A Prayer in Breehah

In the Holy Bible, in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 6: verses 9–13 are known as The Lord’s Prayer, or the Our Father or the Pater Noster. My pastor once noted that there is nothing in the Lord’s prayer that precludes anyone of any faith from using it in their prayer life.  For that reason I decided to translate it into Breehah to see how it goes.  It was an interesting exercise. I’ve placed it below and given a breakdown of the translation below that. I’ve also made a Tiny Cards deck [link] to help you if you felt like you wanted to try and memorize it. Also, if you look on the introduction page for the Breehah language [link], you will see that I’ve put up links to a Breehah-English dictionary as well as one for English to Breehah.  The dictionary pages are a work in progress, but you might enjoy looking through them.
