The prayer Jesus taught us, commonly known as "the Lord's Prayer", is an integral part of the spirituality of millions of Christ-followers across the world. While many have memorised the prayer, how many of us have thought it through. And prayed it through so that it becomes, not just a prayer, but a life-shaper. This little book takes the reader on a journey of spiritual discovery and growth.
