Description

We all pray. . . some. But wouldn't we like to pray better? Stronger? With more fire, faith and fervency?

We aren't the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested. In Before Amen, New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado helps readers discover the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubters and confidence for both prayer beginners and experts.

In this book, Max will help you:

  • Distill prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer.
  • Remember that the Good Shepherd has authority over your life.
  • Learn that prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child.
  • Don't be bogged down by crafting elegant words or apologizing for incoherent sentences. Climb into God's lap and tell him everything on your heart. Today is the day to let the conversation begin.

          The concept that there is power in a simple prayer normally wouldn’t take a whole book to convey, but Lucado (You’ll Get Through This), a prolific author with 92 million books in print, succeeds in getting readers to approach communication with God in a whole new way. A self-proclaimed distracted “prayer wimp” (wouldn’t we all like to pray more, better, he asks), Lucado uses humor, imagery, and insights into God’s character to reshape thoughts about prayer, transforming it from a list of needs and wants (with a history that might leave one doubting the effectiveness of prayer) into a heartfelt conversation with God. He offers a ready-made prayer that’s easy to whip out anytime, anywhere. This condensed prayer distills all of the supplications in the Bible into just six sentences. Saying them before uttering “amen” can counteract worry, provide words for situations where no words seem to come, and obtain immediate intercession on behalf of those in need. Agent: Steve Green, Anvil Management.
