5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jim Glover on August 28, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This little book gives a credible, plain language explanation of why answered prayers are not a miracle, but to be expected. The author describes how a person can expect to have prayer answered just like we expect water to freeze in the cold.
The writing is not a "holier than thou", lofty theory. It explains why prayer should be confident, answers are to be expected. The power of prayer is limitless. How do we access that power? This book does an exceptional job of answering that and many other questions.
The book is 91 pages of concrete ways to look at praying - a delight to read and re-read.
I have studied and referred back to the ideas in this book many times, over many years and repeatedly found fresh perspectives and very useable ideas. I regard it as a treasure.
In a time when questions are all around and answers are hard to find, "The Power of Positive Praying" shines a bright beacon toward finding answers.

Let me see if I can make this perfectly clear: BUY THIS BOOK. How come? For starters, I'll tell you what it is not. It is not a book that simply tries to motivate you toward a certain way of praying. Oh, you'll be motivated all right. It's just that the motivation comes from the discovery of how to pray and breaking molds of praying like you've heard.
This book goes step by step through the way God wants you to pray; not out of desparation, but out of fellowship and worship. If you begin your prayer requests with something like, "God, if it be your will..." then you desparately need this book. After reading it, your prayer life will be unlike ever before.

I enjoyed this book as I was doing a study on prayer and bought many books on prayer. I highly recommend this book to those who want to draw closer to God through prayer.
