Before Amen: The Power of a Simple 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

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.

    In Before Amen The Power of A Simple Prayer, Max Lucado demystifies prayer. He suggests a basic outline that we can build our own prayers on using the example given by Christ himself (The Lord’s Prayer). It’s simple, it’s memorable, and it will be helpful for anyone who wants to pray better, deeper, and stronger.

    I wish this book would have been available to me when I first began to follow Christ. There was a time when putting my praises, fears, and questions into a prayer was intimidating. I did

    I wish this book would have been available to me when I first began to follow Christ. There was a time when putting my praises, fears, and questions into a prayer was intimidating. I didn’t know how to pray or where to even begin. What if I messed it up, misspoke, or angered God? Max Lucado shares two things in this book that every new believer needs to know: Prayer is “a heartfelt conversation between God and his child” and even the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. This book serves as a practical lesson in prayer for all believers and is especially helpful for those of us who have never had prayer modeled to us.

    In the first chapter, Max shares a few examples of how prayer is used in scripture, what Jesus said about prayer, and God’s intended purpose for prayer. Then the author introduces The Pocket Prayer. The Pocket Prayer provides a scaffolding of sorts on which readers can begin to build their own conversations with God. In each subsequent chapter, he offers thought provoking stories and prayer prompts to guide readers in praying for themselves and others.

    Before Amen is concise–Max presents his ideas within the first 100 pages of the book. The remainder of the book is a study guide prepared by Jenna Lucado Bishop. It’s a valuable tool that prompts readers to personalize the narrative, reflect on passages of scripture, pray, and then be attuned to hear God’s reply. While I completed the study alone, I could see it being used effectively in a teen/college ministry, Sunday School, or new believer class.

    I have a tendency to put pastors and Christian authors on a faith pedestal, so I was moved when Max confessed to being a “recovering prayer wimp”. By admitting his personal struggle with prayer, it took the self-imposed weight of prayer perfection off my shoulders and spurred me to reexamine my prayer life. I believe that by building upon The Pocket Prayer, my conversations with God are becoming broader (less self-centered), deeper, and stronger. If you would like to grow in the spiritual discipline of prayer read Before Amen The Power of A Simple Prayer, it earns of 5/5 stars from this reviewer.

    Max Lucado’s newest book, Before Amen, The Power of a Simple Prayer, is a “how to” book about prayer. For anyone who has ever wondered how to approach God in prayer or just simply how to pray, this book is for you.

    The book is small consisting of nine simple to read chapters.

    1. The Pocket Prayer
    2. Father…Daddy
    3. You Are Good
    4. I Need Help
    5. Heal Me
    6. Forgive Me
    7. They Need Help
    8, Thank You
    9. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    5. Heal Me
    6. Forgive Me
    7. They Need Help
    8, Thank You
    9. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

    I loved the way Mr. Lucado started chapter one, “Hello my name is Max. I’m a recovering prayer wimp. I doze off when I pray. My thoughts zig, then zag, then zig again.” I could have made that same statement entering ‘Cindy’ for Max. Let’s be honest, I’m sure some of you out there start prying at bedtime and the next thing you know you are waking up and never said ‘amen’. Or you’re in church and the pastor is leading prayer and your mind zig’s to what to fix for lunch or where you plan to go after church. I’m sure most of us have been there before. If you find this to be true for yourself, this book is for you.

    Mr. Lucado shares about the different types of prayer and how we should pray during the times that are the hardest. In the first chapter, he shares with the reader his “Pocket-size Prayer”. This prayer is easy to remember and should help the person who feels they don’t know how to pray get started.

    So many times I have heard people say, ‘I don’t know how to pray’. Believe me there are many people in the world that feel that way. Mr. Lucado explains, “God will teach you to pray.” He also goes on to tell the reader, “Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child”.

    I enjoy Max Lucado’s writing. It is simple for the reader to understand. In fact, it’s like he is sitting across the room talking with you. His explanations are clear and easily understood.

    I would highly recommend Before Amen to anyone who wants a clear picture of praying. I truly enjoyed this book.

    On a 5-Star scale – *****

    I would like to thank Litfuse Publicity and Thomas Nelson Publishers for my advanced reader’s copy of Before Amen. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest review, which I have done.

    BEFORE AMEN arrived in the mail and my preacher/husband snagged it. I told him, I have to review this. You can have it as soon as I finish! He’s like, when will that be? I said, it’s due tomorrow. He was happy. Especially as his Wednesday night sermon topics are on prayer.

    Okay, people call me a “Prayer Warrior.” I do pray. All the time. Nonstop. I pray as I go about my day. I have the Lord’s Prayer memorized (and no, that is not what I pray all day long.) I wasn’t real happy to see the prayer

    Okay, people call me a “Prayer Warrior.” I do pray. All the time. Nonstop. I pray as I go about my day. I have the Lord’s Prayer memorized (and no, that is not what I pray all day long.) I wasn’t real happy to see the prayer simplified. “God, you are good. I need help. They need help. Amen.” Really? What kind of a relationship are you going to have with someone when you communicate like that? This isn’t a text-message prayer we need to learn. This is real time, people!

    Max Lucado treats the whole topic of prayer, in my opinion, with a very cavalier attitude. Yes, God doesn’t expect thees and thous. He wants a relationship. And again. If you communicated with your best friend like that, your relationship will go downhill fast. “Hi, BFF. You are good. I need help. They need help.” Uh uh. Not good.

    I also (and again, this is my opinion, my husband disagrees) don’t condone approaching the God of the Universe with a “Hi, Daddy!” He may be our Father in Heaven. He may be approachable, through Jesus. But He’s not my daddy. He is my God. My Saviour. My Lord. To me, the “Daddy” reference to God really downplays who and what God is.

    If you do need help praying, this is a simple, easy to read, nonfiction book by acclaimed author Max Lucado. And he probably knows a lot more about the topic than I do. I was offered the book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I have read other Max Lucado books and enjoyed them.
