Tom Wright on 'The Lord's Prayer':

"References to Jesus' own practice of private prayer are scattered throughout the Gospels and clearly reflect an awareness on the part of his first followers that this kind of private prayer - not simply formulaic petitions, but wrestling with God over real issues and questions - formed the undercurrent of his life and public work. The prayer that Jesus gave his followers embodies his own prayer life and his wider kingdom ministry in every clause."

There are many books about prayer, but this is the first by Tom Wright to cover all the key teachings and examples to be found in the New Testament.
