"Experience is a great teacher for our prayers, and the more he experienced, the more his prayers would develop in light of those experiences, challenges, and struggles."
Just like the title suggests, this book examines Jesus's prayers that are recorded in the New Testament. The book is divided into 26 chapters, each one focusing on a specific topic of Jesus's prayers. At the start of this book, Mark Jones wrote an introduction to help us understand the prayers of Jesus. He said that understand

All true knowledge of God involves mutual loving discourse between God and the redeemed sinner. Love desires knowledge of the person loved. God knows us perfectly, and we must, with all the assistance he affords us, to aim to know him. If this were not supremely important, Christ would not have highlighted this so often in his ministry and in prayer.

With knowledge comes affection and with affection comes devotion. As I was reading this devotion on the prayers of Jesus, I came to a better unders

Mark Jones keeps delivering solid, Scripture-saturated, experiential theology. Highly recommended!

This book is superb. It uses the prayers of Jesus found in the Gospels to get at who he was as a man. One of the best treatments of the humanity of Christ that I've seen in a long time. Jones wrestles with what it means for God to "talk to himself," which is how one could view Jesus' prayers. But the divine essence wasn't talking to itself; Jesus the God-Man was speaking to his Heavenly Father. By eavesdropping on these conversations, we gain great insight to our Lord's heart for his Father, for ...more

The Prayers of Jesus looks the different kinds of prayers the Bible records Jesus as saying. Mark Jones goes in depth with other Biblical references and points but stays overall simplistic of Jesus' message. For example, The Lord's Prayer is just as short as the rest of the passages even though it is much more densely packed than other short prayers
Personally, I didn't get anything out of this book. But that doesn't mean others won't.

I received an ARC from NetGalley; all opinions are my own.

*** I received this book from Crossway through Netgalley. All opinions are my own. ***

This book studies the prayer life of Jesus through the Lord’s Prayer (briefly) and the High Priestly prayer of John 17. I enjoyed the focus on the trinity’s role in prayer and thinking more deeply about how and why Jesus prayed (not just what He prayed).

This isn’t the first book I’d recommend on prayer, but I did find some good takeaways.

If Jesus needed prayer, how much more do we? Jesus prayers to the Father were part of his obedient and dependent life and necessary for his communion with the Father. Jesus prayed not because of any sin in his life, but simply because of his love for the Father. Jesus showed us how to pray – in joy and reverence – to request for our needs, for others needs, and in thanksgiving for all the blessings we have already received. In the Lord’s Prayer, he gave us patterns and words to help us in our pr ...more

This book is interesting, but was a little hard for me to follow. There was great depth to the writing which might be hard for some to grasp. But overall I felt like it was a good book.
