Show synopsis John Indermark helps readers walk the prayer paths of Jesus to gain clear insights into the life of prayer. With a fresh clarity, readers will see that Jesus prayed at all times and in all places--for example, in the solitude of the desert and in the midst of crowds, on the mountaintop and in the garden. Helping readers to move beyond these times and places, Indermark invites all to follow the example of Jesus and to learn deeper ways to connect with God. Written as a six-week study, each section has seven readings. Each reading has a related prayer exercise to help readers grow in prayer and in the model of Jesus. A guide for small groups is included in the book. Indermark writes from a very personal perspective and includes stories from his family and chruch life that are always relevant to the subject. He begins his exploration of the prayers of Jesus by writing about a chruch camp experience, a time when he was to give the evening devotion around the campfire. "Why I even recall that devotion is this: It served as the first time in my life I felt a sense of calling to Christian ministry." Always gentle and inviting, Indermark's writing helps readers to see new depth in the prayers of Jesus and new ways that all might pray.
