From Publishers Weekly
Meyer, the spirited television preacher with more than 70 books in print, tackles the mystery of prayer with notable success. A prolific author (The Confident Woman; Battlefield of the Mind; Approval Addiction) known for delivering no-nonsense biblical commentary, does a first-rate job in this exhaustive, yet simply presented, guide. Each of the 14 chapters provides fans with a different facet of this spiritual discipline. Meyer says that for a fruitful prayer life, it's essential to understand the balance between praise, worship, thanksgiving and making petitions. She challenges Christians to both consecrate and fully commit themselves to God's service and to realize that though prayer is simple, it is also a work that requires persistence and perseverance. For Meyer, effective prayer is characterized by a life of obedience, righteousness, continual petition and submission to divine authority. Christians must be focused on others, kindhearted, forgiving and boldly expectant. While her large fan base will relish this resource, others not in the charismatic evangelical camp might be alienated by Meyer's take on "praying in a prayer language" and her assumption that blessing others automatically invites material blessings to rebound from God. Still, the book reminds Christians that prayer is a joyous task of partnering with God on eternal matters. (Apr. 3)

Thank you Joyce for writing is very easy to read very easy to understand book. I'm pretty sure I'll be going back over every chapter several times but I don't feel I have to do that in order to pray to God and just have a conversation with him and ask him to be with me throughout my day for the little things as well as the big things. I have gained confidence that God hears me and will answer my prayers if it is in line with his plan for me.
This book is help me recognize how I let the enemy infiltrate my life and allowed him to keep me distant from God. It's allowed me to see how God has been working in the background my whole life and now that I have finally broke through the barriers and excepted Jesus Christ as my savior I know that I still have a a fight to fight with the enemy. I thank God that he inspired Joyce to write this book I feel like it was written just for me and I will not forget this blessing.
