Prayers of the Cosmos

The below translation of The Lord’s Prayer from Aramaic to English
is taken from the book, Prayers of the Cosmos by Neil Douglas-Klotz.
There are several translations below each line of the prayer.

The Aramaic is in Bold letters and The King James V version is in parenthesis.

Excerpts from The Beatitudes follow The Lord’s Prayer.
There is so much more in this book than appears on this page.

…I took some of the lines and created my own, special prayer…

Prayers of the Cosmos

O Thou! The Breathing Life of all,
Creator of the Shimmering Sound that touches us.
Focus your light within us–make it useful:
as the rays of a beacon show the way.
Let your counsel rule our lives, clearing our intention for co-creation.
Create in me a divine cooperation–from many selves, one voice, one action.
Produce in us, for us, the possible: each only-human step toward home lit up.
Untangle the knots within so that we can mend our hearts’ simple ties to others.
Don’t let us enter forgetfulness, the temptation of false appearances.
Out of you, the astonishing fire, the birthing glory,
returning light and sound to the cosmos…
Again and again, from each universal gathering–of creatures,
nations, planets, time, and space–to the next.
Truly–power to these statements–may they be the ground from which all
my actions grow:
Sealed in trust and faith.
Amen.

In the fall of 1999, I was ordained as a metaphysical minister in the Order of Melchizedek, ordained by Reverend Dan Chesbro and became a member of the Sanctuary of the Beloved (New York). I studied further under Reverend Brown at the United Metaphysical Churches of America in Roanoke, Virginia, which had its origins in the Spiritualist Movement. I am also a Master Teacher of Sekhem Seichim Reiki with over eleven years of experience practicing and teaching Reiki. I have also given messages and ‘sermons’ at Arlington Metaphysical Chapel (Virginia), where I led adult study classes on a variety of esoteric topics. My online group, One with Spirit Meta-Journal Forum, has been going strong since early 2002. I'm also known for my Psychic Portraits, art from beyond the physical.
