What if you could have the relationship with Jesus you always dreamed of?

  • When you asked a question you'd get an immediate answer?

  • Jesus would tell you what he loves about you and why he's proud of you?

  • It was so easy you could get started in two minutes a day?

You Can!

Questions for Jesus is a compelling new approach to intimacy with God, based on praying about your relationship instead of what you are doing. It uses simple, relational questions that touch both his heart and your deepest desires:
  • "Jesus, why did you pick me to be on your team?"
  • "What's the first thing you'll say to me when I get to heaven?"
  • "If you wrote me a love letter today, what would it say?"

How It Works

A few years back I made one simple change in the way I pray—and my percentage of answered prayer went up about 1000%. After 35 years as a Christian, 25 as a ministry leader and 15 of coaching pastors about how to meet God in difficult circumstances (irony alert!), I was still asking Him all the wrong questions.

 >When I finally figured out how to change the subject to what He wanted to talk about, it was like our communication went from snail mail to instant messaging—and got way more intimate and revelatory in the process. 

The Questions for Jesus approach is about making that change of subject. It moves us from praying about the business of the Christian life (what I am supposed to do for Jesus) to talking with Jesus about Us—about our relationship. Questions for Jesus are intimate prayers that touch on our deepest desires--like this:

  • “Jesus, what do you like best about me today?”
  • “Jesus, why’d you make leaves green? I mean, you could have made everything gray, or the color of mud, or no color at all. Why green?”
  • “When you called James and John, and they left their business and their dad behind to run down the beach after you—what was going on in your heart in that moment?”
  • “Jesus, what did I do today that made you laugh?”

If you'd like to learn to pray like that--and hear Jesus reply profoundly in 30-60 seconds--this interactive course is for you!

This cohort based version of Questions for Jesus includes bonus LIVE activation sessions, where you'll get a chance to ask questions, participate in demos and practice your skills with peers. The live sessions take a great course and make it incredible!

  • I will be recommending this to friends!

    I will be recommending this course to friends!! I became more confident with hearing God speak to me through this course.

  • Love the Interaction

    I really appreciate the interactive part of this course. Hearing and reading what others have to say has given me a broader view of God. I always learn more while trying things out too. I love the breakout groups (even the timer).
