When I started my study on prayer - I figured I would have to learn latin, chanting and possibly learn how to flog myself. I was very relieved to find out how simple it is to just talk to God. Joyce does an amazing job outlining the simplicity of prayer and then discussing the things behind the scenes e.g. why we don't get a response from God, what we are doing that prevents the full power of our prayers from making things happen.

This book is amazing if you are an overthinker and perfectionist like I am. It has brought an amazingly fresh new perspective on the power of prayer and truly how simple it can be. I am totally guily of overcomplicating this part of my walk in faith and have gained so much new perspective from this book. I am actually re-reading to jot down some notes for reference and am finding just as much the second time through. Definitely recommend this for anyone needing a little encouragement in the area ...more

An excellent, easy-to-read book about prayer. It's a good book to read if you need to pick it up at intervals, like I did, or to read right through. I underlined as I went along because there are very good points to note. Certainly this is a book that you'll want to read through multiple times so that you can strengthen your prayer life and continue to learn. I highly recommend this book for new and not-so-new Christians. It's a good book for you wherever you are in your walk with Christ.

Buku ini benar-benar mengajarkan dirimu bagaimana berdoa.

Dari buku ini, aq mendapatkan pelajaran yang sangat berarti. Bahwa jika kita ingin meminta sesuatu kepada Tuhan, sebelumnya selidik dulu dari dirisendiri, apakah hidup kita sudah benar? Jangan mengharapkan Tuhan akan menjawab doa kita, jika hidup kita sendiri belum benar. dan juga mengajarkan kepadaQ, agar jangan egois. Maksud egois dalam hal ini adalah kita hanya mendoakan dirikita sendiri atau keluarga kita saja, yuk mulai belajar untuk

Excellent text about the power of prayer for peole who tend to underestimate its power. A good reminder of a very basic Christian concept.

Wonderful teaching on it's topic, prayer.

Meyers has a strong approach to prayer, very clear and stable statements as to what prayer is and the Biblical support to hold up her assertions. She says that prayer is simple and we complicate it, that it is a relationship, not a crystal ball or a vending machine. She says that at it’s center is a love filled life.
She has several chapters on detailed descriptions of different types of prayer and their uses. Then she has a chapter on key elements that make prayer affective and then she writes

Banyak sekali yang saya dapatkan dari buku ini, terutama cara berdoa yang baik dan benar. Madam Joyce menguraikan secara rinci dan menyenangkan tentang cara kita berdoa sehingga membuat kita mampu memahami bagaimana cara berdoa yang benar. Doa adalah hal yang sangat sederhana sehingga kadang-kadang kita lah yang membuatnya terlihat sulit. Thanks Madam Joyce sudah mengajarkan bagaimana cara berdoa yang benar... :) #JoyFul

Selain itu, hal yang touching banget adalah bagaimana kita menyerahkan diri

I didn't realize the audio book was abridged.

While it repeats some items I've read in John Maxwell's book (currently re-reading), it offers different insight into the same issues and topics. That is what makes this book one to listen to or read (I intend to purchase a copy of the book for reference).

One thing I discovered while listening to this is the devil doesn't like someone learning more about prayers. I found myself getting distracted and missing what was being said. It wasn't because of t

I hate giving this a 3 but I don't think I'm quite up to "really liked it". However, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone who would like to develop their prayers.
My eyes landed on this title in the library after talking with God about prayer - some will see the magic of this. Anyway... Some of the points in this book were common sense for me but there are things in here that served as reminders and thinking points. If anyone needs to strengthen their prayers or wants to build on praye

If your that type of Christian that goes by the rules when you pray, you'll be surprised when you read this book. Meyer literally made me think about Christianity and how we always view it as "stiff", especially when you want to present yourself to God. The Power of Simple Prayer simply inspired myself to be as I am when I come to God and communicate, my way. You should really read this book if you feel like you're spiritually dried and you want to liven up the fire again. It will really help yo ...more

This book was profound for me. As someone who's still fairly new at living this Christian life I've always had tons of questions regarding prayer. Joyce Meyer couldn't have laid it out any better. I had no idea that simple sayings and sentences such as "Thank you Jesus" or "Lord help me" were considered prayers as long as they are sincere. I will definitely be taking the principles learned and applying them immediately as well as using this book as a reference whenever I get discouraged about my ...more

The Power of Simple Prayer by Joyce Meyers; having just read 40 pages of it, yet I am enthralled with this book. Giving me a power of simplicity and encouragement, I quite enjoy what I have read. An easy read, yet a powerful and useful technique.

I enjoy the way it is laid out and her style of writing, so far. I would recommend this book because of the mindset when praying, I have adopted, from reading this book. She is very clear and precise.

Well done.

This book was in fact simple and powerful!! It forever changed how I think about prayer..and how I pray. The enemy of our soul is endlessly trying to complicate God...and make you think you are praying "wrong" or God is not hearing you... This book is stuffed full of the Word of God, and really equips you with the truth about prayer!

This s a wonderful resource for anyone who wants to pray effectively to God. It is not a fast read, but is filled with a wealth of information. It discusses how to pray, the power of prayer, and why and when you should pray. This book is a great resource for all, no matter what level of spirituality you have. Great book to save as a collection.

In this book, Joyce Meyer gives insights on the power of prayer, and how we can use it to communicate with God.
This is a good book and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to learn more about prayer. But, to be honest, it was hard to stick with to the end. I put the book down for a week, and then returned to it.

Pray solo

If you need to learn to pray privately, and to yourself, this is the book for you, hands down. If you need to learn to pray publicly, and out loud, you need to grab a different book.

Love this book! I asked God to teach me to pray. He responded in so many ways, but this is the most recent. I rated this five stars, because it is a book that I will read again and again. (have read it twice so far)

Great book on prayer. Simply expressed but lots of practical suggestions on developing our prayer lives. I would recommend it both to new Christians and to mature Christians - to anyone who wants to develop their prayer life and their walk with God.
