Title
Communication Theory and Petitionary Prayer
Abstract

The thesis of this article contends, on the basis of the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6, that the petitionary role of prayer is as much designed for its effect upon the person praying as upon God. The article is a psychoexegetical study of the Lord's prayer with an analysis of the psychological and spiritual implications for Christian thought, behavior, and feeling regarding prayer's nature, objectives, function, and consequences.
