Far from being just a series words that are designed just to bring comfort, the Lord's Prayer as given by Jesus to his disciples makes extraordinary claims, topples every earthly power, and proclaims God's reign over all things in heaven and on earth. In this book the author recaptures the urgency and transformational nature of the prayer, revealing once again its remarkable, world-upending power. Step by step, phrase by phrase, the author explains what the words of possibly the most famous prayer in the world mean and how we should pray them.
The Lord's Prayer is the most powerful prayer in the Bible, taught by Jesus to those closest to him. We desperately need to relearn its power and practice. The Prayer that Turns the World Upside Down shows us how.
