Prayer Bead Reflection for Jesus, our Lord


Our final translation for the Lord’s Prayer comes from the original language that Jesus spoke, Aramaic.  I came across it several years ago in the book, Prayers of the Cosmos by Neil Douglas-Klotz.
“O Birther!  Father-Mother of the Cosmos,
you create all that moves
in light.
O Thou! The Breathing Life of all,
Creator of the Shimmering Sound that touches us.
Respiration of all worlds,
we hear you breathing- in and out-
in silence.
Source of Sound: in the roar and the whisper,
in the breeze and the whirlwind, we
hear your Name.
Radiant One: You shine within us,
outside us- even darkness shines- when
we remember.
Name of names, our small identity
unravels in you, you give it back
as a lesson.
Wordless Action, Silent Potency-
where ears and eyes awaken, there
heaven comes.
O Birther!  Father-Mother of the Cosmos!”
