The Bible teaches us to pray without ceasing, but many Christians struggle with prayer. Is there a right way to pray? How should we address a holy God? Does prayer really change things? Even Jesus’ disciples understood there was something lacking in their prayer life after they observed Jesus in prayer. When Jesus taught His disciples to pray, He gave them a model of prayer as an example to follow in conversation and communion with God.
In The Prayer of the Lord, a new edition of a classic book, Dr. R.C. Sproul helps us understand how to pray according to the pattern Jesus set for us. Each chapter focuses on a single line of the Lord’s Prayer, shedding light on God’s holiness and our need to humbly depend on Him. As adopted children of God, Dr. Sproul reminds us of the unspeakable privilege of prayer—to call upon our heavenly Father.
“Prayer is not a conversation between peers; it is not a fireside chat among equals. This is the creature speaking to his sovereign Creator.”
