Overview

Discernment is decision-making that begins and ends with God, according to Braun, and following Gods will is a gift from God worked through the Holy Spirit, as is faith itself. So it makes sense that the Lord's Prayer, introduced at a time of transition in Jesus' life and that of his disciples, provides a means for Christians of every age to faithfully work through challenging and confusing times in their lives.

Using the petitions of the Lord's Prayer as her framework and offering insights from her own experience of praying at life's crossroads and being privy to the prayer lives of others, the author leads readers into deeper awareness of God's will in their lives — a will that propels Christians to service.
