About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
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…
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. 

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? 

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

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

Prayer can be a daunting topic, and for many Christians, praying consistently and faithfully can be a struggle. (I know this has, at least, been the case at various times in my life.) But Max Lucado tackles the issue of prayer with directness and simplicity in Before Amen. Encouraging simple conversation with God, he offers a basic, easy-to-remember prayer to use as a reference point while praying. It covers all the bases – addressing God’s awesome goodness, human need and gratitude. Relevant and challenging, this pocket-sized prayer is easy to adapt and expand in pursuit of a fervent and devoted prayer life. I found Before Amen incredibly beneficial and useful, and I would recommend it for all Christians.
