In one of his best talks, Rev. Gary presents the Lord’s Prayer in Jesus’ native language, Aramaic. And he offers a direct translation from Aramaic into English. He shows how this translation is deeper and richer than the Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English version we are familiar with.

Affirmation: “In praying, I turn to the spirit of God at the heart of my being.”

“The Lord’s Prayer contains the essence of Jesus’ entire teachings. It is a capsule summary of the message he declared throughout Palestine.” (SETTING A TRAP FOR GOD, by Rocco A. Errico pg. 24)

The Aramaic Lord’s Prayer – phonetically written
Ah-bwoon d’bwash-maya
Neeta-kadasha shmach
Tay-tay malkoota
Ne-whay t’save-ya-nach eye-kanna d’bwash-maya op-baraha
How-lahn lachma d’soonkahnan yow-manna
Wash wo-klan how-bane eye-kanna dahp hahnan shwa-ken el’high-ya-bane
Oo-lah tahlan el’nees-yo-na, ella pahsahn min beesha

“Prayer is not “telling God” what to do. God knows how to run the universe!” (SETTING A TRAP FOR GOD, by Rocco A. Errico pg. 14)

“For in Him (God) we live and move and have our being.” Acts 17:28

“A prayer without desire in it, a prayer without sincerity in it, a prayer without soul in it, a prayer without Spirit in it is fruitless prayer.” (TURNING POINTS, by Martha Smock 4).
