A Year of Living Prayerfully
By Jared Brock
Although up to 90% of us pray, very few of us feel like we’ve mastered prayer. 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.
A Year of Living Prayerfully is a fascinating, humorous, globe-trotting exploration of prayer that will help you grow your own prayer life. Join Jared on a rollicking modern-day prayer pilgrimage as he…
- dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn,
- discovers the 330-year-old home of Brother Lawrence,
- plants prayer bombs in North Korea,
- burns his clothes at the end of the world,
- attends the world’s largest church, and
- meets the Pope and dines at the Vatican.
Jared’s witty reflections on his fast-paced journey will both entertain and inspire you to think about your own prayer journey.
Jared Brock is the author of A Year of Living Prayerfully, Bearded Gospel Men, and The Road to Dawn, and the director of three documentaries. He lives in Wales.
"You will be swept up in the sheer force of the storytelling, the beauty of the prose, the many comedies of error, the exotic cast of characters, and – above all – the drama of Jared’s prayer life."
–Mark Buchanan, author of The Rest of God, Your God is Too Safe & God Walk
