    Overall, this is a very good guidance for prayer Because I believe that the heart of the author is true, pure and genuine The only problem is that it is clear that faith is not strong enough in some prayer, in the sense that there are many redundant words on ourselves but not on God This is inconsistent with the spirit of Bible As Bible said Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind Luke 10 27God must come first, never ourselves Day 1Father, you have made me your child through your Spirit In your kindness you adopted

    This is a very nice book of Christian prayer Each prayer is proceeded by a biblical text that underpins and empowers the prayer being presented The prayers are short, only a few paragraphs at the most This book is good for browsing.The author is a real human like you, he makes that clear in the introduction where he says Hi I m Max, I m a recovering prayer whimp, I doze off when I pray The book is not encumbered by deep, dusty pages of philosophical, blabber after the short introduction it gets straight to the business of offering you real life prayers Not the kind of Hollywood style prayers of exhaled personalities but prayers of thanks, praise and petition If you like praying, reading prayers, or you want to start, then this book is for you.

  5. Rebeccah Brown says:

    I have the deepest respect for Max Lucado and there are many things within each of his books that touch and teach me This book, the same is true Initially I felt the prayers should have been categorized in some way After letting that go and chilling my heels a bit, I found that any prayer selected was purposeful and meaningful without need for labeling One of the lovely points of this book is to open yourself fully and find peace in prayer It is a keeper.

  6. Debra Hahn says:

    You are not alone As long as we have prayer, we are always only a call out to GOD Whenwe pray we grow closer to him, and our faith grows stronger in us as wellas the peace in side our spirits This book has many simple prayers in all every day life It helps us to grow into a stronger prayer life day by day Tohelp us attain the fellowship walk we want with our Father in heaven Makingus stronger in our Christian walk with GOD.Debra H.

  7. Laura Cundiff says:

    I love this book of prayers Whenever I open it to read a prayer or two it always seems to be just what I need I immediatly went back to the begining after finishing Its a great way to start or finish your day.

  8. Brooke Fradd says:

    I often struggle with prayer, and they suggested prayers in this book made for a good starting point On the mornings that I didn t feel moved to pray, the Lucados words guided me to seek God no matter my feelings I really liked and appreciated this resource.

  9. Kelly says:

    This is surprisingly good I love Max Lucado, but it s rare that I find something that I think will help me get a better handle on prayer I think I m going to be spending a lot of time going back through this one.
