The Lord's Prayer is a treasure trove for every Christian's spiritual journey.
Every day, Christians around the world recite the Lord's Prayer. But could we drink more deeply from this sacred gift? Author and Bible teacher Becky Harling thinks so—after immersing herself in the Our Father prayer, she has found herself more deeply and profoundly in love with Jesus and passionate about following Him. In this 6-week Bible study, Becky shares six life-changing invitations that Jesus offers every believer through this prayer. Jesus warmly invites us:
We are living in a time of increasing fear and depression, a time of disenchantment and disappointment. But there is healing for our souls in the Lord's Prayer. The Lord's Prayer not only teaches deep theology about our relationship with God but also about our relationship with others. Christians will come to repeat the Our Father prayer thoughtfully and lovingly. Join Becky Harling in reclaiming the beauty, boldness, and blessing offered to every believer through the Our Father prayer.
"For two thousand years, followers of Jesus have been echoing the words of Jesus' disciples: 'Lord, teach us to pray . . .' (Luke 11:1), and for two thousand years, the resurrected Christ has been responding with the familiar words of the Lord's Prayer. Deceptively simple, the prayer, as we learn to linger with it, coaxes us out into the wilds of the Spirit, where we find ourselves looking for seasoned guides who can help us negotiate the terrain. Fortunately, we have one here. Becky Harling masterfully shows us how the prayer Jesus gave us takes us into the infinite heart of our good God, transforming our lives in the process. I can't recommend this study highly enough."

"For much of my adult life, I have prayed the Lord's Prayer, thinking I understood what it meant. In this unique and multilayered study of each phrase of this profound prayer, Becky Harling challenged me to go deeper, to be more honest, to fully understand forgiveness, and to explore the power of real worship. This is a Bible study that will change your life and draw you closer to your Abba Father."

"Reconnect with the Lord's Prayer and accept the invitation to fully understand its meaning. Becky Harling unpacks six invitations within the prayer. Explore this beloved prayer between Father and Son. Elevate your prayer life as you model Jesus. Break away from reciting the prayer and embrace living the prayer as a daily offering. It's a beautiful experience."

"Have you ever finished praying the Lord's Prayer by heart, and realized you hadn't truly embraced the rich meaning of those words? And yet, when asked how to pray, this very prayer is Jesus' response. One reason I am so delighted with author Becky Harling's newest six-week study, Our Father, is that it takes us through each section of the Lord's Prayer, bringing great insight and clarity. In the process, we learn not only more about our unique relationship with our Father, but how to worship, surrender, ask, forgive, and live victoriously. For years now, my husband and I have prayed this prayer together as our day begins. We cling to each familiar yet powerful word, and find fresh life and direction. Walk through six weeks of Our Father with friends or alone, and watch your own prayer life blossom."

"Becky Harling's personal study Our Father is an emotionally resonant look at God as both the ideal of Fatherhood and Fatherhood on a personal and spiritual level. In this study, she guides the reader through navigating their own concept of fathers by sharing her own deeply affecting experiences. And then she spends the bulk of the time helping us wrestle with the question of 'If God is the perfect Father, what then?' This is a very powerful and emotional book that works best when the reader, small group members, or study participants are willing to wrestle with their own hearts and relationship with God."

"We have memorized it. We have recited it. We have hung it on our walls, but Becky Harling's brilliant book, Our Father, is an invitation to LIVE the Lord's Prayer in a way that transforms our hearts, minds, and lives."
