Jesus gave his disciples the Lord’s Prayer as both a pattern to be followed and a form to be used, argues Pink, to teach us “the manner and method of how to pray and the matters for which to pray.” Pink preferred to call it the “The Family Prayer” and, while warning against empty repetition, maintained that it was important for believers to use it regularly. “In the opinion of this writer, it ought to be reverently and feelingly recited once at every public service and used daily at family worship.” Learn about the significance of the Lord’s Prayer and how it can revolutionize your prayer life today.

Author Bio

A. W. Pink (1886–1952) pastored churches in the United States and Australia for most of his working life. At the age of 24, Pink experienced an evangelical conversion and crossed the Atlantic from Great Britain to study at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. But after only six weeks, he left to take up a pastoral ministry during which he found his way to a strictly Calvinistic position in theology.

In 1922, Pink produced a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide. Pink devoted his life to the study and exposition of the Scriptures and became the author, also under the name Arthur Walkington Pink, of numerous books which the Banner of Truth Trust began publishing after Pink’s death.

Articles, books, tracts, and pamphlets, including the notable Exposition of Hebrews and The Nature of God, can be found in the A. W. Pink Collection (40 vols.). Also available from Logos are The Godhood of God, Why Four Gospels?, The Divine Inspiration of the Bible, and The Law and the Saint.
