About the book

Bestselling, Respected Author and Pastor Mines the Riches of the Lord's Prayer

No prayer is better known--or more misunderstood--than the prayer Jesus provided in his Sermon on the Mount. Turning a keen eye to this much-loved topic, Dr. R. T. Kendall unlocks the transforming truths of what we now call the Lord's Prayer. With wisdom and depth, he offers thoughtful exposition on the life-changing revelations contained in each line of this amazing prayer, including:

• interpreting and praying in the will of God
• the purpose of the Lord's Prayer
• when to pray the Lord's Prayer
• how unanswered prayer can be a sign of God's favor
• misusing the Lord's Prayer
• why pray at all?
• and more

Readers will come away not only with a model for prayer, but with a revolutionary way to pray effectively while drawing closer to the Father.

My Thoughts

When I decided to review this book, I was reading numerous books from this same author.   Consequently, I got an overload of information from  R.T. Kendall on various subjects and couldn’t concentrate totally on this book.   I had to put it aside for a while (a bit too long I admit it) before coming back to it.  I am not in the habit of doing this but for this particular book it was a wise decision.  

This book is all about the Lord’s Prayer.   The author is decorticating the prayer that Jesus taught to his disciples and explains it beautifully. The author goes verse by verse and expand on the subject with each chapter throughout the book.  While going through this prayer you will learn to focus on God, discover God’s prayer list and be blessed at the same time.

The Lord’s Prayer is often repeated and sometimes we might have a tendency of saying it without really pondering on the words and how it impact our own life.   This book will remind you of the importance of the prayer and how your own life can be transformed through it.

If you want to have a new perspective for the Lord’s Prayer in 2011, I strongly suggest that you read this book from R.T. Kendall.  You will get new insights on a common prayer and get inspired to re-discover it and draw closer to God.
