Check out this book review:
“Have you ever echoed the disciple’s request, ‘Lord, teach us to pray’? Could your own prayer life use some tweaking or, better yet, an infusion of power and purpose? Then join me in welcoming Janet McHenry’s new book The Complete Guide to the Prayers of Jesus: What Jesus Prayed and How It Can Change Your Life Today. Through a lifetime journey of drawing ear to God in prayer, McHenry lifts up more than a dozen different instances in the life of Jesus when he prayed intentionally–in times of praise, crisis, temptation, blessing, and provision. In this abundance of biblical teaching, we discover not only how to pray but also how to apply these scriptural principles to our own lives. This is the beauty of the author’s authentic stories of grappling with prayer in the trenches of marriage, parenthood, teaching, and writing–if she can do it, so can we! My favorite parts were her biblically based prayers that so beautifully concluded and summarized each chapter–I will be praying those even after I’ve finished the book. If you really want to ignite your prayer life, look no further than Jesus himself and let Janet McHenry’s wonderful new book be your guide.”
