No prayer is better known-or misunderstood-than the prayer Jesus taught His disciples. The words, though simple, can transform the way you pray and live.
With remarkable insight, wisdom and depth, respected minister Dr. R. T. Kendall uncovers the transforming truths contained within each line of this familiar prayer, including when and why to pray the Lord’s Prayer and how unanswered prayer can be a sign of God’s favor.
Not only will you find a new model for prayer, but you will experience a revolutionary way to draw closer to your heavenly Father.
In my own words:
The Lord’s Prayer: Insight and Inspiration to Draw You Closer to Him is a slow read, but not because the writing is dry. In fact the writing is far from dry. There are a lot of evident truths revealed, which need to be chewed upon before proceeding on to the next.
Kendall breaks down the Lord’s Prayer into individual pieces. By giving each petition the special attention it deserves, Kendall shows us what exactly Jesus meant in His response to his disciples’ plea to teach them how to pray. Scripture, as well as insight from past theologians, and the author’s own personal experience allows the reader to see beyond prayer as a whole and deep into the layers.
There is quite the little gem in the final chapter. In a time when grudges abound and bitterness destroys relationships, I am pleased to see Kendall take a chapter and delve into the power of forgiveness.
Whether you are curious about the deeper meaning of the Lord’s Prayer or you are looking for a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with God, I highly recommend this book.
