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.


"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 benefited enormously from this profound yet simple and helpful book."

Os Guinness, author of The Call

"I can't think of anyone better than Jerram Barrs to write on the subject of prayer. Dive into The Heart of 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, author of New Way to Be Human
