation of the prayer Jesus taught us from the original Aramaic.

 You, from whom the breath of life comes,
Who fill all realms of sound, light and vibration

May your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.

Your Heavenly Domain approaches.

Let Your will come true - in all that vibrates (the universe) just as in all that is material and dense (earth).

Give us understanding, assistance for our daily need,
detach the fetters of faults that bind us, like we 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 off 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.
