Whenever we pray the Lord’s Prayer, we are imitating Christ. Here is a chance to hear the Lord’s prayer in Aramaic, the language that Jesus and his community spoke. Over the years, Aramaic has remained alive in Syrian churches, and this video comes from Syria. It includes English subtitles. If you saw the movie “The Passion of Christ” you may recall hearing bits of this same language. After watching this video, please take time to pray for peace in Syria and for those who are the victims of the chaos and destruction that have been set loose in this cradle of Christianity.
Also, as Easter approaches, consider watching or re-watching “The Passion of Christ” to prepare your hearts.
