Product Description

In Before Amen, Max Lucado explores the very heart of Biblical prayer by offering distilled, hope-filled prayers that will help you turn your heart towards the One who longs to speak with you.

Prayer is a lifeline, a beacon of hope that we can cling to in life's difficult moments...Lord, please protect my family...God, I need your help to make it through today...Jesus, thank you for your grace...It goes on and on. Prayer is the most necessary and most basic expression of our faith, yet we often struggle to do it. The daily duties of life crowd in, filling our days with activity and we don't communicate with our heavenly Father.

Thankfully, we aren't the first followers of Jesus to struggle with prayer. The disciples did too. In response to their questions, Jesus gives them, and us, a simple, beautiful example to follow.

Publisher's Description

We all pray . . . some.

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.

But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?

Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.

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.

And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same?

In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.

    Max Lucado writes in a simple, straight-forward manner that is easy to follow and makes a lot of sense. He doesnt try to impress you with his knowledge but gets his message across in a way that is helpful to the reader. This book on prayer fits that mold. If you struggle with prayer and maybe feel like you just dont get it right, read his book and learn that God doesnt sit up in Heaven waiting for us to utter some high-sounding, lengthy prayer. He just wants us to talk with Him like a child talking to his or her daddy. The simple prayer format offered here is just six simple statements to use as a guide. I recommend this book to help you get started in a meaningful prayer life. The book includes an excellent study guide and other beneficial helps.

    This book is exactly what is needed to understand that a simple prayer is as powerful as a " church" prayer.

    I enjoyed this book, it was a quick read, and gave me the insight to pray to God naturally and simply.
