The Lord's Prayer by Martin Chemnitz

Most Christians say the Lord's Prayer often. Christians need to take care that they don't start just saying the words without thinking about what those words really mean! The Small and Large Catechisms of course are wonderful resources that expounds on the meaning of the Lord's Prayer. And this book by Martin Chemnitz is another valuable resource. He analyzes the petitions of the Lord's Prayer and helps the reader to get a fuller understanding of why we address God the way we do and why we pray what we do in this prayer. It's very easy to read and has many insights.
