The phrases of the Lord's Prayer are among the most treasured words of Jesus, and Living and Praying the Lord's Prayer, an eBook by Peter Graves, opens Jesus' prayer so that Christians can live it and pray it. In uncomplicated prose, Graves first places the Lord's Prayer in context and then systematically proceeds through the prayer, gleaning truths and principles from the words of Jesus. Each chapter in Living and Praying the Lord's Prayer takes a phrase from the Lord's Prayer like "Hallowed be Thy name" and "Our Father who art in heaven" and, after expanding on the phrase's meaning and application to the lives of Christians, ends with scripture portions, study questions, and possible prayers that can all be used in group Bible studies. An Appendix at the end of the eBook has several suggestions for how to have group Bible studies.
Dr. Peter Graves is minister of Wesley Methodist Church, Cambridge, and chaplain to Methodist students at Cambridge University. He is internationally known for his ministry and has served as minister to some of Methodism's largest churches.
