The Power of Simple Prayer
How to Talk with God about Everything

by Joyce Meyer
Read by Sandra McCollom

      "We need to partner with God so his purposes will come to pass in our lives and those around us." - Joyce Meyer

Joyce can say a great deal about prayer. She starts by saying it’s much easier than we think. She tells us "God wants our prayer life to be natural and enjoyable." He wants our prayers to be "honest and heartfelt" and "unencumbered by rules, regulations, legalisms, and obligations." Most Believers are taught prayer needs to be a certain way, a certain posture, etc. She reminds believers they can pray anyway and anywhere. In fact, their most simple prayers can be the most powerful. Meyer promises with this audio book, believers will discover how to pray with prayers as "natural and unique as each of them are as individuals."

In the book, Meyer explains the different types of prayer - praise, worship, thanksgiving; consecration and commitment; petition and perseverance; intercession; prayers of agreement.

On Hachette’s audio version, Meyer narrates the introduction. Her daughter, Sandra McCollom, narrates the rest. Joyce narrates with the conviction of her beliefs. Sandra’s narration is that of a novice, but with practice she will quickly become an old hand. The Power of Simple Prayer is a much needed message for believers. Play it loud and pass it on.
