At one point in the new testament the disciples turn to Jesus and say, “Master teach us how to pray.”

They’re not asking because they don’t know how to pray. They’re looking for a pattern of prayer to help them tap into and unlock the potential that sleeps inside of them. A potential that they can see manifest in their Master Jesus.

In answer to their request Jesus then shares what has come to be known as the Lord’s Prayer.
What I share below is a Modern and expanded version of the Lord’s Prayer that ties each statement of Jesus to a particular chakra.
I know that it may sound weird but just go through each section with an open and receptive mind and see what happens.

The Lord’s Prayer – Modern Version

The disciples turn to Jesus and say, “Master teach us how to pray.

Master Yeshua answered them saying, “When you pray go deep into the stillness of your hearts and say, 

(Our father who art in heaven – Crown Chakra)

Oh Oneness that is the All.
Oh radiance beyond words,
Primordial purity that permeates and penetrates all that is.
Oh energy that flows through all of existence. 

(Hallowed be they name – Brow Chakra)

Your brilliance surrounds me, fills me and is me.
Unity, Oneness and wholeness is the only truth.
Help me to continually see your splendour in all that is. 

(Thy kingdom come – Throat Chakra)

Focus your power and light within me now and make it useful.
Let your unmanifest radiance shine through me.

(Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven – Heart Chakra)

Your desires are now my own.
I surrender myself to your magnificence.
I am one with your will.
I am a ray of light issuing forth for your radiance.
And I will share your compassionate love with all of existence. 

(Give us this day our daily bread – Solar Plexus Chakra)

Give to me the wisdom, love and energy I need to grow beyond my limited self.
And give to me the sustenance I need to live a healthy and rich life. 

(And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us – Solar Plexus Chakra Con’t)

Loosen the cords of bondage that may hold me back from my potential.
Forgive any unskillful thoughts, words and deeds that may have issued forth from me.
And may I forgive the unskillfulness that has arisen from others as well. 

(And lead us not into temptation – Sacral Chakra) 

May I continually feel and know our connection.
An unbreakable bond that has never been separated.
May only skillful thoughts, words and deeds arise in me
And may I continually discover the foundations of authentic happiness in my life.
Which keeps me free from the causes of suffering. 

(And deliver us from evil – Root Chakra)

May I continually remember, know and experience our Oneness
And may I walk firmly and steady upon your path of light. 

(For the kingdom, power and glory are yours, now and forever)

Oh ineffable Oneness, radiance and energy,
Magnificence beyond words,
May I continually open myself up
To ever greater union with your timeless truth
During this day and for every day that follows
Until the end of time itself.

The Master continued, “This simple heart felt prayer is enough. You do not have to continue on and on with your words. Once you have finished your prayer remain in silence. Be still and know. Let the light of your source pour through and become anchored in you. So that you may truly experience the power and greatness that lives within you.”
