Prayer brings us into God's sanctuary. True prayer has requirements, and Jesus has given one model for all our prayers. Line by line, Hoeksema analyses, explains, and applies the principles found in Jesus' prayer. The reader is taught that prayer is given by the Spirit of God and that he must pray in a God-honouring way. The author stresses how prayer is thanksgiving to God, reflecting fellowship with the heavenly Father.

"This book contains eleven expository sermons on the Lord's Prayer, preached by Herman Hoeksema, the founding father of the Protestant Reformed Churches of America. These sermons were first preached as a series over the radio in the early 1940s and because of their popularity they were later published in book form. Let me quote a portion from the first petition in order to whet your spiritual appetite to want to read this book for yourselves. 'Hallowed be thy name' is concerned with the glory of God. Hoeksema writes, 'We must not overlook this position: for it teaches us at once that the chief and only purpose of all things is the glory of God, and that the desire for the realisation of this purpose should be uppermost in our hearts and minds and should occupy, therefore, the first place in all our prayers' (p. 37). Hoeksema also explains the spiritual disposition necessary in the heart of the believer in order to make these petitions, which makes these sermons also very devotional" (Singapore).
