Item description for Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes to: Divine Answers to Life's Most Difficult Problems (Christian Softcover Originals) by Anthony DeStefano...
Overview From Publishers Weekly Books on prayer are legion, most often focusing on why we should pray and how to do it correctly. DeStefano, author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, offers readers a refreshing look at this evergreen topic by focusing on 10 prayers God "always" answers. "Why don't people take advantage of prayers that work? One big reason is that they are so caught up in prayers that don't always work," says DeStefano. He offers readers this guarantee: "before you even get to the last page of this book, your life will begin to change before your eyes." Prayers include "God, show me that you exist," "God, forgive me," "God, give me courage" and "God, lead me to my destiny." DeStefano uses the Christian Bible as the foundation for his work, not offering quick fixes but instead expounding on the need for true repentance, right motives and genuine commitment. More conservative camps will most likely cluck at what they see as DeStefano's lack of firmness about salvation as a prerequisite to both heard and answered prayer, but a careful reading shows that the author understands faith, not selfishness, is the foundation for these prayers. His cheerful style and heartfelt faith make this an optimistic look at a timeless subject. (May) Copyright (C) Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

AWESOME!!! Oct 8, 2008
I suggest this book to everyone who wants to know yourself and God's plan for you!
You will want to give this one away Aug 26, 2008
I bought this book for someone who I thought could use it. I discovered I, myself, needed this book and I cannot give it away even though I have been praying for years. I have thought of numerous other people to give this book to and am ordering more copies. It is a very comforting book for anyone struggling with a serious challenge, which is just about everyone! I find myself rereading it, praying the prayers and pondering it again and again. I believe it will become a classic and stand the test of time.

The author has delivered a very reassuring message to those in doubt about the care God has for all of us. In times of trial and stress, this message can bring confidence and hope in the midst of suffering and despair. His reasoning is very convincing, and each reader will recognize in his own experience where many of these prayers have been answered in other difficult times. It is a great source of encouragement, especially for the elderly whose life becomes difficult and lonely, but for all of us as well, facing troubles daily.
I couldn't recommend it more highly for those souls in search of meaning in their life. Each of the ten prayers and its answer is illustrated by several examples of experiences we all have in our daily lives. The message is down-to-earth, while at the same time, immensely uplifting.
very inspiring Aug 8, 2008
What an inspiring book. Anthony made scripture come alive in our every day lives. I appreciate the research he put into it. He gave such clear examples of faith, not only in his own life but in the lives of people, such as Theodore Roosevelt.I'm sure this book will deepen the faith of anyone who reads it.

I like the way the prayers and the sure response is validated by experience and proved by the Word of God.
