Synced: Living Connected to the Heart of Jesus (New Hope, February 2016)
Prayer can become extraordinary when we live connected to the heart of Jesus.
Synced encourages you to emulate the way Jesus lived His life. With real-life stories of people walking closely with Jesus, finding themselves in the right place at the right time, readers are challenged to examine what staying in step with the Spirit looks like. National best-selling author and known prayer expert, Jennifer Kennedy Dean, uses the familiar passage of the Lord’s Prayer as anchor points to present the way Jesus lived His life in step with the Father through prayer.
Every moment is pregnant with purpose. Every moment is drenched in power. Prayer is no longer the means by which you attempt to get God to perform for you and becomes, instead, the means by which you connect with His heart and mind. A praying life is a life of peace and soul-rest. A praying life is lived in sync with the heart of Jesus.

My Take: This book was very intense in that it convicted you on how you should be more in Synce with God like Jesus was. Jesus did nothing without first bringing it before God. We should be that way too. The author brought this all to our attention by using The Lord's Prayer as a guide to this type of life. If you want to bring your life more into synce with God then you may want to read this book to help you on the path to that life. Reading the book of Matthew and the Lord's Prayer will help too.
