"In Living the Lord's Prayer, Father Albert Haase follows the lines of this greatest of all prayers, showing how the ideas have been understood by great people of faith in the past and revealing how they are useful for our spiritual formation today. With Haase's counsel plus the wisdom of this great cloud of witnesses that includes Francis of Assisi, Martin Luther, Therese of Lisieux and others, you'll discover how God can use this prayer to shape your very soul." (Phil Miglioratti, Praying Pastor Blog, May 25, 2009)
"Haase's book is a refreshingly practical phrase-by-phrase examination of the prayer that pays attention to not only what the prayer says, but also how it looks when lived out in the life of a disciple. Each chapter concludes with several reflection questions and gospel passages for meditation and prayer, making this book a perfect choice for small-group as well as individual study. Haase is concerned for the spiritual health of his readers, and writes with great care, not only to make his message clear, but to articulate it in a way that is artful and compelling. He maintains an effective balance between theology, application, and illustration, making this book not only a useful tool, but a beautiful one as well." (Jennifer Monroe, The Phantom Tollbooth (tollbooth.org), June 2009)
"His style and message really engaged my spirit. He draws from a comprehensive library of Christian writings, from the early church fathers to the contemporary Mother Teresa. He often refers to the life and writings of St. Francis and his train of followers but also incorporates other modes of spirituality, including Ignatian, Othodox and Protestant." (Evelyn B., Book Bargains and Previews (bookbargainsandpreviews.com), June 2009)
"Haase views this prayer of Jesus as a road map for spritual formation and as a handbook to holiness. Readers interested in their relationship with God and the world will be challenged and find refreshment and renewal in Living the Lord's Prayer." (C. Brian Smith, Christian Retailing, May 4, 2009)
"The book reads as a reflection, intricate yet enlightening. Recommend to any Christian who seeks to understand and appreciate more deeply this prayer gift from Christ." (Kathleen Samuelson, CBA Retailers + Resources, May 2009)
"If your image of God needs healing, this book was written for you. Living the Lord's Prayer is a gift, a bright offering for today's seekers and disciples. It is a truly worthy guide for both prayer and study, embellished with theological, literary and contemporary reflection. I absolutely love it and joyfully recommend it." (Macrina Wiederkehr, O.S.B., author of Seven Sacred Pauses and A Tree Full of Angels)
"I have rarely been inclined to describe a book as superb, but in this case, no other word will do. Living the Lord's Prayer is so rich in story and holy conversation that, in conjunction with Scripture, it could make an almost complete library for those seeking authentic Christian formation." (Phyllis Tickle, compiler of The Divine Hours and author of The Great Emergence)
"I commend my dear friend Father Albert for writing this book on the Lord's Prayer, and I commend his book to you, the reader, to relish it, ponder it, pray it, and live it." (From the foreword by Gerald L. Sittser, professor of theology, Whitworth University, and author of Water from a Deep Well and A Grace Disguised)
"Living the Lord's Prayer is not, actually, about only the Lord's Prayer―it is about how we conceive of God, and what happens when we encounter God. Many of us have repeated the Lord's Prayer so often that we have ceased to notice what we're saying. Albert Haase's insights and reflections will help you not just understand the Lord's Prayer more deeply; this book will also help you pray those words that Jesus taught with more attentiveness." (Lauren Winner, Duke Divinity School, author of Girl Meets God)
"Albert Haase combines a deep understanding of theology, keen insights into the human condition and observations about his own life's journey into a highly readable and helpful tool for personal devotion. Living the Lord's Prayer will help you deepen your relationship with Christ as you reflect on the prayer he taught us. You'll find yourself returning to this book after the first reading (as I have), and finding fresh insights every time you do so." (Sean Herriott, host of Morning Air(TM) on Relevant Radio)
"I have rarely been inclined to describe a book as superb, but in this case, no other word will do. Living the Lord's Prayer is so rich in story and holy conversation that, in conjunction with Scripture, it could make an almost complete library for those seeking authentic Christian formation."

"Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Father Albert Haase says this is not just a prayer, but a vow to fulfill, and a lifestyle to live out. First, the word "Our" is inclusive. We have to realize there is more than one of us. "Father" is a word of relationship, so this is a family life and we have obligations to live as a family. The rest of the prayer requires similar action on the part of all Christians--who else is going to hallow His name? Who is going to make His kingdom come or see that His will is done on earth? It requires initiative, it requires being hospitable, it requires caring more for others than ourselves, and most of all, it requires listening to Our Father to hear what He wants us to do.
Father Albert writes with an easy-to-understand manner, which makes it tough to ignore what's being said in this prayer. Like Mark Twain said: It ain't those parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand
I would encourage you to read it and let those words inspire you as you said them.
