If we are honest with ourselves, we will acknowledge that we pray very little. When we do pray, we are often focused on our own performance or on making a good impression on God or those around us. As a result, we lose the joy, delight, and childlike dependence of heartfelt prayer.
But despite our weakness in prayer, Jesus teaching and example provide support rather than condemnation. This uplifting book highlights this encouragement and calls believers to turn their eyes away from their own performance and follow Jesus as they pursue the heart of prayer.
