How did Jesus pray at the Temple and synagogues? How did he pray at the wedding at Cana? How can Jesus's ways of prayer help me love God more? Uniquely and creatively, Timothy Paul Jones shows us Jesus at prayer, both by reconstructing the Jewish prayer customs that he would have participated in, and by studying Jesus's own prayer in the New Testament. He helps us experience God the Father more personally by appreciating and imitating the way Jesus approached him.
Jesus was born a Jew and his parents raised him in a culture with a rich experience of prayer and worship. Each chapter of Prayers Jesus Prayed begins with a new story about Jesus praying exactly as he would have according to Jewish customs, and concludes with reflections that help us establish a lifestyle of prayer to God the Father.
