Description

Prayer can be a struggle. Sometimes we don’t think it will make a difference, or we rely on ourselves, or we’re just too busy. And even if we do pray regularly, it can feel more like a duty than a delight.

J.D. Greear shows us how prayer was a non-negotiable daily staple in Jesus’ life, more essential to him than eating or sleeping, and therefore why we need to pray as well. He shows us how we can enjoy the same source of power as our Lord and the early church when we learn to "just ask" and depend on our heavenly Father as they did.

Giving specific practical tips for getting on with prayer in everyday life, this book leaves readers wanting to pray, rather than just feeling that they ought to.

In his introduction, Pastor J.D. says, “Prayer is not a religious task to accomplish; it’s an invitation to lay your burdens down at Jesus’ feet, to share your heart with him, and to be with the one in whose presence is the fullness of joy and at whose right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16 v 11).”

J.D. Greear is the Lead Pastor at Summit Church and former President of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Rebecca McLaughlin

Author, Confronting Christianity

This book is for people like me: prayer weaklings. We’ve all heard about prayer warriors. Perhaps we even know a few. But it’s the prayer weaklings that need help, and this book bent my wobbly knees and helped me cry out to my Father. I hope it helps you too.

Lead Minister, Highfields Church, Cardiff, Wales

This book is biblical, realistic, and above all hopeful. As a lifelong struggler when it comes to praying, I’m always on the lookout for books and resources that remind me of the privilege and possibility of a healthy prayer life. Short and punchy without losing theological depth, Just Ask just might be the devotional game-changer you’ve been looking for.

Derwin L. Gray

Lead Pastor, Transformation Church, Indian Land, South Carolina; Author, God, Do You Hear Me?

I met J.D. in the late 1990s, and back then he was talking about planting thousands upon thousands of churches around the world so that the gospel could be heard by everyone. And even then, at the foundation of this audacious goal was a deep dependence upon prayer. J.D. is going to teach you how to pray and why we pray, and as you learn to pray, your life will be transformed.
