Prayer can be a struggle. Sometimes we dont think it will make a difference, or we rely on ourselves, or were just too busy. And even if we do pray regularly, it can feel more like a duty than a delight.
J.D. Greear shows us how prayer was a non-negotiable daily staple in Jesus life, more essential to him than eating or sleeping, and therefore why we need to pray as well. He shows us how we can enjoy the same source of power as our Lord and the early church when we learn to just ask and depend on our heavenly Father as they did.
Giving specific practical tips for getting on with prayer in everyday life, this book leaves readers wanting to pray, rather than just feeling that they ought to.
In his introduction, Pastor J.D. says, Prayer is not a religious task to accomplish; its an invitation to lay your burdens down at Jesus feet, to share your heart with him, and to be with the one in whose presence is the fullness of joy and at whose right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16 v 11).
J.D. Greear is the Lead Pastor at Summit Church and former President of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Correction: On pages 89-90, the story about the prayer request for a sons karate tournament should be attributed to John Crist, whose joke it originally was. This citation was in an early draft but was lost during the editing process. It will be reinstated when the book is reprinted.
