Excellent

Answered a lot of my questions about prayer and affirmed some of the things I had already found to be true for me but wondered if they were true for others. God bless you, Joyce, I definately think of you as a mentor. I like your style as you do put the lessons of the Bible in perspective for everyday life.

The narrator

Didn't like her voice - not a bad one, but for me it was distracting

The Power of Simple Prayer is EXCELLENT

This so clearly explains many questions I have always had about Prayer and my lifetime difficulty in Praying. At 70 years old I've always heard Prayers and also Pray daily but afraid I just really don't understand HOW to Pray. Unable to Pray aloud in front of others because I just don't know how or what to say. I listened to the Audible book and am now going to purchase the book itself (one for myself and one for my little sister who has had same problem). We've needed a 'Teach Me How To Pray' guide. This, Joyce, is the best of your books I've listened to in my search for guidance I'm
always asking Our Father for. I never doubt God answers my Prayers because HE always has. Am still afraid to lead in open Prayers though. Have wondered if God's answer is to continue with my silent Prayers and let others speak their's in public.

Never miss your shows and they have helped me so very much in understanding and realizing I can 'let go' of so much guilt I've hung onto from the past.

Thank you, Joyce, for myself and the tons of others I feel your Preachings, books and audibles have helped.

Love love love

This is an amazing tool. I commute 45 minutes each way to work and home and I have listened to this book in my car many many times. It is so helpful, refreshing, calming, heartening! It is insightful and fresh and wonderful. Joyce has a way of expressing things in a way no one else can. She tells her own story and invites you to take a look at yourself and your life and find your own way. Did not love the narration, it was done by Joyce's daughter (she seemed kind of wooden and lacked inflection) I wish Joyce would have done it herself. Overall- great listen.

Another great one from Joyce!!

Joyce always has practical, simple help. Her books are tremendous. Her reader, though, I find boring.

Love Joyce Myer.

The narrator is her daughter, just awesome, she actually made prayer come to light and life. I was very impressed with all the scriptures to back up what they were talking about. Will read again. Enjoy

Good if you like the author

If you already familiar with the writing of Joyce Meyer you will know what to expect. She speaks frequently in all her books about her calling to teach and lead and how it came directly from God, along with her conversations with Him looking for answers. This book goes there more than others and dives headfirst into her methods for having a conversational prayer life with God. In short, this is good, solid advice on how to overcome obstacles to prayer. Without going into detail, I have always had problems when I read books by Joyce Meyer. Nothing with the specific content but with how she chooses to get her point across. There is always a lot of 'me' before she gets to the point and sometimes my mind is in a better place for that than at other times.

Her daughter is the narrator and it takes some getting used to as she is a cross between Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseanna Danna and Emily Latella whenever she says "God". There is a definite flat pitch and a hard colloquial sound to her speaking but she is easy to understand and follows a good pace. She definitely takes getting used to and Audible only has Joyce in this sample.

Prayer is like breathing!

Helped shed light on elements of my life that affect or are affected by prayer and how prayer should be like breathing - a life sustaining necessity and not a chore to be done.
Some elements were thought provoking causing me to take a look at my actions towards God and others.

Awesome awesome awesome

This is a must read for every Christian in my opinion. The insights God gives through Joyce, is a part of the battlefield of the mind. I have had many of the examples given in this book happen to me. God bless the word and people who decipher it and apply it to today's world. Jesus had the problems with people we have today it is awesome to know this. WWJ Think and WWJ Do solutions to the things that come against us in our walk with God. Thank Joyce! Praise and thanks be to God

So Helpful!

I thought this book was brilliant. Joyce covers a wide range of topics to do with prayer. Not only is this book helpful, but is firmly rooted in the Word.
