It's not that you don't want to go deeper in prayer, you just aren't sure how. Tirabassi first describes how the impossible, the extraordinary and the unbelievable happened when she began to take her prayer life very seriously. Then she explains how you can feel and see God's power working in your own life and for those whom you pray. Her step-by-step approach to having da ...more

This book encourages readers to have a set time and place for daily prayer. In addition, a useful way to remember to praise and thank God as well as confess sin (in contrast to only asking for something) is provided. Regarding these topics, the book is beneficial and insightful.

On the other hand, much of the book reads more like an instruction manual or commercial for the author's other prayer-related products and less like a discussion on prayer. When prayer is discussed, the focus is almost so

This is one of the first Christian books I read. It really inspired me to pray, about EVERYTHING!

This book has me commited to 1 hour journaling prayer and Bible reading 5 days a week. I even felt he need for more. I have already experience answered prayers and strength. I recommend this book to those who can't get over that hump of not finding time to pray. This will help you enjoy praying everyday.

While I found the book beneficial in getting serious about having prayer time, I found it glossed over the difficulty of hitting the times in one's life when during prayers one doesn't feel connected to God or the discouragement of getting the "wait" answer.

The author was relate-able when discussing the need to make time for praying but since her examples all involved having her prayers answered the way she wanted or better, it lacked encouragement during the "silent" times or the "no" answers.

A great guide - and the prayerbook, when I'm disciplined - is an amazing tool. The prayerbook not only helps me focus during my prayer time, but allows me to look back at all the prayers - large and small - that have been answered.

The book title isn't exaggerating! It had a profound impact on my prayer life and the prayer journal that is available through her web site is fabulous. I am on my 3rd one.

Excellent book and awesome bible study! I gave this five stars because it did literally CHANGE my life! I now get up every morning and write out my prayers using the P.A.R.T system and I have never felt closer to God or his plans for my life! It's a quick read and I encourage you to do it!

Shelves: prayer
The author gives an overview of what prayer is and isn't, how to become disciplined to pray, writing out your prayers in the prayer notebook, powerful prayer, miracles, the Word, God's timing, etc.

Good overview. Would be great to do together in a small group home study.

I wasn't a huge fan of this book. I felt that it only told one side of the prayer story (i.e. "It's so easy and great!"), assumed that the author's way is what works for everyone, and occasionally bordered on "prosperity gospel". But it did inspire me to pray a little more boldly for bigger things.

This book caused me to look at prayer differently--in a better, more real and positive way.

So inspiring. I started a prayer journal after reading this book and it has been a tremendous blessing. I am able to keep record of all of my prayers and look back and see the answered prayers over the years. Great faith builder.

Becky Tirabassi most definately shares from the heart here and this book will change your prayer life and then the rest of your life if you let it. It changed mine in the 90's! In fact, I could probably use to read it again today!
