The Complete Guide to the Prayers of Jesus
This book is the only comprehensive guide to the prayer life of Jesus. While many Christians only know of the Lord’s Prayer, we learn in Janet’s book that prayer was essential to him and that he had a rich, fertile prayer life while he was on earth. With warmth and keen insight, Janet takes you on an engaging, vivid journey through the 14 recorded prayers Jesus prayed as well as his teachings on prayer and his prayer practices. No matter our backgrounds or ideas about how, when, and why we should talk to God, we can learn from Jesus’s simple, vulnerable examples. As we follow his example of prayer and take our problems to him, we will, like him, grow closer to the Father and find strength for our everyday challenges. Bethany House Publishers, 2018.

More than two thousand years ago the apostle Paul urged Christians to pray without ceasing.

We’d love to engage constantly with God but how can we, when we spend so much of our days just racing from one thing to another?
