An excerpt from Jesus’ teachings in The Essene Gospel of Peace, a first-century manuscript.

FATHER in heaven, Your Name is holy. Thy Kingdom is coming.

Thy will is done on earth as in heaven. You are giving daily bread.

You forgive our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us.

You lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

Thine is the Kingdom, the power and glory for ever and ever.

Eternal Source of my being,

I AM on earth, even as I AM in Heaven.

Thy Life is my Bread.

Thy Love, my forgiveness,

Freely given to all.

Thy Light consumes every temptation.

OUR Father-Mother who art in the upper and the within:

            Hallowed be thy Name:

            Thy Kingdom come:

            Thy will be done, in the body as in the spirit:

            Give us every day the Communion of the mystical bread:

            And perfect us in the power of Thy Sons, according as we give  ourselves to perfect others:

            And in the hour of temptation deliver us from the hand of Satan:

            For Thine are the kingdom, the power, and the glory,

            In the life eternal, and in the Amen.

Anna Kingsford

Pray the Prayer backwards slowly and pausing between phrases to reflect it and its multiple layers of meaning:

For ever and ever the power and glory

For thine is the kingdom

Deliver us from evil

Lead us not into temptation

As we forgive them that trespass against us

Forgive our trespasses

Give us this day our daily bread

on earth as in heaven

Thy will be done

Thy kingdom come

Hallowed be thy name

In heaven

Our Father.

Cosmic Prayer by Neil Crawford

Mother Universe whose spirit permeates all things,
beyond all names you are revered.

No division exists between Heaven and Earth,
the two are one in your enduring soul.

Full provision is made on this and all days,
all inequalities are the work of Man.

Trespasses go unrecognised,
forgiveness is unnecessary.

What temptations can there be
for those at peace? .

What can evil offer to the true? .
Power and Glory are dead ideas

Forever and ever in the Eternal Now.

Non-Theistic Lord's Prayer by Patia Rarick:

Essence of Life and Love,

manifesting in all of Creation;

May we hold all of creation as sacred,

and be wise stewards of all its gifts.

May we live in Harmony;

being kind, compassionate and just.

May we seek to value each experience from another's point of view.

May we be a blessing to those around us.

May we be awe inspired and re-membered in love.

May it be so with everyone of us.


The Lord's Prayer in the Language of Indian Sages:

Our Father in heaven (the Source of our being)

Holy be your name (lead us from unholiness to holiness)

Your kingdom come (from fragmentation to wholeness)

Your will be done on earth as in heaven (from conflict to harmony)

Give us this day our daily bread (from time to eternity)

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us (from sin to grace)

Do not bring us to the test (from duality to unity)

But deliver from evil (from darkness to light)

Brother John Martin Sahajananda, abbot of the Shantivanam Ashram in India

Chinok (Native American) Lord's Prayer

Nesika papa klaksta mitlite kopa saghalie

Our Father Who dwells in High


Kloshe kopa nesika tumtum mika nem.

Good for our hearts Your Name.


Kloske mika tyee kopa konaway tillikum;

Good you Chief of all people;


Kloshe mika tumtum kopa illahee kahkwa kopa saghalie;

God Your heart to make our country such as Yours up above;


Potlach konaway sun nesika muckamuck,

Gice us all days our food,


Pee kopet-kumtux donaway nesika mesachie,

And stop remembering all our sins we make to them,


Kahkwa nesilka mamook kopa klasksta spose mamook mesachie kopa nesia;

As we suppose not their sin against us;


Mahah siah kopa nesika konaway mesachie.

Throw far away from us all evil.


Kloshe kahkwa.


A Contemporary Language Paraphrase of The Lord's Prayer by Warren Lynn

Oh God, who is in all places, whether known or unknown,

we affirm your utmost holiness,

regardless of any name by which you are called.

May your ways of life, your intention for all of creation,

be how we live and think and act -

in this world and beyond.

May we seek for this day -

only just enough for ourselves, and no more,

And we ask that you forgive our over-bearing attitudes

and efforts of self-entitlement,

but only as much as we also offer such grace

to others in creation around us.

Protect us God from enticing entrapment

in all that would separate us from your love

And lead us away from all that creates

suffering and pain and death,

for us and all others.

We pray this prayer, God,

in awareness of your love that transcends all,

your presence that reconciles,

redeems and empowers us, together,

now and forever.

A Zen Meditation on the Lord's Prayer

Our eternal source and Self,
timeless, stainless, dwelling always in infinite bliss

May we always remember the sky-like being
we really are by the power of this mantra

And by remembering the timeless being we are,
make this present life blissful and infinite too

We would be lost, nothing at all,
if we didn’t rely every moment
on awareness emanating
from the unbelievable treasury of clear light

By following this pathless Buddha Way
we can stop holding grudges
and behold the truth of our infinite being
free of karmic delusions

By realizing this boundless giving Self we are,
we can avoid turning into demons
suffering and hating in the countless hell realms

Because our unstained Nature
is the origin all all goodness,
all love, and all ability whatsoever,
throughout past present and future worlds

Clap-clap. Done! It’s always just like this!

Paraphrase of the Our Father

The Fatherhood of God is a basic concept for Francis [St. Francis of Assisi] because it makes us brothers and sisters with Jesus and with all creation. Francis sensed very strongly that God was his very own father who took the place of Pietro Bernardone. To get a feel for what Francis experienced, re-write the Our Father in the singular ..."My" Father. Then as you convert the prayer from the plural to the singular, update some of the wording so you understand it. Try to remain faithful to the biblical sense of the prayer. You are not writing a totally new prayer -- you are applying the concept of God as our common Father to God as your own personal Father. Do the exercise on your own or in a prayerful group atmosphere. Share the results with your brothers and sisters or keep it in your Bible for your own personal use.

In our weakest moments our prayer sounds like this (by Jeff Paschall):

“Hey, God! Make me look good! May other people see me and know me and like me! Make other people do what I want them to do as if I were You! I expect You to give me what I need in advance and give me what I want as well. Let me get even with my enemies for what they’ve done to me! Forgive me in advance for when I give in to temptation… which I will. And deliver me from consequences! Praise God, hallelujah, thank you, Jesus. Amen!”

Reversed version of the Lord's Prayer by anonymous

“My Son/My Daughter who art on Earth feeling worried, confused, disoriented, lonely, sad and distressed.”

“I personally know your name and bless it while pronouncing it because I love you and accept you just as you are.”

“I welcome you into my Kingdom as one of my special children; I simply ask that you follow my will on Earth to experience what Heaven is like.”

“Today you will have your daily bread; do not worry. Just remember that it is not only yours, but for you to share with your neighbor. I place it in your hands because I am confident that you know it is for both you and your brothers and sisters.”

“I ask that, just as I have forgiven you, that you forgive those who have offended you.”

“I know that temptations will surround you; however, I am assured that you will do just fine with my power already in you.”

“Take hold of my hand, and don’t let go; I will give you discernment so that you may realize that, through all this time, I have given you, and will continue to give you, the strength you need to not be led toward evil.”

“Never forget that I LOVE YOU from the beginning of time, and I will always love you through the end of time, for I AM IN YOU JUST AS YOU ARE IN ME.”

“May my blessing be with you at all times, and may my peace and eternal love reside within you always, since it is only through me that you are able to receive them, for I AM PEACE AND LOVE.”

“Finally, send my prayer to all those who you love, so that they also become aware that I bless them just as I bless you… AMEN.”

The Lord's Prayer video meditation by Unity.

Love and seek God

"We must love and seek God, not for ourselves but for him, like sons or daughters who find all their joy in taking part in their father and mother’s activities.
When Jesus taught us to pray using the words ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’, he gave us precisely the programme we have to achieve. We must sanctify the name of God within, draw heaven down into ourselves and do his will, as the angels in heaven do. What we do for God we also do for ourselves, since we are in him and he is in us."

« In all the centuries that Christians have repeated after Jesus, Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, how many men and women have prayed for the coming of the kingdom of God! And not only have they prayed, they have worked, they have devoted all their energies to it, and some, like Jesus, have shed their blood. Can all those sacrifices have been made in vain?
In certain regions of the universe there exists somewhere a reservoir that is continually being filled with the forces and currents that those thousands of sincere, ardent beings have sent out into space. One day, this reservoir will be full; it will overflow and take everything with it like a huge tidal wave. We must think of this reservoir, so that we always feel supported in our work for the coming of the kingdom of God on earth. »

Omraam Mikhaël Aivanhov

By authority, not by force

God governs the world by authority, and not by force. If this were not so, there would be neither freedom nor law in the world, and the first three petitions of the Lord's Prayer (Pater Noster): "Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua sicut in caelo et in terra", would lose all meaning. He who prays these petitions does so solely with the purpose of affirming and in-creasing divine authority and not divine power. The God who is almighty - not virtually but actually - has no need at all to be petitioned that his reign may come and that his will may be done. The meaning of this prayer is that God is powerful only in so far as his authority is freely recognised and accepted. Prayer is the act of such recognition and acceptance. One is free to be believing or unbelieving. Nothing and no one can compel us to have faith - no scientific discovery, no logical argument, no physical torture can force us to believe, i.e. to freely recognise and accept the authority of God. But on the other hand, once this authority is recognised and accepted, the powerless becomes powerful. Then divine power can manifest itself - and this is why it is said that a grain of faith is sufficient to move mountains.
