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, plants prayer bombs in North Korea, burns his clothes at the end of the world, attends the world's largest church, and attempts fire walking (with only minor burns).

Enlightening for religious and non-religious folks
The author is incredibly open and curious, looking for inspiration to deepen his prayer practice in some of the unlikeliest places. Also he is deeply respectful and appreciative of people different from himself.
The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs: both authors transform as a result of their journey. Jared Brock goes on an actual journey, but the inner journeys are comparable: both learn more, appreciate more and change their own routines as a result of what they have found.
I believe this is his only audiobook. But I will definitely give it a try if he records another one.
I enjoyed the sections about Judaism and Quakers. An incident in North Korea was a bit scary.
Jared is a Christian through and through. I am not but I still got a lot of inspiration from this book.
