A short thought as we approach the sacrament on the Sabbath day.
During the sacrament prayers, the priest acts as voice for the entire congregation. Thus the plural pronouns throughout: "We ask thee...," "That they may...," "That he has given them..."
One simple way to increase the sacrament's power to draw me to the Savior personally is to review the prayers and replace those plural pronouns with personal, singular pronouns: "I ask thee...," "That I may...," "That he has given me..."
In October of 1995, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland taught:
Anything we do often is at risk of becoming meaningless ritual. Partaking of the Sacrament ought not be meaningless ritual.
