For over thirty years now I have believed that the main purpose of the Lord's Prayer was not give to us as a prayer to be quoted daily or weekly. I also do not believe the main purpose was to serve as a model prayer. Although both these terms are used in this writing because the reader knows exactly what is meant by the use of these terms. This book in no way demeans anyone's use of the Lord's Prayer. My previous congregation quoted it weekly and my current congregation quotes it weekly. The aim of this book is to encourage the reader to look at the Lord's Prayer from a new perspective and, when finished reading, think, "That's a possibility. I'm going to think about that some more." Let's think about this together, shall we?
