A Year of Living Prayerfully: How a Curious Traveler Met the Pope, Walked on Coals, Danced with Rabbis, and Revived His Prayer Life Read Online Free - Is Anyone Listening? Do My Prayers Really Change Anything?

Jared Brock sensed that something was missing in his prayer life, so he embarked on a yearlong journey to rediscover the power of prayer (and eat some delicious falafel).

* Dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn
* Discovers the 330-year-old home of Brother Lawrence
* Burns his clothes at the end of the world
* Attends the world's largest church
* Attempts fire walking (with only minor burns)

Although up to 90% of us pray, very few of us feel like we've mastered prayer. A Year of Living Prayerfully is a fascinating, humorous, globe-trotting exploration of prayer that will help you grow your own prayer life.

While filming a documentary about sex trafficking, Jared and Michelle Brock felt a deep need for prayer in their personal lives. In an effort to learn more about prayer, the couple traveled the globe, exploring the great Judeo-Christian prayer traditions: in mountains and monasteries, in Christian communities and cathedrals, standing up and lying down, every hour and around the clock.

Jared's witty reflections on his fast-paced journey will both entertain and inspire you to think about your own prayer journey.

Join Jared on a rollicking modern-day prayer pilgrimage... you'll never pray the same again.

This was definitely a unique book which will make it appeal to some. However, I'm not sure that the reader will learn much about Christian prayer, the subject of the book. It is more of a study in the traditions and practices of various religious denominations and some cults. It is interesting no...

I enjoyed this couple’s thought-provoking journey that had them searching the globe to learn about prayer. What is it? How is it done? This young couple had been passionate about prayer and their faith since middle school, but lately, their prayer life was stale. They were sensing a deep need to...

I cant say enough about this book. The journal a man took over a year to find out what prayer means to others, to different religions, to different countries - how it can change in his own life & bring he & his wife closer to God. The travels & adventure took him literally over the worl...

In his book, Jared, like other writers before him, goes on a year-long journey to learn more about prayer and go deeper in his own prayer life. You can get a sense of his humor. While he...

This book was recommended to me by my mother-in-law. She was reading it and loving it. She was laughing out loud, laughing so hard she has to stop reading. The idea of the book I though was really intriguing, travel the world, encounter other faith traditions, focus on how they pray, and learn to...

The author compares prayer methods and meanings across continents in this funny and fascinating travelogue to exotic locales. The visit to North Korea was especially chilling! I found the tips on improving one's prayer life to be practical and inspiring.

This book was hard for me to rate. It's not the first time that I've wished goodreads had half stars so I could rate something more accurately. For me this book is a solid 3.5, halfway between liked it and really liked it, which I think is actually a big accomplishment for Brock since (for reason...
