Product Description

Prayer is a lifeline, a beacon of hope that we can cling to in life's difficult moments...Lord, please protect my family...God, I need your help to make it through today...Jesus, thank you for your grace...It goes on and on. Prayer is the most necessary and most basic expression of our faith, yet we often struggle to do it. The daily duties of life crowd in, filling our days with activity and we don't communicate with our heavenly Father.

Thankfully, we aren't the first followers of Jesus to struggle with prayer. The disciples did too. In response to their questions, Jesus gives them, and us, a simple, beautiful example to follow. Likewise, in Before Amen, Max Lucado explores the very heart of Biblical prayer by offering distilled, hope-filled prayers that will help you turn your heart towards the One who longs to speak with you.

Publisher's Description

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.

    This is a book to be cherished. It is beautifully written and carries a simple message about God's love. The short prayer is easy to remember and can be quietly said to oneself at any time. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Max Lucado brings a fresh perspective filled with child-like faith to the study of prayer in his new book before amen. That's what struck me about the book. The way Max Lucado highlights the true father-child relationship of prayer. I read passages of this book to my husband because they so struck me. I also highlighted, underlined, and tweeted thoughts...not because they were so revolutionary. But because in their very simplicity, the concepts urge me to approach my Father God as a child. To curl up in His lap and share my days and concerns. Prayer doesn't need to be complicated or pious. All that is needed is a heart ready for and seeking relationship.

    Max Lucado in his new book, Before Amen published by Thomas Nelson shows us The Power of a Simple Prayer.

    From the back cover: 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 wouldnt 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 arent 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. Couldnt we use the same?

    Join Max Lucado on a journey to the very heart of Biblical prayer and the power unleashed with six simple lines:

    Father, You are good. I need help. They need help. Thank you. In Jesus name, amen.

    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.

    Max Lucado writes the greatest books in the world and this book is his best yet! With Before Amen he is looking at The Lords Prayer in an entirely different light than what we are used to. In nine chapters he breaks down what Jesus said and shows us a new way to approach the Throne of God. I am fascinated at what Pastor Lucado was able to come out with. This is life changing stuff. Simplicity. God wants to hear from us and He really enjoys it when we call Him Father, or Daddy. Once we got that down then the rest of the verses are easy. Before Amen is a book that you might want to read a few times. Once for the primary impact that it will have on your life then again for the truth that you missed the first time. You will want to give this book to family and friends so that they can know how to talk to God as well. They will always remember your gift and thank you for it. I recommend this book highly!
