Understanding the true meaning and impact of the words Jesus prayed.

More than any other part of his ministry, Jesus’ prayers inform and engage his intentions for how the gospel would change lives and affect the world. When we take time to review the moments when Jesus prayed with his disciples or went away to pray alone, we engage both a story and a set of lessons. Jesus doesn’t just pray as a means to be with the Father; he uses prayer as an instructional. Discover Jesus’ own hopes and desires when he prayed for us to

Have a relationship with the Father
Be shaped by God’s wisdom and guidance
Be united with one another
Bring glory to God
Have consistency in our spiritual life

What the Prayers of Jesus Tell Us About the Heart of God refines our understanding of Jesus’ plans for his disciples (both in that first century and for every century to follow). By witnessing even the most intimate moments between the Father and the Son, we can learn something about the big plan God has for our lives.
