There are certainly some good things to be learned from this book: Why we pray, praying according to God's will, being diligent in prayer, etc. But there were a couple of points that I don't necessarily agree with. For instance, on page 163, Dr. Floyd states, "God will not answer your prayers if your relationships with other people are strained". This seems paradoxical to me. If God will not answer my prayers if I have strained relationships, then I can't pray about these strained relationships ...more
This book was just what I have been looking, and praying, for.

If you have felt like you needed to pray about something but didn't know how, then this book is a godsend. Dr. Ronnie Floyd is a pastor, author and current president of the Southern Baptist Convention. In this book he draws on his years of experience in leadership roles to explain in clear and concise language what prayer is and how to do it, and he devotes several chapters on roadblocks to prayer.

He explains reasons why people do no

Extremely valuable advice on enriching prayer time. This information is so encouraging and enlightening that I'm sending copies to both of my children; I wish I understood more about prayer at their age. I will also be reading through the book again, to "make it stick". As emphasized in this book, my relationship with God is directly linked to prayer, along with reading His Word. His peace and joy are the reward :)

I've read through this book twice now. There is a ton of information on what prayer should be and what it isn't. At the end is a template on how to make a prayer journal. I highly recommend it for everyone.

This is one of my personal favorite books on prayer. It challenges me out of my "traditional upbringing" in such a healthy way.
