This Time It’s Personal

Lord's Prayer

by Dan

In our small group gathering this past Sunday, we considered the Lord’s Prayer.  This is a prayer that many people in the group have said thousands of  times in their lives and for others it is a relatively new prayer–that’s one of the things I love about Living Waters, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you have a place in the community!

As we looked at the different lines of the prayer, we considered how these can and do relate to our own experiences and to our own lives.  At the end of our time together, we shared what had struck us as we worked through the prayer.  One of the participants said, “I have known this prayer all my life, but for the first time, it feels personal.”

Ancient prayers that capture who we are, that embrace us, that speak to us, that speak for us.  That’s what we’re up to at Living Waters.
