Book Overview
When asked, How does Jesus teach us to pray? what would you answer? Most Christians would probably mention the Lord's Prayer. But there's another way that Jesus taught us to pray: in the Garden of Gethsemane, He modeled a prayer that can revitalize and transform your prayer life. In the same sentence Jesus both requested (Take this cup) and relinquished (Not my will). He prayed two sides of the prayer coin--honesty and abandon. Elisa Morgan's The Prayer Coin explores this two-sided masterpiece of prayer, inviting you to the intimacy Jesus died to provide.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Take a coin. Toss it in the air. Now call it. Heads? Tails? What if you could choose both sides? Elisa Morgan birthed the prayer coin idea as she was struggling in her own prayer life. Should she be blatantly honest about her desires or just leave everything to God and let Him lead? An epiphany came when Elisa noticed how Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane: Take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done (Luke 22:42). Jesus Christ begged for relief from the trial He faced, while utterly complying with what He knew the Father's will to be. Honesty and abandon--in the same breath. Elisa discovered that Jesus invites us to both. And the emotional back-and-forth, between full-out honesty and giving it up in abandon, actually drew her closer to God. If Jesus--our Savior, Mentor, and Friend--could pray both sides of the prayer coin, could we as well?
