Is anyone listening? Do my prayers really change anything?

Jared Brock sensed that something was missing in his prayer life, so he embarked on a yearlong journey to rediscover the power of prayer (and eat some delicious falafel). Follow Jared on a 37,000-mile trip around the world as he dances with Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn, discovers the 330-year-old home of Brother Lawrence, plants prayer bombs in North Korea, burns his clothes at the end of the world, attends the world’s largest church, and attempts fire walking (with only minor burns).

Although up to 90 percent of us pray, very few of us feel like we’ve mastered prayer. A Year of Living Prayerfully is a fascinating, humorous, globe-trotting exploration of prayer that will help you grow your own prayer life.

While filming a documentary about sex trafficking, Jared and Michelle Brock felt a deep need for prayer in their personal lives. In an effort to learn more about prayer, the couple traveled the globe, exploring the great Judeo-Christian prayer traditions: in mountains and monasteries, in Christian communities and cathedrals, standing up and lying down, every hour and around the clock. Jared’s witty reflections on his fast-paced journey will both entertain and inspire you to think about your own prayer journey.

Join Jared on a rollicking modern-day prayer pilgrimage. You’ll never pray the same again.
