Abstract
The thesis of this project is that the Lord's Prayer embodies a set of prayer principles which, when learned and practiced by followers of Christ, measurably enhance their practice of prayer. The research includes an eight-week, fourteen hour seminar/workshop that features the prayer principles from the Lord's Prayer in theory and in practice. A prayer survey given before and after the training measures changes in the prayer practice of the trainees. The trainees' use of prayer principles from the Lord's Prayer improves their daily practice of prayer twenty-eight percent which suggests that the thesis is correct.
