Staff Review: Before amen : the power of a simple prayer

"Before amen : the power of a simple prayer" by Max Lucado

Cover: 'Before amen : the power of a simple prayer'

★★★★★

Prayer can be a daunting task for many of us. We may feel unskilled, unworthy, or unsure of how to even begin. This little book offers insight, comfort, and instruction when it comes to learning how to pray effectively. Max Lucado breaks through all of the complication and doubt about how to pray, where to pray, who can pray, and what to pray for. He makes it easy and accessible for anyone who is willing to try to have a conversation through prayer. It all starts with six simple lines in the pocket prayer. Once you are comfortable with those, the add-on possibilities are endless. This book is a quick read, a helpful tool, and includes a study guide in the back for further reading if you choose.
