The Lord’s Prayer has been the central Christian prayer since the day Jesus taught it to his disciples. It is prayed by Christians across the globe and translated into every language, but one version of the prayer is particularly moving: The original Our Father in Aramaic. Twenty-one centuries ago, Jesus Christ spoke that language to teach us The Lord’s Prayer. As a matter of fact, the Chaldean Catholic Church still uses this version during its services.
Aykanna d'bashmaya aph b'arha
Habwlan lakhma d'sunqananan yaomana
Aykana daph khnan shbwoqan l'khayyabayn
Wela tahlan le'ynesyuna.
Ela patzan min bisha
Metul dilakhe malkutha
Wahayla wateshbukhta l'ahlam almin
