Humans compose prayers all the time, most are not found in the Bible. Go to any Protestant Church and you will usually hear the words “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory…” Not in the Bible in connection with the Lord’s prayer, however most Protestants would be shocked to find out that the addition to the Lord’s prayer that they almost always include comes from an older Catholic Liturgical prayer that the priest would pray silently.

Along with private interpretation, (without the guidance of the Church that Jesus founded and commissioned to guard the teachings he gave the Apostles) the idea that nothing that is not mentioned or can be “proven” by the Bible leads many people into a warped understanding of the Faith.
