The Lord's Prayer: Prayers of the Cosmos

Here is a translation of the Lord’s Prayer by Neil Douglas-Klotz in Prayers of the Cosmos. Posted on The Nazarene Way of Essenic Studies.

Prayers of the Cosmos: The Lord’s Prayer
(inspired by Matthew 6: 9-13, Luke 11: 2-4)

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos
Focus your light within us—make it useful.
Create your reign of unity now—
through our fiery hearts and willing hands.
Help us love beyond our ideals
and sprout acts of compassion for all creatures.
Animate the earth within us:
we then feel the Wisdom underneath supporting all.
Untangle the knots within
so that we can mend our hearts' simple ties to each other.
Don't let surface things delude us,
but free us from what holds us back from our true purpose.
Out of you, the astonishing fire,
returning light and sound to the cosmos.
