Prayer can be a challenge for many people. Christians often go through the motions, but are left wondering if their prayers are even heard, or if they matter. In Praying the Lord’s Prayer, Packer presents a powerful truth: that prayer is a natural activity between the Heavenly Father and his children. As Packer works through each phrase of the Lord’s Prayer, readers will begin to grasp the basic principles and guidelines of prayer set out by Christ and strengthen their own prayer life.
