Summary

The Lord's Prayer has nurtured Christians throughout the ages. Yet today it is oftenwell known--but little understoodfrequently repeated--but seldom contemplatedmuch loved as Jesus's model prayer--but attacked by some for naming God Father.Martin Luther said, To this day I am still nursing myself on the Lord's Prayer like a child and am still eating and drinking of it like an old man without getting bored with it. The Lord's Prayer can still offer such nourishment.
