Product Description

There are many books about prayer, but the best book we have on prayer is the Word Himself. In "The Heart of Prayer," Jerram Barrs takes a closer look at Jesus' practice and teaching about prayer. He shows how Jesus prayed during times of temptation, struggle and ministry, and how these times of prayer sustained and comforted Him to accomplish His purposes. You'll be encouraged to continue in prayer, keeping your eyes on Him, rather than your own efforts.

Publisher's Description

Jesus’ words on prayer are the clearest, most uplifting, and most healing ever spoken. He knows full well the inadequacy and weakness of our prayer life; he sees our cold hearts and lack of zeal; yet his words on prayer are a solace and support, rather than a condemnation and rebuke.

Author Bio

Jerram Barrs is Professor of Christianity and Contemporary Culture and Resident Scholar of the Francis Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary.

Editorial Reviews

I can't think of anyone better than Jerram Barrs to write on the subject of prayer. Dive into "The Heart for Prayer" and take a cool swim in the wisdom of a teacher who knows how to tackle discipleship with grace, humility, and transparency. If he's speaking, I'm listening. You should be too.
At a time when many of us today are hardly better than atheists when it comes to prayer, Jerram Barrs is a wise and gentle guide to the way of prayer shown and taught by Jesus. I have benefitted enormously from this profound yet simple and helpful book.
I was captivated by the very first chapter of this book, and knew I had to read on. If you are looking for wholesome biblical teaching on prayer that inspires but is realistic, The Heart of Prayer will surely help you as it has greatly encouraged me.
The Heart of Prayer is a very real contribution to our understanding and practice of prayer, going right to its source, the prayers of Jesus. Jerram Barrs expands our notions of prayer by showing how for Jesus, prayer was integrated into the entirety of life, not just in a little religious corner. He also focuses prayer down into practical insights about its misunderstanding, misuse and right practice. In doing this he shows the way out of many of the tangles and confusions of modern spirituality to the profound humanness of what it is to follow Jesus. This is a very valuable contribution to something that is an important part of every Christian’s experience.
