Book Description

There have been thousands of books written about prayer and millions of sermons preached about it, yet people continue to wonder: Why doesn’t God answer me when I cry out to him? In light of all the problems we face in life, we want to know why God is often so “silent” when we pray to him. Anthony DeStefano, author of the bestselling A Travel Guide to Heaven, knew there had to be an answer to this mystery, so he set out on a quest to find prayers that God says yes to all the time. The result is an extraordinary new book that has the ability to dramatically change the lives of readers of all faiths.
Each short, powerful prayer in Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To addresses a particular problem people commonly face in life—from accepting the existence of God to trying to make ends meet; from getting through terrible suffering to coping with everyday stress; from overcoming fear to finding your God-given destiny. Presented with a certainty and vigor that are sure to pique the interest of even those who are not spiritually inclined, these prayers will help readers find solutions to life’s most difficult situations and provide meaningful and inspiring answers to the vexing questions we have about the purpose of our time on earth.
In a world awash with superficial self-help books and deceptive gimmicks, Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To is the real thing. Using hundreds of scriptural references to support his claims, DeStefano writes in a simple, straightforward, and uplifting manner that makes the most profound theological matters understandable to all. In the words of the author, “This is a spiritual treasure chest that is available to everyone….This book is about prayers that work—really, truly work.”

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Books on prayer are legion, most often focusing on why we should pray and how to do it correctly. DeStefano, author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, offers readers a refreshing look at this evergreen topic by focusing on 10 prayers God "always" answers. "Why don't people take advantage of prayers that work? One big reason is that they are so caught up in prayers that don't always work," says DeStefano. He offers readers this guarantee: "before you even get to the last page of this book, your life will begin to change before your eyes." Prayers include "God, show me that you exist," "God, forgive me," "God, give me courage" and "God, lead me to my destiny." DeStefano uses the Christian Bible as the foundation for his work, not offering quick fixes but instead expounding on the need for true repentance, right motives and genuine commitment. More conservative camps will most likely cluck at what they see as DeStefano's lack of firmness about salvation as a prerequisite to both heard and answered prayer, but a careful reading shows that the author understands faith, not selfishness, is the foundation for these prayers. His cheerful style and heartfelt faith make this an optimistic look at a timeless subject. (May)

Advance Praise for Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To

“Why are some of our prayers answered while some are not? How do we get God’s attention? How do we get the divine ‘Yes’? In a simple, straightforward style, Anthony DeStefano takes on the mysteries of prayer. He casts a wide net to appeal to all Christians everywhere without compromising the gospel one iota. The title alone, Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To, will attract even people who aren’t believers but who cry out for help in the night. For them, the first prayer: ‘God, show me that you exist’ can be a life-changer. But don’t stop there. Read it all. It could revolutionize your prayer life.”

Pastor Jack Hayford
President, International Church of the Foursquare Gospel
Founding Pastor, The Church on the Way

“Polls tell us that most Americans believe in prayer.  However, most admit they don't spend much time praying, nor do they think it is very productive.  This remarkable book can make a difference for anyone who wants to pray with results. Anthony DeStefano shares insights on prayer that are practical, workable, and attainable.  Everyone can profit from reading this book!”

Dr. Paul Cedar
Chairman, CEO, Mission America Coalition

“Do we really need another book on prayer? We certainly need this one! Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To is remarkably different and refreshingly direct. It takes the reader straight to the heart of the issue of answered prayer and leaves him or her there wanting more—of God, of course. This book will go on my shelf beside the great classics on prayer.”

Dr. Dick Eastman
President, Every Home for Christ
President of America’s National Prayer Committee

“Anthony DeStefano has once again drawn his readers into the mystery of God’s love and invited us to reflect more...

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad title, great book May 4, 2007
When I received this book by Anthony Destefano I can't say I was very enthused to read it. The title for me was pretty offsetting and I had a totally different idea of the contents of the book then the actual contents of the book. The title invoked for me the idea of the "Name it and claim it" theology bandied about by some Protestants, especially some on TV.

The actual book though is quite different from what I expected. The author actually disparages "Name it and claim it" theology and has produced a very worthwhile book. The ten chapters in the book address each of the prayers that author says God will answer starting from "God, show me that you exist. The book is filled with realistic and practical ways to address God in prayer by outlining why these ten petition to God will work.

Prayer is not candy-coated in anyway and Anthony Destefano does not offer cheap grace. Instead whether he is talking about knowing the existence of God, dealing with suffering, forgiveness, generosity, etc he is able to relate it in terms easily understood. He also does not make the mistake of making prayer merely a method and that the point of prayer is that we are talking to someone and that someone is God as a person.

Throughout the book he uses examples form St. Thomas Aquinas, C.S. Lewis, Fr. Corapi and many others to drive home the points he is making. I learned reading the book that he is also a Catholic (in fact Fr. Frank Pavone was once his parish priest). The book at times does make some specifically Catholic points when he is talking about the ten prayers, but for the most part he is obviously writing to a general audience so this is a book for pretty much anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book is a blessing to read August 1, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
DeStefano's book is very readable, and it's remarkable how well it covers some of the most difficult questions we have about prayer. "God, show me that you exist" is the first prayer he talks about. I've known of several agnostics and even an atheist who came to believe because they humored someone who persuaded them to pray for this, even though they were sure they had not a shred of faith.

The common thread through all the chapters is that God desires that we know Him and worship Him, and He will always give us the grace to move closer to Him if we sincerely ask Him in prayer. He will increase our faith; He will show us what He wants us to do; He will give us the courage to face difficult situations; He will help us to love our neighbor. If we cooperate with His grace, He will not let us down. To me, that was the message of the book. By taking one chapter at a time, and really meditating on it, we can not only pray the right way, but also know in our hearts that God is there with us. Working through the book one chapter at a time was a great experience for me. At first I meant to read straight through it, thinking I wouldn't find anything I didn't already know. Instead, I found myself stopping at each chapter to let the meaning sink in and to pray for understanding.

I realize this is a very subjective review, but with a book like this, I imagine everyone's personal experience will be different. Some of the questions in the book will certainly apply to everyone. I've spoken with quite a few people who have read Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To, and every single one has gotten a lot out of it and was glad to have read it. In fact, I've bought a number of them as much appreciated gifts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes we make prayer too difficult May 28, 2007
I first thought this was gong to be one of those quick fix, self-help prayer book's that I would have to trudge through a bunch of errors on what the bible says about prayer and what God wants us to have, but I found it to be a book that puts prayer in a more universal aspect and helps the beginner to find their prayer compass, and those of us who have been praying all out lives, a fresh outlook on the purpose of prayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is on my top 5 of all time! June 8, 2007
This book really explains to a wide audience about WHO GOD IS, and how God's existence impacts our daily lives. The author does a phenomenal job explaining, through these 10 prayers, the loving nature of God and why we are drawn to a relationship with Him. This book has changed my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life Changing Book March 30, 2008
This is an amazing book that should be read by everyone.

When I say that it should be read by all, I do not mean just those who are Christians. This is a book that has life changing potential for believers and unbelievers alike. Prior to reading this, I thought that it might be one that is pushing the so-called 'prosperity gospel', the 'name it and claim it' nonsense. I am glad to say that it is nothing of the kind.

The most relevant part to those who are not Christ followers is the first chapter. It focuses on a very simple prayer: 'God, Show Me That You Exist'. This is something that can be said by even atheists and agnostics if they are honestly wanting to pursue the truth. One would have nothing to lose by praying this, and if he/she is sincerely seeking, an answer will be forthcoming.

Unless one is a believer, it is unlikely that he/she will pray any of the others. That is fine as the first one is certainly the most fundamental and critical.

Beyond the first one, every other chapter focuses on different areas of life. These areas include such things as wisdom, suffering, forgiveness, and many other critical areas.

Each succeeding chapter continues to build on the foundation of the first one. They are all really superb. The author has done a great job of footnoting the entire book to give one a quick Biblical references for all of the points made.

I cannot say enough good things about this book. I believe that it has the potential to be life changing for virtually anyone who reads it. This is too good to read through in a hurry. It should be savored, pondered, and prayed about.

I highly recommend it!
