Book Description

"I have a secret prayer," confesses humorist Nancy Kennedy. "Every night before I go to sleep, I pray that I will wake up with a body like Cindy Crawford's...that the pile of Hershey kisses I ate won't go directly to my thighs...that one day someone will push a refrigerator-size check in my face and say, 'You've just won 11 million dollars!'"
        But Kennedy has also prayed for "nobler" things - like patience, strength, and a deeper trust in God. But, as she's found, prayers are not always answered in the way one expects. Like many others, she has wondered: "Why do I sometimes get immediate answers to my prayers, completely unexpected answers to others, and occasionally no answer at all? What can I legitimately pray for, according to the Bible? Will God respond to my prayers if I lack faith that He'll answer? Does God even need my prayers, since He must know what He wants to do already?
        With lighthearted humor and godly wisdom, Nancy Kennedy explores readers' most burning questions about prayer, solving a great deal of the mystery through an examination of those wonderful prayers God always answers: ones that lovingly conform us to the image of Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging account of a woman's faith journey November 8, 1999
Format:Paperback
Mrs. Kennedy's writing is Biblically sound, spritiually uplifting, practical, and a delight to read. She will be blessed for sharing her journey so candidly. This is among the top five books I've read this year--and I read widely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly..."down to earth" June 1, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I love to read, but don't have nearly as much time to as I'd like, so I have to chose carefully and thoughtfully. This book called from the shelf to me for some reason. I was not disappointed! Nancy Kennedy is so candid and down to earth that all I could think was, "What a relief, there are woman out there who are as messed up as me! " She made me laugh, cry, and sometimes just gasp in astonishment. I cheered her on and greatly appreciate her thoughtful, accurate, and to the point handling of God's word that just sang to my heart. Nancy is an awesome writer, and reads more like a dialog or email from a cherished friend. I could have finished this book in a day. I got on Amazon just to find more books by Nancy Kennedy. Thanks Nancy and thanks Amazon!

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book of choice little chapters is funny, touching and applicable to the every day life of almost any woman. The book makes it easy to admit my faults and just as easy to see the grace that surrounds me.
