We all pray . . . some.
We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.
But wouldn't we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?
Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.
We aren't the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.
And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn't we use the same?

The first book I read of Max Lucado's was In the Eye of the Storm. I have been a fan ever since and have read most if not all of his books. I love the way that he takes truth from the Bible and weaves stories from his life into his books. He speaks in simple terms that you as the reader can relate to. In Before Amen he takes a look at the Lord's Prayer in a new and enlightening way.
I highly recommend this book!
