Book Description:

Jesus's ministry on earth as a human was marked by a devotion to prayer. Through his prayer life, we see what it means to truly depend on God.

Examining all of Jesus's prayers recorded in the New Testament, this book reflects on the content and structure of the Son of God's words to his Father- helping us imitate his example as we commune with our heavenly Father as adopted sons and daughters in Christ.

Mark Jones serves as the pastor of Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church (PCA) in British Columbia, Canada, and research associate at the University of the Free State in South Africa. He has authored several books and speaks all over the world on Christology and the Christian life.


"This is a book primarily about Jesus and secondarily about prayer. That is reflected in the subtitle Listening to and Learning from Our Savior. Jones guides us in listening to the prayers of Jesus for what they tell us about Jesus, and then what they tell us about prayer. Think of it as a Christology viewed through the lens of Jesus's prayers. Jones's purpose is much deeper than just drawing principles of prayer from the prayers of Jesus; he takes us into a deeper understanding of who Jesus is and what he has done for us, and then applies that to the prayer life of the believer in Christ."
--Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and Praying the Bible

"Mark Jones has done it again. He distills the beauty, majesty, and mystery of Jesus into accessible and transformative food for the soul. No other writer today says so much about Christ in such profound, readable, provocative, and rich ways. The humanity, vulnerability, authority, and glory of our Lord jump out of every page. Read this book."
--Dan MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Grace Toronto Church

"What a wonderful idea-to access the person and work of our Savior through his prayers. The result is a beautiful and soul-satisfying book that will not only teach you more about Jesus but also teach you how to pray. If your soul is dry and your prayers are dead, here is living water to revive and refresh you."
--David Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
