ORIGINAL OF THE LORD'S PRAYER

(From the records of Jesus' life 50 years after the crucifixion, found in a monastery which they occupied.)

GOD OUR FATHER
You stand revealed to us this day as
The ever-present Principle.
Hallowed be your name;
We know it as Elohim.
Give us to live and know this day as you, God, alone see us living and knowing,
Ever pure and perfect,
As you have revealed your Perfection to man.
And that Perfection has come forth as your son, your only creation,
The only one through which you manifect.
Give us to know your son. For to know you as you know man is to know ourselves.
For in knowing this, we are not lead into any way save your way.
And thus we know that this is the God way for us.
God our Father, we see clearly each day that we may and do forgive every trespass that man has brought forth into this Kingdom.
Thus we are not tempted to set up man's creations for your creations.
God our Father,
Again we say, hallowed be the name God.
God our Father.
