Book Review: The Prayer of Jesus by Hank Hanegraaff


Traci L. Kenworth




Foreword by Lee Strobel        2001    Word Publishing, a unit of Thomas Nelson




Secrets to real intimacy with God




Prayers can be powerful tools in our lives. For me, reading a book about making your prayer life better makes sense. It helps to bring things down to the basics. Having a close relationship with my Savior is something I strive to do. This book breaks down Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane and shows why each line is important. I believe keeping an open channel is everything in how we communicate with God. It’s so nice to talk to Him and relate on a personal level.


The secret to prayer is secret prayer the author suggests. As in one-on-one, no frills, no need for public approval. It’s all about just talking, expressing ours needs, and most important of all, listening. Something we all maybe need to do more of. If we hope to establish good relationships in our lives, it helps to start with a solid one with our Creator. I think it defines all others. We learn to treat people as we’d like to be treated as God intended for us to treat them. Respectfully. Compassionately. Lovingly. And who doesn’t need more of that in their lives? When we approach our companions in a non-judgmental way, break-throughs occur in


our lives.


So if you’re looking for a way to enhance your day-to-day, I suggest trying this book.
