An excellent resource for the personal prayer life of the adult Christian.
A practical, straightforward book showing readers how the Lord’s Prayer can be a powerful spiritual guide for daily living. Drawing from her own life as a theologian and young mother, Josephine Lombardi fills the pages with personal reflections, spiritual meditations, and insightful anecdotes. This book is ideal for a deeper understanding of Christianity’s most famous prayer.
Demonstrating God’s relationship to us as one of intimacy, trust, and connectedness, the book advocates the Lord’s Prayer as a source of restoration and hope for families and society alike.
Each section analyzes a line of the Lord’s Prayer, followed by questions and short prayers, resulting in a book with wide appeal for anyone, but especially catechists, retreat leaders, and religion teachers.
