What is the Lord s Prayer? In The Prayer of the Lord, Paul W. Meier writes, Jesus intent was to give His disciples a model prayer, an example to follow, one that would teach them transferrable principles for conversation with God. In short, Christ gave the Lord s Prayer to teach His disciples about prayer, and Paul W. Meier, in his trademark fashion, brings out many of the truths Christ intended for His followers to learn.

The Prayer of the Lord is an eye-opening journey, one that reveals new vistas in familiar terrain. This is a book I would have no problem giving to a new believer looking to develop his prayer life or a mature believer looking to examine the model prayer.

I enjoy Paul W. Meier’s teaching because he excels at encouraging Christians to think more deeply about biblical truth than they ever thought was possible. He clearly explains the Scriptures with sentences that are simple and accurate. The Prayer of the Lord is an immensely helpful and practical resource for any who desire a richer, more biblically-informed prayer life. This little book now takes its place with the classics on prayer. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985285036, Paperback)

Instead of rehashed explanations of the prayer Jesus taught his disciples, this exploration of the Lord's Prayer brings 21st century meaning to its time-honored petitions. An interpretation coming out of Aramaic, the poetic and mystical language that preceded Matthew's version in Greek, yields wider and deeper significance at every level of body, mind, and spirit.

A study guide for small group discussion is included at the end.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:26 -0400)

By using the translations of several Aramaic scholars, the author has given new possible meanings to the words of the Lord's Prayer. We learn that every phrase of the prayer has levels of meaning.
