Publishers Description Prayer transforms lives every day. But for those who pray, how many truly understand its power? In her straightforward and profound style beloved by millions worldwide, Joyce Meyer reveals the incredible force that comes through the simple act of prayer. By explaining the keys to unanswered prayers, the hindrances to prayer's effectiveness, and the Bible's role in prayer, Joyce gives readers a new perspective on how best to communicate with God. She reveals that through prayerful conversation comes the ability to be successful in life, strong at heart, and sincere with others. Simple prayer, powerful results.
From Publishers Weekly Meyer, the spirited television preacher with more than 70 books in print, tackles the mystery of prayer with notable success. A prolific author (The Confident Woman; Battlefield of the Mind; Approval Addiction) known for delivering no-nonsense biblical commentary, does a first-rate job in this exhaustive, yet simply presented, guide. Each of the 14 chapters provides fans with a different facet of this spiritual discipline. Meyer says that for a fruitful prayer life, it's essential to understand the balance between praise, worship, thanksgiving and making petitions. She challenges Christians to both consecrate and fully commit themselves to God's service and to realize that though prayer is simple, it is also a work that requires persistence and perseverance. For Meyer, effective prayer is characterized by a life of obedience, righteousness, continual petition and submission to divine authority. Christians must be focused on others, kindhearted, forgiving and boldly expectant. While her large fan base will relish this resource, others not in the charismatic evangelical camp might be alienated by Meyer's take on "praying in a prayer language" and her assumption that blessing others automatically invites material blessings to rebound from God. Still, the book reminds Christians that prayer is a joyous task of partnering with God on eternal matters. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Power Of Simple Prayer?
The Power of Simple Prayer Apr 13, 2010
The title was just what I had a need for. However, the seller never sent the book nor did I receive any response to my inquires. Perhaps the seller is still reading the book. Several sellers to choose from, I chose what appeared to be a Christian Ministry in the hopes the money would go to aid those less fortunate. I am still looking for the book, to improve my prayer life.
Great resource!!! Apr 3, 2010
This is an awesome book. I purchased it because I was seeking a deeper connection with God. Joyce explains that prayer is just a converstation with God, and doesn't have to be a big production. It helped me to let go and just start talking to God the way that I would talk to any other friend. If you are seeking a deeper connection with God, I urge you to purchase it. You won't be disappointed.
The Power of Simple Prayer Feb 1, 2010
Joyce Meyer is well-respected and loved by many and this book proves the praise is well deserved. She helps you get right with God by just simply telling you like it is. As she explains, Prayer is one of most simple yet powerful tools we have and mastering it (however you may define that for yourself) can bring a lifetime and contentment and joy knowing that you have a direct and close relationship with God through prayer. Prayer is for everyone of God's children. He doesn't care if you're eloquent or know exactly what words to say. All he cares about is that as His child you come to Him with your innermost thoughts and needs and praise. Joyce Meyer helps you find your way to pray and helps you find the words you want to say. Well worth the price of purchase. Don't hesitate to buy and read often. God is waiting to hear from you.
so far so god Nov 27, 2009
The Power of Simple Prayer was suggested as a tool for a women's study group in our church. So far it has been a simple read and Mrs. Meyer's has had some good advise on "talking" with God. So far so good....
Excellent Read Sep 7, 2009
Joyce Meyer has a way of connecting with me that gives me confidence that I am on the right track. I actually checked this book out of the library because I didn't want to spend the money on a book I would read once and then put on the shelf. It was so helpful to me that I purchased it and read it again. I am not usually a fan of religous self help books, but I highly recommend this one.
