You’ll experience the power of heaven and earth being joined together as the King of all creation lays His heart over yours. Your will becomes aligned with His. Discover freedom from methods and formulas, the beauty of a gentle step-by-step reformation process, and let God unfold His mighty purposes for you.
“in the days of His flesh,
when He had offered up prayers and supplications,
with vehement cries and tears…
was heard because of His godly fear.”
The One who loved you to His death continues to pursue you.
He will humbly lay His heart over yours. Heaven and earth will agree. The supernatural will powerfully unfold. And you will be changed forever.
Story Behind the Book
Jesus’ ministry was marked by a life of prayer. Even more, Jesus is the pattern and definition of prayer. Who better for America to pray with on the National Day of Prayer than Him? And who better than father-son team Henry and Norman Blackaby to unveil such a message? In classic Blackaby style, they reveal how Jesus’ example can become our way of life. When prayer is genuine, life change is real. Look out, America. Prayer is changing our country like nothing ever has…or will!
