Overview

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?

InBefore Amenbest-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.

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.
