The 6 Best Lord’s Prayer Books to Add to Your Reading List


Lord’s Library editors assembled this list of the best Lord’s Prayer books to add to your reading list.

The Lord’s Prayer, often referred to as the “Our Father,” is one of the most recognized Christian prayers of all time. It can be found in Matthew 6:9-13: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

We are not necessarily meant to recite the prayer verbatim, but rather use it as a template or a framework for prayer in our daily lives. We should be focusing on the lessons and what the words mean, how we can better recognize and repent for our recurring sin, and ask God to guide us towards salvation.

In this way, our editors assembled this list of the best Lord’s Prayer books to consider reading. Perhaps you want to enhance your Bible study on the topic or you want to share some literature with someone close to you who might benefit. In either case, the titles below represent the most popular available for purchase on the web.

Note: We only included the best Lord’s Prayer books with a 4-star or better ranking and a minimum of 75 reviews.

The Lord’s Prayer: A Guide to Praying to Our Father

Author/Publisher: Wesley Hill

From the publisher: “The Lord’s Prayer has become so familiar to us that we don’t think about what we’re praying. We pray it, but do we actually believe it? Wesley Hill re-introduces the Lord’s Prayer. He shows us a God who is delighted to hear prayer. Petition by petition, in conversation with the Christian tradition, he draws out the significance of Jesus’ words for prayer today.”
