Praying with the Pearls
Ideas for Your Personal Contemplative Practice
Praying the Lord's Prayer
with the Body
...therefore glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:20)
In my booklet, I outline a practice for using the Pearls to pray the Lord's Prayer. Mindful of the benefits of using the body to ground and amplify our spiritual practice, I offer here a link to a practice developed by Neal Douglas-Klotz, "Personal Prayer Movements and Attunements for the Aramaic Prayer of Jesus (‘Lord’s Prayer’)." Not only does this practice unify body and spirit, it offers us the opportunity to learn the Lord's Prayer in its original Aramaic, a potentially deeper connection to this . Neal also offers a video on YouTube to guide you through the practice.
