Before Amen by Max Lucado

In "Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer" Max Lucado shares about all of the different types of prayer, and how to pray when it's hardest. He shares his "Pocket-size Prayer", an easy to remember prayer to help you get started. He explains that prayer isn't for a select few. It's the way all of us were designed to have a heartfelt conversation with God!

In "Before Amen", Lucado explains that prayer doesn't have to be so formal. It can just be a simple conversation. When you talk to your earthly father, do you use "thee", "thou", and make your requests sound like something out of the renaissance? Yes, you can pray that way, but God still hears you when you talk to Him like you talk to your earthly father. Prayer is an intimate conversation. God wants to hear from us!

The Pocket-size Prayer is not some gimmick. It's simply a tool to help us learn how to pray. It can be expanded to cover any communication with God.


I really enjoyed this book! In fact, I have not yet read a book of Max Lucado's that I didn't like.His writing is very easy to read and understand. When I read his books, I feel like I am reading something written to me by a friend. I highly recommend this book and rate it as 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
