Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To: Divine Answers to Life's Most Difficult Problems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There have been thousands of books written about prayer and millions of sermons preached about it, yet people continue to wonder: Why doesnt God answer me when I cry out to him? In light of all the problems we face in life, we want to know why God is often so “silent” when we pray to him. Anthony DeStefano, author of the bestselling A Travel Guide to Heaven, knew there had to be an answer to this mystery, so he set out on a quest to find prayers that God says yes to all the time. The result is an extraordinary new book that has the ability to dramatically change the lives of readers of all faiths.

Each short, powerful prayer in Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To addresses a particular problem people commonly face in life—from accepting the existence of God to trying to make ends meet; from getting through terrible suffering to coping with everyday stress; from overcoming fear to finding your God-given destiny. Presented with a certainty and vigor that are sure to pique the interest of even those who are not spiritually inclined, these prayers will help readers find solutions to lifes most difficult situations and provide meaningful and inspiring answers to the vexing questions we have about the purpose of our time on earth.

In a world awash with superficial self-help books and deceptive gimmicks, Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To is the real thing. Using hundreds of scriptural references to support his claims, DeStefano writes in a simple, straightforward, and uplifting manner that makes the most profound theological matters understandable to all. In the words of the author, “This is a spiritual treasure chest that is available to everyone….This book is about prayers that work—really, truly work.”

Review:

"Books on prayer are legion, most often focusing on why we should pray and how to do it correctly. DeStefano, author of A Travel Guide to Heaven, offers readers a refreshing look at this evergreen topic by focusing on 10 prayers God 'always' answers. 'Why don't people take advantage of prayers that work? One big reason is that they are so caught up in prayers that don't always work,' says DeStefano. He offers readers this guarantee: 'before you even get to the last page of this book, your life will begin to change before your eyes.' Prayers include 'God, show me that you exist,' 'God, forgive me,' 'God, give me courage' and 'God, lead me to my destiny.' DeStefano uses the Christian Bible as the foundation for his work, not offering quick fixes but instead expounding on the need for true repentance, right motives and genuine commitment. More conservative camps will most likely cluck at what they see as DeStefano's lack of firmness about salvation as a prerequisite to both heard and answered prayer, but a careful reading shows that the author understands faith, not selfishness, is the foundation for these prayers. His cheerful style and heartfelt faith make this an optimistic look at a timeless subject. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
