The Old and The New 'Prayer'
The Old and The New 'Prayer' Writing 10
Writing 10 has as titles for the different chapters the twelve components of life. Presented are the statements of what here is called the 'Old' Prayer (usually referred to as the 'Lord's Prayer') and the affirmations in what is called the 'New' 'Prayer'. However, the word 'prayer' when taken in its traditional sense of 'asking' does not cover the real and direct communication with life's Totality. It is therefore put in quotes.
Also in this Writing is it the I AM, life's Totality, Who speaks.
The crucial difference between the 'Old' and the 'New' 'prayer' is that the 'new' one speaks not, like the Lord's prayer does, from the position of our external earthly situation. The new 'prayer', the affirmation, speaks from our now being (re)connected on our innermost spiritual level with the Real Reality. 'Praying' became now: speaking with.
OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME ....... ONE HOLY, I TREASURE YOUR NAMES
YOUR KINGDOM COME YOUR LOVE IS ALL-INCLUDING
YOUR WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN YOUR TRUTH CONTAINS THE UNIVERSE
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD RIGHT AND OF BEAUTY IS YOUR STRUCTURE
AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS, AS WE DO OUR DEBTORS YOUR WHOLENESS UNFOLDS
AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION EVERYTHING MANIFESTS YOU
BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL YOUR ENERGY IS LIFE
For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory I want, also through Me, Your Splendor
for ever and ever. to sparkle ever brighter
