Myles Munroe's book is one of the better books I have read on prayer. I especially liked how at the end of each chapter he recaps all of the major principles. He also has suggestions for "Putting Prayer Into Action". This book is a good book to read if you need encouragement in going deeper in your prayer life. Munroe does a great job in explaining why believers prayers play such a vital role. One of the things he says is, "Prayer is an expression of mankind's affirmation of and participation in God's purpose for the earth." He also talks about how as believers in Christ, God has given us authority, and the importance of that. "Prayer is earthly license for heavenly interference." If you saw the Secret but wanted to understand its principles from a Christian viewpoint, then this is a good book to read. Munroe wrote his book several years ago, but what he says about faith coincides with the Secret. A couple of the things he says is, "Make room for your answer.", and "Faith is belief combined with expectation and action." As I said before I liked how at the end of each chapter Munroe gave a recap. I, however, didn't like how he gave step by step actions to follow when you pray. For example, "Ten Steps To Preparedness In Prayer" or "Twelve Action Steps To Prayer" It seemed more like a to do list, rather than about connecting with God and His will and purposes. Overall though, it is easy to look past the to do lists, because you will find a new passion and excitement for prayer after reading this book.
"This is a must read" it explains how and why our prayers are answered and when they are not. I have been truly blessed by the teaching of God's word through Dr. Myles Munroe. His teaching on the definition of prayer took it to me to a new level.
Based on the Preface, Introduction, and only the first few pages of Chapter 1 of this book, I feel confident in giving a rating of 4 stars. What truly stimulated my thinking in the introduction was how Dr. Munroe laid the foundation for the true purpose of prayer. If one can grasp this foundation, then the power of prayer becomes obvious even before you finish reading the book. From this point, one can eagerly look forward to Dr. Munroe expounding on the principles that he introduced in the book's Introduction. The ideas at first seemed radical, and actually, I think they are, however they 'feel' right in my spirit!
