Excellent book on prayer
on 8 January 2009
Product Description from Amazon:
`If someone asked me, "Joyce, if you could make only one comment about prayer, what would it be?" I would have to respond by talking about its simplicity. It is so much easier than we think.'
Somehow we have convinced ourselves that prayer is dry and difficult; we have invented religious `systems' for prayer that place it out of reach for many of us. But THE POWER OF SIMPLE PRAYER shows us that God desires our prayer lives to be enjoyable and as natural as breathing.
Joyce Meyer's life-transforming new book:
· Answers the most basic questions we are sometimes afraid to ask: what is prayer and how do we do it?
· Offers you the key to a more powerful, effective prayer life
· Helps you decide when it is and when it is not right to pray
· Identifies `Thirteen Hindrances to Answered Prayer'.
I really enjoy Joyce Meyer books and find her a wonderful author. She is truly blessed with Godliness, wisdom and the ability to write well and in a manner that is easy to understand. This book is all about prayer. She teaches about how to pray - from the freedom of it to the power of it; the benefits of prayer for ourselves and others; how to pray with people; the different types of prayer - such as in faith with someone, or intercessory prayer; and also challenges we will face in prayer.
I learnt a lot from this book and will definitely be re-reading to help myself grow and learn in this area. For people for are Christians, for people who are interested in God, and for everyone who has ever sent up a prayer, this is a worthwhile read.
