"There is inherent in the Lord's Prayer all the strength and compassion of our Father in heaven. There moves through it a beauty and serenity which no mortal man can fully explain. It reassures our hearts, strengthens our resolve, and lead us into personal contact with God, our Father."

An "ordinary man and a child of God", W. Phillip Keller shares with you what these Scriptures have meant to him.

Good response

User Review  - Ronald Ramsey - Christianbook.com
