Yawar men khoshaba lokhun, Our Father who art in Heaven,
Mutawun dunya b’ara d’mitakh, Hallowed be thy name,
Rakhmah akhita men yikhun, Thy kingdom come,
Lokhun kahisi khubura d’yunan, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven,
Ashumun min arain khayyum, Give us this day our daily bread,
Khulan men gulekhetin abhar, And forgive us our trespasses,
Dunya pulat n’an men khayyum, As we forgive those who trespass against us,
Bayulun men m’od khubakhetlun, And lead us not into temptation,
L’yayulun b’khazayakh min shukran, But deliver us from evil. Amen.


As Mathew 6:9-13 says, “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name… “

Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen

As Assyrians, we have a rich history of faith and culture. Our language and our traditions have survived even through the worst of times. We have been through so much over the centuries: invasions, assassinations, massacres… And yet we are still here.

We are survivors.

Our people have been persecuted for centuries, but they have never lost their faith in God or in their homeland. In fact, many Assyrians consider their homeland—modern-day Iraq—to be part of Eden: the place where Adam was created by God and Eve was born from his rib. They believe that it is their duty to protect this land because it is holy ground.

The Assyrian Church of the East has helped us keep our identity alive for over 1,600 years now by passing down our language, our customs, and our beliefs from generation to generation. The church also provides support services such as healthcare and education for Assyrians who live outside of Iraq or Iran (where most Assyrians live). It’s an important part of keeping our culture alive!
