thanksgiving prayer

Helwa! :thumbsup:

This is one of my favorite prayers of the Church. Do you know who is chanting it in this recording?

Quite nice, I must say. :slight_smile: Reminds me of in many ways of the “old” (read: now unfashionable) translations of many Syriac prayers. Ah well …

thanks so much but to be honest I don’t know who sing it
and dzheremi r u Arab to say Helwa ???

Haha. No, I’m not Arab, but I’ve picked up a few words here and there over the years. :slight_smile:

How beautiful!

dzhere where do u live? thx Mary

America. Why?

bcouz I thought u lived in country with Arab to learn arabic

Not really. There are lots of Arabs and Arabic-speaking non-Arabs in America. I actually learned the little bit of Arabic I know (from one year of classes, four years ago) from two non-Arab professors. One was a Syriac Christian from Iraq, and the other was an American who had lived in the Gulf for about 13 years and worked as a translator in Iraq. America is a weird place. We’re all mixed up over here. :smiley:

ok I love mix ppl lol
