Heart of Prayer

What Jesus Teaches Us by Jerram Barrs



Jesus’ words on prayer are the clearest, most up-building 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 condemnation and rebuke.

“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.”
– Charlie Peacock

“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.”
– Os Guinness, author of The Call
