Approach prayer as a delight, not a duty.
Prayer can be a struggle, and sometimes we don't think it'll make a difference, or we rely on ourselves, or we're just too busy. Even if we do pray regularly, it can feel too much like a duty, and not enough like a delight.
J. D. Grear reveals how prayer was a non-negotiable daily staple in the life of Jesus, more essential to Him than eating or sleeping, and therefore why we must pray as well. He teaches 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.
Providing 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; it’s 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).”
