A Prayer To My Angel

     I stand before you my Angel friend and companion. I bow before you my Angel teacher and guide. What can I ask of you, what should I say? You know my fear and weakness; You know my power and strength. I ask that you take my fear and weakness, Hold them in the palm of you golden hands. Blow on them with your divine breath; Blow them away so that I am clean and free. Turn them into flowers with golden petals.

     I ask that you take my power and strength, Hold them in you radiant hands. Raise them up to God as an offering of My commitment to the Light.

     I stand before you my Angel, with your sparkling golden light. I stand before you my Love, with your ancient wings of wisdom.

     Knowing together one day we shall stand in glory before the dazzling throne of the Most High. Together we shall hold hands, man and angel, as all creation sings in praise and glory and triumph.

     Victorious in our journey together, Enriched with wisdom, power and love. Together we shall be absorbed into the great Heart of God, United as one in the sweet ecstasy of Almighty Love.

The Lord's Prayer

     A translation directly from Aramaic into English (rather than from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English)

     O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration! Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your Presence can abide. Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.

     Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with your desire. Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish.
