When Jesus Christ was asked by His disciples how to pray, He taught them one prayer as the perfect model of communication with the Almighty. Two thousand years after it was first spoken, the Lord's Prayer continues to resonate for the contemporary Christian believer or spiritual seeker. "Meditations on the Lord's Prayer" is a richly illustrated gift book that explores some of the deep questions that the Lord's Prayer raises to those willing to seek its meaning.
The teachings of the Lord's Prayer--about the place of God's presence in our lives, the sacredness of His name, the necessity of forgiveness, the pull of temptation and the power of evil--are explored in pithy, thought-provoking meditations. Each is illustrated by an exquisite icon that helps readers deepen their understanding of the Lord's Prayer.
"Give us this daily bread" is illustrated, for instance, by the icon depicting the hospitality of Abraham. The icon recalls the visitation to Abraham and Sarah by the Holy Trinity in the form of three angels. They tell the aged couple that they will have a child, and add, "Is anything too wonderful for the Lord?" (Genesis 18:14) The icon is the work of contemporary iconographer monk Michael of Mount Athos, Greece.
For those who reflect on its profound meaning, the Lord's Prayer will help connect their innermost soul to the Creator, even as Christ taught.
