What is prayer? What exactly does it mean? What does prayer accomplish? Dr. Rocco A. Errico answers these questions about prayer through this newly revised and expanded edition of his popular The Ancient Aramaic Prayer of Jesus: The Lord's Prayer. He focuses on the original Aramaic manuscripts, the ancient culture of the Middle East, and its Aramaic language of two thousand years ago. Errico presents definitions for words such as our Father, hallowed, daily bread, temptation, evil and amen from the linguistic and cultural viewpoint of the era. You will learn about the eight spiritual attunements within the prayer that strengthen your connection with God.
