How Shall We Pray?

discovery was announced today of two pieces of brown animal skin, inscribed in Hebrew with verses from the Book of Leviticus, found in the "refugee" caverns of Nachal Arugot (near the Dead Sea)

today's announcement reminded me of "yesterday's" announcement . . .

following are nonconsecutive passages from Codex III, Nag Hammadi codices (Coptic copy), the "Dialogue of the Savior" [not a translated title, but one created and appended well after the textual composition]

interpolations are in red brackets . . .


Judas [Thomas] said, "Behold! The governors [archons, authorities, planets] dwell above us, so it is they who will rule over us!"

The Lord said, "It is you who will rule over them! But when you rid yourselves of jealousy, then you will clothe yourselves in light and enter the bridal chamber."

*****

Matthew said, "Tell me, Lord, how the dead die and how the living live?"

The Lord said "You have asked me for a word [about that] which eye hath not seen, nor have I heard about it, except from you. But I say unto you, that when that which moves man is withdrawn he will be called 'dead' and when the living one sets free the dead one, he will be called the 'living.'"

*****

When the time of dissolution arrives, the first power of darkness will come upon you. [re-emergence of the Tiamat, or primal evil, in the endtimes]

Mariah said "What is the mustard seed like? Is it from heaven or earth?"

The Lord said "When the Father established the world for himself he left behind many things from the Mother of the All. Because of this he speaks and acts. [manifests, incarnates]

Judas said "You have said this to us from the mind of truth. When we pray, how shall we pray?"

The Lord said "Pray in the place where there is no woman."

Matthew said "He says to us 'Pray in the place where there is no woman.' and 'Destroy the works of femaleness' not because she is another [...] but so that the works will cease."

Mariah said "Will they never be destroyed?"

The Lord said "The Mother is the one who knows that the works of femaleness will dissolve and be destroyed in this place."

*****

Judas responded, saying, "Tell me, Lord, how it is that [...] which shakes the earth moves."

The Lord picked up a stone and held it in his hand, saying "What am I holding in my hand?"

He [Judas] said, "It is a stone."

He [the Lord] said to them, "That which supports the earth is that which supports the heaven. When a Word comes forth from the Greatness, it will come on what supports the heaven and the earth. For the earth does not move. Were it to move, it would fall. But it neither moves nor falls, in order that the First Word might not fail . . . [I]f one does not stand in the darkness, he will not be able to see the light.

  • Prayer of a thousand years.

    Luke 12:22-31) Then he said to his disciples: "On this account I say to YOU, Quit being anxious about YOUR souls as to what YOU will eat or about YOUR bodies as to what YOU will wear.
    23 For the soul is worth more than food and the body than clothing. 24 Mark well that the ravens
    neither sow seed nor reap, and they have neither barn nor storehouse, and yet God feeds them.
    Of how much more worth are YOU than birds? 25 Who of YOU by being anxious can add a cubit to his life span? 26 If, therefore, YOU cannot do the least thing, why be anxious about the remaining things?
    27 Mark well how the lilies grow; they neither toil nor spin; but I tell YOU, Not even Sol'o·mon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these.
    28 If, now, God thus clothes the
    vegetation in the field that today exists and tomorrow is cast into an oven, how much rather will
    he clothe YOU, YOU with little faith!
    29 So quit seeking what YOU might eat and what YOU might drink, and quit being in anxious suspense;
    30 for all these are the things the nations of the world are eagerly pursuing, but YOUR Father knows YOU need these things.
    31 Nevertheless, seek continually his kingdom, and these things will be added to YOU.

    2 Timothy 3:1-5) But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.

    2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers,
    disobedient to parents,unthankful, disloyal,
    3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,
    4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,
    5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

    (John 8:12) Therefore Jesus spoke again to them, saying: "I am the light of the world. He that follows me will by no means walk in darkness, but will possess the light of life."


    "All I really need is a song in my heart and love in my family, so that I can grow up big and strong, to take my place where I belong. For the Brothers and Sisters, love in my family."
    "Rise with the bluebird, shine. Rise and shine."
    ~Raffi on Broadway

    "Got a black magic woman."

    "Now, when I was just a little boy,
    Standing to my Daddy's knee,My poppa said, "Son, don't let the man get you Do what he done to me."
