Prayer of Jesus in Aramaic

Posted by Jamil Syvak on May 24, 2008

Abwoon d’bwashmaya

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos/ you create all that moves in light.


Nethqadash shmakh

Focus your light within us–make it useful:  as the rays of a beacon show the way.


Teytey malkuthakh

Create your reign of unity now–through our firey hearts and  willing hands.


Nehwey sebyanach aykanna d’bwashmaya aph b’arha.

Your one desire then acts with ours, as in all light, so in all forms.


Habwlan lachma d’sunqanan yaomana.

Grant what we need each day in bread and insight:

subsistence for the call of growing life.


Washboqlan khaubayn (wakhtahayn)

aykana daph khnan shbwoqan l’khayyabayn.

Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,

as we release the strands we hold of others’ guilt.


Wela tahlan l’nesyuna

Don’t let us enter forgetfulness

Ela patzan min bisha.

But free us from unripeness


Metol dilakhie malkutha wahayla wateshbukhta l’ahlam almin.

From you is born all ruling will, the power and the life to do,

the song that beautifies all, from age to age it renews.

Ameyn.

Truly–power to these statements–

may they be the source from which all  my actions grow.

Sealed in trust & faith.  Amen.
