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 * Burns his clothes at the end of the Camino de Santiago * Attends the world's largest church in Seoul * Visits Westboro Baptist Church * Tries to stay out of trouble in North Korea * Attempts fire walking (with only minor burns)     Although up to 90% 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.
