This revolutionary book will explain what God wants for and from us when we petition Him for his will to manifest “on Earth as it is in Heaven,” and how to understand the difference.

Do you ever feel as if, despite your spirituality and faith, something significant is missing? Most teenagers and college students, as well as tens of millions of adults, are still striving to

I had trouble connecting with this book and the author's message. I felt there was a lot of useful information and the author is obviously very knowledgeable. But I felt the first few chapters were like an infomercial. It seemed to keep saying "stick around for this!" or "but wait, there's more!" That eventually stopped. Then the repetition began. I understand wanting to get a point across, but it became clear after a few times. Then I started thinking "Is there something I'm not understanding?" ...more

Love this book! It is a fresh and exciting look at prayer. I felt like the Holy Spirit was talking to me. I keep re-reading parts then stopping to pray. It made me look at some things differently and my prayer life is much stronger. A great book that will definitely refresh your prayer life!

I borrowed this book from a friend. She bought it when we visited his church C3 San Diego.

Jurgen is a wonderful speaker. You can literally see the love for God and the people at his church just bubbling out of him.

His book was no different. His voice comes across just as clear as if he was on the platform. Reading this came at the right time. I've been struggling with my prayer life. When I finally read this book, I was laying on the floor in my apartment just bawling and calling out to God. If

Fantastic

This is a fantastic book. It teaches on prayer in a very effective pratical way that will increase God's sway and blessing in your life. Every believer should read it. I am going to recommend it to my pastor.

This book was nothing short of incredible. It is EXACTLY what I needed right now.

It IS a bit on the repetitious side, but the personal stories the author relates are great. Well, some of them seem kind of unbelievable, but isn't that what faith is about? Believing what you can't see, smell, touch or feel, but trusting that God is there and loves you very much?

Though the book wasn't about God's love. Nothing so simple as that.

Basically, Satan has already lost. He was kicked out of heaven, into

Recommends it for: everyone who wants to know God in the 21st Century.
Recommended to Connie by: NetGalley
I have been given a copy of this book from NetGalley so that I could read it and give my honest review.

I've always believe in God, just not organized religion. I have read plenty of religious and spiritual books. As I was reading this one (intuition told me to pick this), I could actually feel electricity all over me. I KNEW that GOD and Jesus were talking through Mr. Matthesius.Jugen writes like he is talking to an old friend. He is comfortable writing for us everyday people and not some academ

I so wanted to rate this book five stars, but couldn't because the author vacillates a bit too much.

This is my first introduction to Jurgen Matthesius and I assure you it won't be my last. PUSH, when concentrating on the scriptural principles of prayer, is perhaps the best reference I have found so far. The Principles are clearly explained and the author references many, many scriptures to back up his contentions. This book will be referred to by me many times in the future and therefore kept i

Great book, really taught me a lot and allowed me to know more of God.

The author has some good stories and ideas but he can be very repetitive. He seems to think listing every imaginable argument for his views strengthens his argument but if he condensed the book by weeding out weaker arguments it would be more convincing and a better read.

The author made me feel that if I had an unanswered prayer, it was because I didn't pray hard enough. Very legalistic.
