The Lord's Prayer sung in Aramaic (the language of Jesus)
Prayer can often be difficult. We struggle to know what to say to God and often we forget to make time for prayer. It can be useful to try to pray at the same time everyday- even if this is only for a short time.
Jesus taught the disciples to pray. In Matthew 6. 9-13 he says:
‘Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not bring us to the time of trial,
but rescue us from the evil one.'
It is a prayer and model of praying that Christians have used for centuries.
There are many resources available to help you create a structured time of prayer. Here are some web links to whet your appetite and get you started!
