Rather, we ought to consider it a realistic help to us in establishing our own prayer lives. As Christians we must be committed to seeing prayer become a central part of our daily walk with Christ. Prayer shouldn’t be supplemental - it should be fundamental. In this series Alistair Begg explores what it means to use the Lord’s Prayer purposefully, seeking to understand then apply the principles it teaches.
