Acclaimed author Jennifer Kennedy dean draws on her decades of study and practice of prayer to confront the biggest challenges believers face in keeping prayer fresh and exciting. Jennifer has identified ten common struggles, and addresses each with her signature style of clear communication of scriptural truths. Each chapter addresses one challenge, and suggests a reframing and refocusing that will help readers understand and overcome. Works well in small group settings or for individuals.
Each chapter ends with questions and ideas for reflection and discussion.
Over the years of speaking and teaching on this topic, Jennifer has listened to the questions and struggles of people from every walk of life and every level of spiritual maturity. Says Dean, “I have taught these concepts in every kind of venue—big, little, urban, rural; geared toward intellectual skeptics or people of straightforward faith; people of all denominations; people of different levels of spiritual maturity or biblical knowledge; people of many different cultures, all over the world. In each of these venues, I have taken live questions. I think my experience with this one topic qualifies me to say the following: The questions and struggles are consistent. I know that when I invite live questions from my audience, those questions will be the same.”
