The Lord’s Prayer (An interpretation from the Aramaic)
O Creative breath,
ebbing and flowing through all forms,
soften the ground of our being
and hollow a place for the planting of your presence.
Moving to the heartbeat of your purpose,
make us the embodiment of your compassion.
Fill us with your creativity
that we might bear the fruit of your vision.
Give us the wisdom to produce and share
what each one needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled webs of destiny that bind us
as we release others from the entanglements of past mistakes.
And let us not be seduced
by that which would divert us from our true purpose,
but illuminate the path before us.
For you are the ground of the fruitful vision,
the birthing power, and the fulfillment,
as all is gathered and made whole once again.
