“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 deeply on our relationship with Him. In a simple yet profound way, Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To offers insights, and indeed a practical wisdom, that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled with personal prayer. I recommend this book to any and all who are searching for a fresh perspective on the meaning and value of a life of prayer, and, ultimately, for a more fulsome encounter with the Living God.”
Cardinal Renato Raffaele Martino
President, Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace

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.Read more ›
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.
a permanent and unrecoverable depression and path of irreconcilable bitterness.
It has such an excellent way of explaining situations in life with stories and examples and more important to that, short prayers are shared that aid us in turning to Him who cares to listen, cares to help us, and cares to be with us in our walk of life on this earth.
Anthony has blest us with this book and I highly recommend reading it and living it, by praying with what you have learned from it.
