Item description for Asking God for the Gifts He Wants to Give You by Woodeene Koenigh-Bricker...
Overview As Christians, we believe that God always answers our prayers, but we dont always get the answers we want. Popular Catholic author Woodeene Koenig-Bricker has discovered a prayer that asks God for gifts that he wants to give usand our Lords answers will delight us! The prayer, written by the beloved seventeenth-century St. Alphonsus Liguori, asks God for five graces: forgiveness; wisdom; a share in divine love; confidence in the merits of Jesus and the intercession of Mary; and perseverance. Koenig-Bricker expands our understanding of each of these graces, explaining their meaning with teaching and Scripture and providing illustrations of their power with personal testimony and stories.

This Book is a Gem Jul 2, 2008
This book is a gem. It outlines and delves into a specific prayer that God wants to answer for us. The author navigates through the prayer deftly, breaking it down into segments and giving real-life examples along the way. Each chapter was eye-opening, filled with revelations and new perspectives. The narrative is never preachy or pious. Rather, I felt like I was sitting with the author having a conversation - filled with joy, heartbreak, grace, and an underlying, very funny wit.
I left this book thinking of it as a realist's alternative to "The Secret". Whereas that book left me disillusioned and, quite honestly, filled with a bunch of unanswered pipe-dream prayers, "Asking God For The Gifts He Wants To Give You" lays the foundation for what is essentially the perfect prayer when seeking something from God. And it highlights the fact that sometimes answered prayers come in the most unlikely of forms.
Along the way, this book taught me much more than how to ask things from God. It improved my relationship with, and my understanding of, Our Father. I feel more connected with God having read it. What a priceless gift that is. It's a quick read; I have re-read it twice already because it lifted my spirit so. This is one of those books you don't keep in the bookcase, but on your nightstand. Close to you, so it will be a constant source of inspiration.
