Even in today's post Christian society the Lord's Prayer remains widely known. Its beauty is that it can be understood by a child, but has tremendously profound lessons for those of us who investigate it more deeply.

One of the most helpful and compelling treatments of the Lord's Prayer. Opens up the riches of Christ's teaching and motivates the believer to a deeper and more thoughtful prayer life. Encourages the reader to worship in prayer by revering God's name, desiring God's kingdom, and desiring God's will. This worship then moves to seeking God's provision, pardon, and protection. Highly recommended.
