Maybe you’ve never thought of the Lord’s Prayer in this way, but you should. It won’t take you long to discover that Bruce Green has lived and breathed this prayer for quite some time. He divides the model prayer into seven sections, and then dives in to connect the reader to transforming truths of the kingdom.
If prayer is a component of our spiritual armor, then Bruce Green has certainly equipped us for the battle. Let the reign of Jesus pour into your heart.
