When his disciples wanted to know how to pray, this is the prayer Jesus taught them. The Lord's Prayer is for many people a mere collection of words that has been repeated so often that is has lost its meaning. It is in danger of becoming a repetition devoid of genuine faith. Renowned theological William Barclay delineates and explicates this ancient prayer, showing us the depth of each phrase. He considers both its historical background and its application to our world today. This is part of the William Barclay Library.
