:21 Seconds To Change Your WorldFinding God's Healing and Abundance Through PrayerBy Dr. Mark RutlandISBN:978-0-7642-1770-8Christian Living/PrayerRetails for $14.99ABOUT:When Dr. Mark Rutland couldn't find the words to pray, he turned to the Lord's Prayer. Through it he reconnected with God and found comfort, hope and healing. In this book he reveals how your soul can be renewed in the 21 seconds it takes to pray these words of Jesus. IMPRESSION:Prior to reading this book, I was already very familiar with The Lord's Prayer, but not at all Psalm 23. I had heard it read by my Pastor at my Grandparent's funerals but never really understood it. The Lord's Prayer was one of the very first prayers I learned as a child and it has stuck with me my whole life. I recite it often, but not as often as I should, and I've realized I have been guilty of mindlessly praying it without really breaking it down to understand what it is I was praying. That's where this book comes in handy! In this book, Dr. Mark Rutland explains how remarkable the historical connections between Jesus and King David were. Ironically David wrote Psalm 23 1,000 years before Jesus was born, which is very similar to The Lord's Prayer that Jesus spoke. When paired side by side, you can see how they flow together. ---------The Lord's PrayerOur Father who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name.Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our debts, as we forget our debtors.And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.Amen. --------------------Psalm 23The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.He marketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. ----------Similarities:Our Father who art in heavenThe Lord is The Lord is my shepherdOur fatherHe leadeth me in the paths of righteousnessLead us not into temptationMy cup runneth overGive us this day our daily breadFor his name's sakesHallowed be thy nameDeliver us from evilYea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evilForeverForeverThe incredible discovery aside, main purpose of this book is to encourage you to pray The Lord's Prayer multiple times a day, as often as possible. By saturating your life in prayer, you can change your life. You can beat depression. You can beat temptations. You can restore your life and heal with this prayer. It only takes 21 seconds out of your day to recite it one time. These are considered to be medicines of the soul. I found this book to be very exciting to read. I love learning new things and could sense the author's excitement too. Perfect book for those who are spiritually lost. *FTC Disclaimer: This book was sent to come complimentary by Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.*
Many of us have recited both the Lord's Prayer as well as Psalms 23 many times in our lives, but how often do we really think about the words we are saying? Mark Rutland presents both of these familiar texts in depth as well as presenting amazing stories of people who's lives were changed as they applied both of these verses to their lives. At under 200 pages, this book is a very quick read but Rutland does an amazing job presenting information without bombarding the reader with too much technical details. The book is divided into two parts dedicated to David as the author of the 23rd Psalm and to Jesus as the author of the Lord's Prayer, as well as showing the parallels between the two. Each line of their scriptures is then broken down and explained in layman's terms. Rutland then shows how now only are there parallels between David and Jesus, but also between the 23rd Psalm and the Lord's Prayer. I liked this book and I found much of the information interesting. My own complaint is that I am of the belief that Jesus meant exactly what he said, we should pray "like" the Lord's Prayer. I think when we just recite his example, or the 23rd Psalm, it becomes routine and habit and the true meaning is left out. Even if it's just 21 seconds, I feel those 21 seconds should be used to wholeheartedly speak with God in the way Christ suggested, not recite his example. Other than that complaint, however, I do recommend this book. *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In the end, it's not just about saying the prayers--it's about getting to know the Lord of the prayers.My Review: Sometimes in our very busy lives, we forget to prayer. Something so simple and profound yet so quiet that we forget about it. We forget that prayer is our first line of defense against the enemy. Prayer is our greatest weapon and our ONLY weapon. The author examines The Lord's Prayer as well as the 23rd Psalm. He takes them apart and looks at each word, words or phrases and explains their meanings. He gives a very thorough study on these and explains how to apply them to your everyday life. The author has a very well researched book here and through the personal stories that he shares in the book he hopes to get us to look at these two prayers more closely and apply it to our prayer lives.**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
This wonderful book was a complete surprise to me. I really didn't think the author could possibly come up with enough material to write an entire book about The Lord's Prayer. I have been more or less under the mistaken impression that it was only an example of how we should pray. I'll be the first to admit that sometimes my prayers wander off into the land of me, me, me. At other times, I feel as if, "I have nothing to say today." I never considered the possibility of adopting this as a before meal prayer, and taking the time to say it many times a day. While I haven't starting saying it before all my meals, it's become my first thing in the morning prayer, and at least once during the day. When I realized how much this book had to offer, I slowed down to absorb smaller portions of it everyday. I have highlighted areas that I plan to go back to and spend more time on again. I can see why many people experienced healing with this. There's a sense of growing trust that comes with reciting this over and over again. There is more thought to how awesome God is, and even more of a desire to fully forgive others. All I can say is--read this!!! It will change your life.
I really got a lot form reading this book. Rutland goes through the Lord's Prayer and the 23rd Psalm in depth, discussing the importance of each word and line. He also gives brief biographies of Jesus and Kind David and shows the similarites and differences they had, and how their lives shaped the two prayers. I learned a lot from this in depth look at the Lord's Prayer and the 23rd psalm. Rutland uses his own personal stories and those from others he has helped to show the power of these prayers. I know I am going to try to say both a lot more often and look for positive changes in my life as the author found his life changed by reciting these prayers.
In the book 21 Seconds to Change Your World, Dr. Mark Rutland writes about his struggle during a dark time in his life and how praying the Our Father Prayer and the 23rd Psalm helped renew his walk with God and bring him out of the depression.Dr. Rutland uses personal illustrations and illustrations from others who have been impacted by praying the Our Father Prayer and the 23rd Psalm multiple times a day. He weaves the similarities and patterns found in both the Our Father Prayer and the 23rd Psalm and shows how they work hand in hand.I would highly recommend this book to enrich your prayer life and challenge you to pray more.
Marketed as a book on the Lord's prayer and how the 21 seconds it takes to say it can benefit us, I was surprised to discover it included the 23rd Psalm as well. Part one gives an introduction to their authors, Jesus and David. Part two is the substance of the book, where Mark Rutland breaks down the prayer and the Psalm phrase by phrase, and part three lists some ways we can use them in our lives. A worthwhile read for those in positions of leadership within the church, as well as for Christians in general.
I heard Dr. Rutland speak about this topic and it was powerful! I love praying scripture and praying the Lord's Prayer is now part of what I pray daily. Excellent read!
