The Construction of the "I" in the Lord's Prayer : A Social-constructive Discourse Analysis

NYLUND, JAN LU (2016) Praxis and Practice in Theology
Abstract
This paper addresses how the “I” of the praying individual is constructed in the interaction with the divinity in the praying of the Lord’s Prayer. This approach draws on social-constructive theory on identity formation and developmental psychology and a close reading of the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6 and the Sermon on the Mount.

It is the assertion of this paper that a discourse analysis of the Lord’s Prayer that takes into account the social and psychological processes that are instigated and put into motion in the interaction with the divine help us understand how the spiritual formation and personal development of the praying individual takes place.
