The conversations between Jill Briscoe and her Father in Heaven are intimate, warm, and full of surprises. For many years Jill has given herself in obedience to a public ministry which has often been costly and exhausting; in addition, she has an extensive network of family members for whom she feels acutely responsible.
To cope with these many pressures, Jill has found joy in stretches of candid, personal, intercessory prayer which form the basis for the conversations in this book. The value of this and her previous books is that we are allowed to eavesdrop: to welcome into our own spiritual lives the warmth that flows from these exchanges, and to learn for ourselves the value and possibilities of such a trusting relationship with the Father. This 40-day devotional is intended to accustom readers to this form of prayer.
