I was very pleased this morning to find in my mailbox another translation of the "Internet Prayer" I wrote in Latin many years ago. This prayer is all over the internet.
A kind soul translated the prayer into …
Pangadi Bayu Tuglung King Internet:
O kipnuan king upaya at alan-anggang Dios,
king anyu Mu lelang Mu kami
at sinabi Mu kekami ing dulapan mi ya ing cayapan, ing catutuan, at ing caniwan,
lalu’t lalu na ing tagle cabanalan na ning Bugtung Mung Anak, Y Jesucristong Guinu mi,
itulut Mu, pagamu-amu mi Keka,
king kapamilatan nang San Isidro, Obispo at Doctor,
a sana king penandit ning pamaglayag mi king Internet
iyungyung mi la ding mata at gamat mi bucud mung king bague munie ligaya Keka
at pakibagayan mi la sana king mitmung lugud at kapakumbaban ding maldang caladwang kekaming akatalamitanan.
Kapamilatan na ning Cristong Guinu mi. Amen.
At the time I wrote the prayer, there was much talk about a "Patron Saint" of the Internet and many people were interested in St. Isidore of Seville. That is why he is invoked. But there is no reason why you could not invoke the help of any saint. Nothing is official yet, and even then we can pray to whom it pleases us.
I am always hoping to get new versions of this prayer. If you look at the list and see that your language is not represented, perhaps in your kindness you will work on a translation and share it with us!
Here is the English version:
A prayer before logging onto the internet:
Almighty and eternal God,
who created us in Thy image
and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful,
especially in the divine person of Thy Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech Thee,
that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor,
during our journeys through the internet
we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee
and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
