You’re Only a Prayer Away
Meet Tyson and Stefan. One strange night, they suddenly—weirdly—connect with each other in a time contortion that spans exactly a thousand years. Stefan is a young warrior in training in the Middle Ages, trapped in a tower while raiders ravage everything below. Through a long, sleepless night, the two guys help each other wrestle with responsibilities they don’t want. And Stefan shows how to link up with a source of strength that Tyson can hardly even imagine. It all has to do with a Man named Jesus, and the way He prayed. Follow their spiritual adventure, and walk into the journey Jesus wants for you. He’ll show you, as no one else can, how to pray in the way that works.
Story Behind the Book
“This book became a reality thanks to these four things: a recurring image in my fresh-from-sleep thoughts about a boy in a bell tower, extensive Bible study on Jesus’ prayers, the publisher’s request for a youth book focusing on Jesus and prayer; and then a friend’s off-hand mention of the phrase, ‘What would Jesus pray?’” —Mack Thomas

He held his breath from the ache as he found a place for his feet amid the football gear and empty energy drink cans and motor oil bottles that cluttered the car's back floorboard. Tyson's pain was due to a soccer injury in this afternoon's junior varsity game-from a kick that hammered him after he tripped and fell right in front of an opposing player.
Tyson closed his eyes and gave his hurt some glory by imagining that it was a warrior's wound. From the blow of a knight's lance, he thought to himself, as he slowly leaned back his head. The enemy rider had caught his blind side while Tyson was engaged with soldiers in front of him. The hit could have been deadly, but somehow it failed to knock him from his horse. He clutched his shield tighter to his wounded side, raised his sword in his right hand, roared out a battle cry, and hurled himself into the fight with more fury than ever. Like a man possessed.

Tyson broke off his dreaming, reached for the handle, and slammed the door, all of which did nothing for his injured ribs.
Adam, shaking his head in irritation, sped out of the parking lot. He was stiff-arming the ste...
