The Lord's Prayer: Learning from Jesus on What, Why, and How to Pray (Foundational Tools for Our Faith): DeYoung, Kevin
Praying Like Monks Living Like Fools: Tyler Staton I started listening to Praying Like Monks one morning on the way out to feed our chickens. By the time I got back in the house to get ready for work, I was UGLY crying. PLEASE DON’T STOP READING. It wasn’t that I discovered some new theological term. It wasn’t that Tyler Staton had convinced me of something I had long disagreed with. He invited me to see God’s heart for His people when we pray. He invited me to see God’s heart for our friends and family when we pray for THEM. He invited me to see God’s heart for His church as we set down our excuses and send up our prayers. I get lost sometimes when I imagine what would happen if the church was truly captivated by God and then catapulted to pray like Jesus taught us. Read this book and then come imagine with me. -Jay Gunn
