Before Amen, The Power of A Simple Prayer by Max Lucado ~Book Review

unnamed (8)Max Lucado’s, Before Amen The Power of Simple Prayer!  This is actually the first Max Lucado book I’ve finished reading.  I have quite a few copies of his books as he is a very accomplished author, but I’ve never finished a book.  Now that is no fault of his, it is solely mine.  I tend to start reading too many books  at one time.  I usually read two books for review purposes at all times.  Then I have the book we are reading in Sunday School.  Then I have my Bible study books I am reading.  So something has to give and it usually the books I chose to read for pleasure.

I am so glad I finally picked up a copy of Max Lucado’s writing and finished it!  There is power in prayer, I’ve seen it and experienced it before.  But after reading Before Amen, I know beyond a shadow of doubt.  Max takes us back to Jesus’ prayer, a prayer that is quotable, repeatable and portable.  He takes us back to Biblical prayer, not all these fancy formula’s and repetitions, just plain old Biblical prayer.  The prayer that Jesus gave His first followers.

Max Lucado reminds us all that prayer is about first and foremost personal relationship with the one we are praying too.  It is not about handing Him some wish list and sitting back and waiting for it to appear out of thin air.  It is about knowing the One who taught us to pray in the Bible personally.  It is about intimate conversation with the Savior of your life.  It is about connecting our heart with the God of the universe.  It is not settling for second best or drive-thru requests, it is discovering God in prayer.
