In the last few years, I have spent time compiling different ways to pray… the attached document uses The Lord’s Prayer as a physical prayer.

“A Dance Anthem was originally prepared for a children’s after-school program at Syracuse University in the early 1970’s.  The artwork is by Paul Bosch.  Ruth Becker contributed to the choreographic design.  This piece was published in slightly different form in The Circle, May, 1974, and thereafter in my The Paschal Cycle: Lent, Easter, Pentecost Worship Resources (St. Louis: Concordia, 1980).  Both volumes are believed to be out-of-print.  The text of the Lord’s Prayer is that of the English Language Liturgical Consultation (1988).”

Attached is a word document English/Spanish translation: TheLordsPrayer

The Lord’s Prayer (as a Physical Prayer)

Christians can use various (yoga) postures to focus on the different aspects of God the Father. For each pose, say a line from the Lord’s Prayer.  The video above, can be used as a helpful tool.

In Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) we read: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.   Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.   Give us this day our daily bread.   And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.   And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen”.
