When Danielle Shroyer went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, she had one goal: to enjoy God, fully present to the presence of the Holy. Tired of her own wordy prayers and theological thoughts as a pastor, she wanted her prayers to be quiet listening rather than incessant speaking. When the Lord s Prayer came to mind in the midst of her silence, she welcomed the words of Jesus as the only words she needed. Thus began a rhythm that lasted for two weeks of pilgrimage, as she traveled, praying only the words Jesus taught. Immersed in a sense of place, she felt the prayer coming to life in new and unexpected ways.

The Lord s Prayer has remained with us for two thousand years for many reasons. Here it returns to its place of origin, carried deep in the heart of a pilgrim traveler as she walks where Jesus walked and discovers within its words the depth, beauty and truth of the One who prayed them first.

Danielle Shroyeris an author, speaker, and blogger. She serves as the Theologian-in-Residence at Journey Church, one of the first independent emerging churches in the country, where she also pastored for eight years. Danielle is also the author of"The Boundary Breaking God: An Unfolding Story of Hope and Promise." A graduate of Baylor University and Princeton Theological Seminary, she speaks often on issues of theology, faith, church leadership, culture, and story. She has written for"Patheos," "The Hardest Question," and"Immerse"magazine, and she blogs Danielle lives with her husband and two children in Dallas, Texas.
