Taking Scripture Personally

The Bible contains prayers and canticles (songs) that give us words to pray and praise. Many, such as the Lord’s Prayer, the Magnificat, and the Canticle of Simeon, have become part of the common prayer of the church liturgy. Yet any of these may also give voice to our own joys, yearnings and struggles. We truly pray the Lord’s Prayer when we take each phrase and make it our own, finding its truth reflected in our beliefs, needs, fears and aspirations.  Read more about taking scripture personally here.
