Synopsis

Throughout the last 2000 years, the Lord's Prayer has been at the center of every form and rule of prayer among Christians. But many of us recite the Lord's Prayer. We have all heard it countless times, but when have we listened to it? This book will encourage readers to turn towards the words of the Lord's Prayer again, this time with their bodies, minds, hearts, and spirit, to listen rather than to say it.
