Before Amen

Have you ever wanted to dig a little deeper into prayer, but thought the subject seemed a little daunting?  Or, perhaps, you thought you might get tangled up in the red tape of theology?  If so Max Lucado’s book Before Amen might be just the book your looking for.DSCN5676a

Max’s book is easily understood, has simple principles, and is a quick read. You will not get bogged down with a bunch of wordy explanations or terminology.

Since God is our Heavenly Father we need to approach him like we would a loving father.  One does not need to be an eloquent speaker to approach God. Just talk to Him like you would a close friend.  Praise Him for the wonders He performs in your life and ask Him for help (for yourself and those around you). Prayer doesn’t have to be a big production.  Humbly go to the Father and seek His will.

Max’s book only contains about 125 pages and can easily be read in a few hours.  In those few hours one can glean some helpful information on prayer.

We all pray . . . some.

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.

But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?

Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.

We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.

And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same?

In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.
