Before Amen

Full Product Description

In Before Amen, Max Lucado helps you breathe in heaven and exhale God to all you meet in your daily life. With this highly-readable, highly-transformative book the well loved master storyteller shares with you the secrets of effective, life enhancing prayer.

Beginning with his own honest confession - declaring himself a prayer wimp - Max admits he could pray much better. We all pray... sometimes.

"On tear-stained pillows we pray. In grand liturgies we pray. At the sight of geese in flight, we pray. Quoting ancient devotions, we pray... But wouldn't we all like to pray more? Better? Deeper? Stronger? With more fire, faith, or fervency?"

Before Amen is among Max Lucado's most personal, honest and humble books to date. Anyone who wants to pray more, better and stronger, with more fire, faith and fervour will find Max's own failures reassuring as they - like him, seek deeper connection with God through prayer.

A richer prayer life is not about prayers that are better or more eloquent than others. Quite the opposite. Lucado says that humility combined with confidence provides a God-given prayer strength. If you're never without prayer, then you're never without hope.

No one boils down spiritual truths into as concise and potent a form as Max Lucado. Join Max in 'Before Amen' as he delves into the depths of prayer to help you build a more confident platform for taking your prayer life to the next level.
