Witsius explores the significance and usage of the Lord’s Prayer in this exposition. First of all, he examines the definition and history of prayer throughout the Old Testament. He then moves on to the practical and spiritual advantages of prayer, as well as motivations and physical aspects of prayer. Witsius finishes this volume with a thorough inspection of each line of the Lord’s Prayer, providing a helpful analysis and commentary of this revolutionary prayer of Christ.
