The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down

A New Book by R. Albert Mohler Jr.

The Lord’s Prayer has been domesticated and tamed, turned into a safe series of comforting words and made familiar by repetition. In reality, this is the prayer that turns the world upside down, toppling every earthly power and announcing God’s reign over all things, in heaven and on earth. The Lord’s Prayer is one of the most explosive paragraphs in human history.

Praise for The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down

“A Seminary president writing a book on prayer.  Now that is novel! But this book is not about any prayer.  This is about our Lord’s model prayer.  And it is penned by an earnest practitioner of prayer who believes that seminaries and churches are radically changed be the practice or fervent prayer.  For a guide to future fruitfulness, purchase this book.  To be a recipient of the benedictions of our God, read and practice this volume.”

Paige Patterson
President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Dr. Albert Mohler’s insights never fail to amaze and enlighten. He is a gifted expositor with an uncanny ability to see and explain the big picture, yet with a keen eye for detail. His ability to distill complex theology in understandable language is unsurpassed. And all those qualities shine brightly in this book.”

“In The Prayer that Turns the World Upside Down, Albert Mohler beautifully and brilliantly expounds the biblical meaning and theological depth of the Lord’s Prayer for 21st-century believers. Providing readers with thoughtful insights regarding the meaning and importance of prayer, as informed by scripture, theology, and church history, this readable and accessible volume invites readers to consider afresh the connection with and relationship between faithful prayers, kingdom-focused praise, the glory of God, and the gospel of grace. Church leaders and laypersons alike will be encouraged and challenged in their understanding of prayer, biblical piety, and theologically-informed worship. Highly recommended!”

David S. Dockery
President, Trinity International University/Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“For atheists not in a foxhole, prayer is nonsense. For religious people, it is either a liturgical act or a private devotion. But in this fascinating study of the Lord’s Prayer, Al Mohler shows how revolutionary genuine, radical, Gospel-focused prayer can be. Highly recommended!”
