The Lord's Prayer is a clear path into communion with God. When You Pray by Phil Ryken is a clear path into the Lord's Prayer. Anyone whose heart longs for God will find sure guidance here.
When You Pray is a model exposition of the model prayer -- clear but never clinical, instructive but never tedious, challenging but never crushing. It is thoroughly biblical and therefore wonderfully practical. Rykens patient unfolding of the Lords Prayer phrase by phrase simultaneously engages the mind, directs the will, warms the heart, andbest of allwill make you want to pray.
Written in a strongly devotional spirit and based on solid scholarship, Philip Rykens When You Pray: Making the Lords Prayer Your Own is a rare book. Martin Luther said that the Book of Psalms contains the whole Bible in a single book and the Lords Prayer summarizes the Psalms in a few words. Therefore, this pregnant portion of Scripture is a key that can unlock the entire Bible.
