The book Before Amen by Max Lucado was a wonderful and amazing book. Max talks about “The Power of a Simple Prayer.” I, for one, have a lot of guilt regarding prayer. I have always wanted my prayer life to be more fulfilling. The words in this book really helped me not to feel guilty anymore. Max also gives lots of tools and suggestions for helping us get started in prayer. He says to just start with a little prayer and then once you get started it’s easier to keep going. I know with me a lot of my problem is getting started.
This book just really helped me with my prayer life and I am so glad I read it. I did it as part of a Bible study but it’s a book to be read on your own as well. There are also discussion questions in the back for each chapter. This book was really easy to read…for me anyway. It flowed well and was really easy to relate to. Sometimes I thought that he wrote certain parts specifically for me!
I highly recommend this book. It’s a must read as far as I’m concerned and I give this 5***** all the way around.
