OUR PARENT in the Spirit World

SACRED is Your Name

Bring us your Chiefly Rules

May it happen in the way that is to You : GOOD

May it happen on EARTH 

In the same way as in The Spirit World !

Give us now

The FOOD we need this DAY

Strip us of our SINS

Give us back what we have lost

So the we the Slaves of Sin : may be with You again

Do not lead us into TEMPTATION

May we be WHOLE : away from things EVIL

Through your CHIEFLY Position is .......


And the GLORY

Forever and ever



Thank you : please comment : Love to All ANGELA

    Very meaningful prayer written in this way.


      THANKS ANDY ~ The Maoris are a very Spiritual People an their sincere belief in the Spirit World and their respect for Nature all fits neatly into Christianity where HEAVEN is the SPIRIT WORLD and they WORSHIP their (and our) CREATOR GOD. I love this translation of the Maori Lord's Prayer. The singing is beautiful and like the Welsh ~ all Maoris can sing in harmony ! Pleased you enjoyed it ~ Love ANGELA

          That is very beautiful Angela.wish I was there it sounds like an awesome experience.maybe someday, when my daughter gets older,she's only 7 ,but acts like she's already a teenager,sass and all.
          Enjoy your experience to its fullest. Love always Melissa

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks SISTER MELISSA ~ Maori Music is always very haunting and it reaches right to your SOUL. I love this version & setting. The ENGLISH translation is very spiritual and simplistic and reaches ones heart! NZ is a long way from everywhere and expensive : but everybody should come at least once in their lifetime. Fourteen would be a great age to bring your Daughter. Old enough to appreciate : Young enough to never forget! Love to both of you ANGELA XXXX
