This book explains the command that God gives us to praise Him in all things, even things we don't like and even things we don't understand. As I began applying these principles in my life, I began to see incredible changes in situations that had seemed hopeless to me. I changed from a rather melancholy person, to an incredibly happy person. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who is discouraged or depressed.

This book had a seminal impact on my life when I read it over 20 years ago. I knew that it captured deep truth and God's heart in some mysterious way. I also know that its principles have not failed me in my experience over all this time.

I say mysterious because for all these years I have also struggled with the conflict between the teachings in this book and teachings from the pulpit. Some aspects of this book go beyond "controversial" and approach "heretical". Read some of the comments in reviews below. But yet, I knew that it was, indeed, correct. I just did not understand how.

My purpose in writing this is that after all this time, God finally gave me understanding in a wonderful way - through 2 different sermons given in two different -unrelated- churches on the same day. They said, essentially, the same thing and directly addressed my long-standing concerns about the theology of this book.

One paster was from Pass Christian, Louisiana, and related how Katrina is re-shaping his world, up to and including opening doors for him to directly minister to the families of the Amish school shooting victims up here in our area.

Praise God for sin and for the works of Satan? Never! That is anathema to us.

Well, carefully consider this. Do we ever thank God for the crucifixion of his Son? Think about it.

From the standpoint of His disciples back then, there could be no clearer act of sin and Satan, yet we praise God for it.

This has been burning in my heart for a week now, so I went to Amazon to order a bunch of these books to give as gifts to my children and close friends, along with a cover letter that will be similar to this (my first) review here at Amazon to help them over the hump that held me for over 20 years. Read this book. It holds a foundational truth for our Christian walk.

Praise God!

This book was life changing for me. It presents a whole new paradigm, a new way of viewing the world, and it is true because it is what the Word of God teaches. Literally everything is in God's hands and will work for the good to those that love God. Please read this book!

I was just now filling out a form to send to "Crossings", in answer to their request for me to tell them about the book that changed my life. I decided to see if Amazon had the book, for the correct spelling of the author's name. So, here I am posting a review. Before I read this book, all my prayers were about me, myself and I. My prayer time was a miserable time. A friend let me read her copy. My prayers went from being about me, to praising God for who he was, his goodness, his mercy, and his love in my life, and that of my family. My prayer time became a joyful time. I found myself praising God, regardless of the situation I was facing, knowing my heavenly Father was in complete control of my life. While I've never agreed with Merlin that God sent it all...the good AND the evil, I believe it could not have come my way unless God ALLOWED it. (I'll put it this way: I agree with Joseph, in the Bible. 'you meant it for my harm, but God meant it for my good.') I am not posting a review for the sake of arguing with anyone. I will not. I just want to say that this book definitely changed my prayer life, therefore, my entire life. I encourage anyone and everyone to read it, especially if your prayer life is boring, or frustrating. It could change YOUR prayer life!

All I have to say is that you can look at the Bible 100 times over and still have no idea what you are reading. Many truths of God come in prayer and in this case "praise". Ron's review a couple of posts down says that Merlin is preaching to us that we should praise God for the evil that has come. That is completely and wholly FALSE. Merlin is telling us to praise God for the good that he will work through the evil. God does NOT cause evil; the devil creates evil and sin. God works through the devil's horrific(horrific is an understatement) ways and brings dumbfounding presence of Himself to the situation.

So when Ron says,"But it is senseless to praise Him FOR sin or evil. God hates sin and evil, and the Bible is full of clear teaching about it," he is correct that God hates sin and evil, but we do NOT praise Him for sin and evil; we praise him for his wonderful plan fro us to work straight through that evil and fill us with everlasting love. I highly HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. So listen my brothers and sisters, if you want the true meaning to this life-changing book, pray and trust in the Lord!

I praise the Lord for the book of Power in Praise. It's been a great blessing to my life & I already recommended it to my friends whose lives were also changed after reading it. It is indeed a must book that every believer should read besides the Bible. I am now a yielding empty vessel for the Lord to touch people's lives & bring them closer to Him. Praise the Lord for giving me the chance to read the book that has great impact in my life.With God's love Jenny Sutanto.
