The opening words of the Lord's Prayer have become so familiar that we often speak them without a thought, sometimes without any awareness that we are speaking at all. But to the disciples who first heard these words from Jesus, the prayer was a thunderbolt, a radical new way to pray that changed them and the course of history.
Far from a safe series of comforting words, the Lord's Prayer makes extraordinary claims, topples every earthly power, and announces God's reign over all things in heaven and on earth. In this groundbreaking new book, R. Albert Mohler Jr. recaptures the urgency and transformational nature of the prayer, revealing once again its remarkable, world-upending power. Step by step, phrase by phrase, The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down explains what these words mean and how we are to pray them.
The Lord's Prayer is the most powerful prayer in the Bible, taught by Jesus to those closest to him. We desperately need to relearn its power and practice. The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down shows us how.

Opinionated theological fluff
The sermon on the mount is profound as is the Lord's Prayer.
This title is an academic Christian theologic interpretation of this prayer within boundary conditions of all of the understandings or misunderstandings within the mainstream Christian religion.
I tried this title wishing to understand what Christian theologians understand of this prayer of most high.
There are some good material within but it is interspersed with rigid ideals.
Problem with this content is that its conclusions simply wrap you into that of theological understanding. Fact is it is more complex than that which is understood by theologic minds. Theologians try to corner God into this not that not that.
The heart understands what these words mean. Christ did not use a theological college to interpret his words or prayers.. he sermon-ed for the common man for his simple uneducated heart to understand.
Prayer is prayer as long as you are surrendering yourself communing with your father with all your heart..but firstly get a proper translation of the Lord's Prayer from the greek.
