Want to bring God encounters into your coaching--and your relationship with Jesus? Stop praying about the business ("God, what do you want me to do?") and learn to pray about the relationship ("Jesus, here's what I like about you: ____. What do you like most about me?") with a master of engaging the heart as your guide.

Questions for Jesus by master coach Tony Stoltzfus takes you on a journey of learning how to pray and coach around your deepest desires. Written in a devotional format, this book takes heart-level conversation with Jesus to a new level.

Questions for Jesus shows how Jesus spoke to the deepest desires of those he met--and how he can do so for you. Built around 52 passages in Matthew where Jesus touches desires, each meditation offers five powerful, heart-level questions that will help you enter into the passage and receive what your heart most longs to hear.
