Many thanks to Shirley Dickinson for offering this prayer for Holy Week…

Here is a version of the Lord’s Prayer which is translated from the Aramaic. Aramaic was the language of Jesus and his disciples and there is still an Aramaic speaking church in Syria. This is an English translation from the Aramaic.

Beloved Father, who fills all realms,
May You be honoured in me,
Let Your divine rule come now,
Let Your will come true in all the universe, in the heavens, and on earth,
Give us all that we need for each day, and untangle the knots of unforgiveness that bind us within, as we also let go of the guilt of others,
Let us not be lost in superficial things, but let us be free from that what keeps us from our true purpose,
From You comes all rule, the strength to act, and the song that beautiful all from age to age,

Please do share favourite prayers and prayers and reflections that are important to you to encourage each other.
