First Steps in Messianic Jewish Prayer


Title:  First Steps in Messianic Jewish Prayer

Author:  Aaron Eby

Pages:  168

Year:  2014

Publisher:  First Fruits of Zion

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

I am not Jewish, so why read a book of this nature?  People read books of various subjects for many reasons.  For me, I read the book because I want to grow in understanding the Jewish people and prayer.  I have done a couple of online courses with this ministry, First Fruits of Zion, and like their approach of reaching other Jewish people and those who want to know more about the Messiah, Yeshua.

I used the book like a devotional, reading small sections and then meditating on what I had read.  I found a new understanding and depth to approaching God in prayer that defies description.  My prayer life is no longer stale or just reciting prayers without being engaged.  I came away with a big appreciation for the Messianic Jewish Ministry teaching me through this book, which offers a totally different approach to my time alone with God.

Perhaps some will be able to sit and read the book in one sitting and that’s fine.  The point is to come away with our hearts changed, our approach to prayer vastly different and drawing near to God with our entire being.  Please consider using this book whether its discussed between a couple of people, a small group or any avenue.  All I can say is whoever reads the book and puts any of it into practice will notice a nearness to God that perhaps was missing or an ignited passion to be in His presence and hear His voice.
