Book Review:
The Power of Simple Prayer: How to Talk with God about Everything


This is my very first blog post at Penny’s Product Buzz and I would like to start my blog out by sharing a special book with you.

Do you struggle with prayer? I’ve always been faithful to prayer everyday but sometimes it felt awkward or too routine. I would find myself searching for the right words or wondering if my words were spiritual enough.

I was discussing this with a very close aunt (Sue) one day and she recommended a book titled “The Power of Simple Prayer” by Joyce Meyer. I have watched and enjoyed Joyce Meyer’s television show many times, so I was familiar with her Bible teachings. I purchased the book and eagerly started reading because I felt I just wasn’t praying the way I should be.

Joyce adds a touch of humor with her real life experiences and explains different types of prayer. She explains how we should be talking to God about everything, not just when we need or are troubled about something. God hears all our prayers and really appreciates the time we take to thank and ask him for things.

Joyce shows how prayer shouldn’t be a struggle and should be as natural to us as breathing. God isn’t expecting us to pray a novel size prayer every time we pray. Little prayers throughout the day are just as important to God as those really big ones. I am amazed that when I take the time to thank God throughout the day, how much better I feel about things.

I know prayer is a serious subject but Joyce Meyer writes in such a way that makes it easy and even fun to learn about prayer. This really is a book that you will find difficult to put down.

I feel a much stronger bond with God because of the way I am praying now and can’t imagine a day going by that didn’t include taking the time to talk to the Lord.

If you are struggling in your prayer life, I really feel that this book can make a major difference in your life. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

    Hi Penny,
    After reading your article, I purchased the “The Power of Simple Prayer” book. Before reading this book, I always wondered if I should learn some prayers out of some book and follow some routine to say my prayers. But this book is an eye opener for me and I loved the way Joyce Meyer described the importance of small prayers through out the day. Joyce has also recommended a few very good books by other writers and I have purchased those books too. I’m glad that I found this website and I am so thankful to you for recommending this great book.
    God bless you.
