In Praying with Jesus, Adriel Sanchez explores the most famous prayer in history, the Lord’s Prayer, and gets to the heart of each thing Jesus told his disciples to pray for.
Using the Lord’s Prayer as a framework, he unlocks the mystery of prayer, helping readers understand what prayer is, how to navigate the challenges of prayer, and how to form a habit of prayer. Sanchez points the way to how the Lord’s Prayer helps us better grasp the essential truth that we are not meant to try to navigate life in our own strength and wisdom.
Readers will learn that the daily practice of praying based on the Lord’s Prayer transforms them—giving them insight into God’s purposes, bringing the presence of God into lives, and helping to unearth treasures of grace.

“Most of us really want to pray, but we haven’t yet figured out how to become people of prayer, people for whom it is as natural and consistent as breathing. Adriel Sanchez helps us in this quest, not by becoming a guru for prayer himself, but by showing us how Jesus comes alongside us in our feeble efforts to pray, helping us to rightly see who we’re praying to, how we should approach him, and what we should talk with him about.”

“No one wants to ‘spam’ God with prayer, but it happens, and it probably occurs more frequently than we’d like. It’s why I love Adriel Sanchez’s new book, Praying with Jesus. The author exposes tired, old habits that wheedle their way into our prayer life while affirming the delight we discover when conversing with the God of the universe. The book you hold in your hands will dismantle all pretenses in prayer so that your praise, confession, and petition are renewed and refreshed. The author offers the right mix of tender pastoral soul and a firm commitment to solid theology, and what he writes about Jesus’s teaching on prayer will enrich your time with the One who cups his ear to hear your heart. I happily recommend this book.”

“In Praying with Jesus, we encounter a profound exploration of the most important and well-known prayer in the Bible. Adriel makes it exceedingly accessible and illuminates its significance for our daily lives and our relationship with God. He offers refreshing wisdom, theological reflection, and practical insights on this timeless prayer.”
