The Nazarene Way Literal Translation:

“Father-Light essence of man, born of the Sun,

and Mother-water essence of woman, born of Ishtar,

First created El and Em, Beings of Knowledge and Wisdom,

To parent Humankind on Earth.”


From Ab comes Abyon, Father Most High: the Abyonites (Ebionites).

Ebion's Prayer:


"Father Most High, Your Light Blesses,

As does First Mother, Spirit of Water and Earth."


From Elohem, comes Father and Mother of Earth. Em-El cha sites:

"Melek-kai-Zadek of Salem" (Hebrews Chapter 7) was the leader of the Em-Elchasites;

"Melek" is Hebrew for "Kingdom"; Zadek" means "Righteous"; "Salem" means "Peace."


Em-El cha-Zedek of Salem's Prayer


"Father Most High Your Light of righteousness Blesses,

First Mother of Peace, Water and Earth, Blesses,

May the Kingdom of Peace of Em and El prevail."


From Natsar, (“one who preserves and protects”),

Nasa ("one who carries"),

zera (seed), Sar/Sarah (Prince/Princess),

comes Nasa-sarah-rene. (Nasaaraenes; Nazarenes, Nasareans, and Nazarites).


Jesus the Nazarene's Prayer


"Father-Mother Most High,

The Light of your Sun and the Water of your Heavens and Earth blesses all.

May your Kingdom of Righteousness and Peace

Come into the hearts and minds of men and women of Earth."


Final Version, Edited and approved by the Early Church Fathers


"Our Father in Heaven,

Blessed is your name,

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done

On 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 Yours is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory forever."
