When You Pray: Making the Lord's Prayer Your Ownby Philip Graham Ryken
Christ's answer to His disciples' request has become the model prayer and still teaches us today, for through its beautiful simplicity the Lord's Prayer touches all of life. It expresses our need for salvation, our very dependence on our Heavenly Father for breath and bread, and our praise and thanks for all that He is and does. Its words are few, yet it is a prayer overflowing with treasures of wisdom and encouragement for your everyday life.
Philip Ryken looks at the power and truth within each phrase of the Lord's Prayer, draws them together with other biblical passages, and shows how you can make this prayer your own. His warm approach, examples, and illustrations will enrich your heart and strengthen your prayer life, for the more you study the Lord's Prayer, the better you are able to pray. And the more you pray, the more deeply you are drawn into communion with God.
