When God Prayed is based on a popular seminar that pastor and longtime Billy Graham associate Don Wilton first gave at Graham’s training center, The Cove. It looks with intense depth at the words of Jesus in John 17 when he prayed for himself, his disciples, and for all believers when he knew that death on the cross was near. The longest prayer spoken by Jesus in the Gospels reveals so much about God’s heart for his people, the utter sacrifice and tension of the crucifixion, and the ways in which God continues his work in us today.
Wilton writes, “I would pray that this book would simply stir your soul and move your heart to a fresh realization of the wonderful work of our Lord and Savior as he came in obedience to the Father unto death. I pray you will discover just how much we have not discovered and just how far reaching the mind of Christ really is. I pray we will all be driven to our knees in gratitude to God.”
Mind opening book to understand Jesus our Lord better and inspiring me to prayer more often more deeply because God hears and will answer prayer that is from the heart. Not always what we want however always better than we deserve.
