with vehement cries and tears…
was heard because of His godly fear.”

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!
