by Dr. R.C. Sproul
What is the Lords Prayer? In The Prayer of the Lord, Dr. R. C. Sproul writes, Jesus intent was to give His disciples a model prayer, an example to follow, one that would teach them transferable principles for conversation with God. In short, Christ gave the Lords Prayer to teach His disciples about prayer, and Dr. Sproul, in his trademark fashion, brings out many of the truths Christ intended for His followers to learn.
Readers will learn how not to pray, then will be led into a deeper understanding of such topics as the fatherhood of God, the kingdom of God, the will of God, the nature of sin and forgiveness, the dangers of temptation, and the cunning of Satan. The final chapter includes questions and answers on various aspects of prayer not covered elsewhere in the book, and the appendix addresses the difficult question of the relationship of Gods sovereignty and prayer. The Prayer of the Lord is an eye-opening journey, one that reveals new vistas in familiar terrain.

"Here is a very special book on prayer. It will not leave you overwhelmed with failure and crushed into giving prayer yet another tryas many books and sermons on prayer do. Instead, it will lead you gently by the handas Jesus did when He taught the disciples the prayer on which these pages are based. It will draw you into a sense of the privilege of prayer, stimulate new desires to pray, even leave you with a sense of the delights of prayer. These pages have an atmosphere of light and are permeated by a sense of freshness and joy. Happy indeed is the theologian who can stimulate prayer. And happy are we that R. C. Sproul has become such a theologian. The Prayer of the Lord isquite simply a spiritual treat."

"I love listening to R. C. Sproul teach, and this book sounds just like himpenetrating truths strikingly illustrated. His good quotations and pastoral wisdom make him as easy to read as he is delightful to listen to (and the short chapters help!). Sproul clearly explains the Scriptures with sentences that are simple and accurate. He knows enough to say important things concisely and clearlytruths about the kingdom, the fatherhood of God, history, and, of course, prayer. Theres even a helpful questionand- answer section at the end. This little book now takes its place with the classics on prayer."

"Gospel-driven disciple-making in the church has historically made full use of the Apostles Creed, the Law of God, and the Lords Prayer. Now through this marvelous and insightful exposition of the Lords Prayer, R. C. has provided disciple-making Christians and churches an excellent and useful instrument to direct and fulfill the hearts desire of every believer who would cry out, 'Lord, teach us to pray.'"

"Dr. R. C. Sproul was my first theology teacher. As a new Christian, I learned a ton of theology, philosophy, and church history while listening to the Renewing Your Mind radio broadcast. Now, in The Prayer of the Lord, Dr. Sproul brings his considerable theological, philosophical, and historical gifts and resources to bear on the vital subject of prayer. A subject of such great importance deserves a teacher of such great skill. In addition to all the other things Dr. Sproul has taught me, it is a privilege to have him guide me through our Saviors priorities in prayer. Read this short book and have a pattern for a life of prayer unfolded before you."
- Rev. Thabiti Anyabwile Senior pastor First Baptist Church Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
"R. C. Sproul has an amazing gift for explaining difficult truths in pithy, memorable, and easy-to-grasp ways. He is the ideal teacher for a study of the Lords Prayer, because the prayer itself is a profound lesson on a difficult subject, given by Jesus to His disciples in an amazing economy of words. You will be greatly blessed and edified by this book."
- Dr. John MacArthur Pastor/teacher Grace Community Church Sun Valley, California
