Item description for Praying with Jesus: A Year of Daily Prayers and Reflections on the Words and Actions of Jesus by Eugene Peterson...
Overview Chosen from the Gospels of Matthew and John, these 365 readings encourage us to remove ourselves from our hectic, day-to-day pace and pray with the natural, comforting rhythms of Jesus' own teachings. By slowing. down and opening ourselves to the expansiveness of his words and stories, we become his apprentices. As we observe and listen to our master, we learn to pray regularly and frequently, as he himself prayed. Through this prayerful apprenticeship, we can discover a new world of companionship with Jesus, "a world in which repetitions deepen intimacies and a long silence is as eloquent as a sonnet."
