What is the Lord’s 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 Lord’s 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.

I love listening to R.C. Sproul teach, and this book sounds just like him—penetrating 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 clearly—truths about the kingdom, the fatherhood of God, history, and, of course, prayer. There’s even a helpful question-and-answer section at the end. This little book now takes its place with the classics on prayer.

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 Savior’s priorities in prayer. Read this short book and have a pattern for a life of prayer unfolded before you.

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 Lord’s 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.
