While reading this book it has most definitely opened my awareness to how much I was not praying. I started praying with my son before he goes to bed now and it's absolutely amazing. However the definition of prayer of this author is very incorrect. She feels that God will work everything out as you pray and you don't have to do any work yourself. That's like saying "man im hungry need to eat" but you don't get out of your bed and pray "God please bring me food to eat I'm not leaving my bed to cook any, but bring me food". God doesn't work that way. It's a two way street. His effort and your effort makes things happen.
