10 Quotes from Max Lucado’s ‘Before Amen’


When Prayer Flows

If you want to take you prayer life to another level of simplicity and ease, “Before Amen” is for you. It is inviting and inspiring. The focus remains on the Father all through the book. In essence, that is exactly what prayer is all about.

Enjoy a few quotes that jumped off the pages:

“Before you face your world, face you Father.”

“Prayer is conversation with God while driving to work or awaiting an appointment or before interacting with a client. Prayer can be the internal voice that directs the external action.”

“Guilt leaves a tattooed heart.”

Just as a happy child cannot mis-hug, the sincere heart cannot mis-pray”

“Prayer is the hand of faith on the door handle of your heart; the willing pull; the happy welcome to Jesus.”

“Prayers are not graded according to style.”

“You are never more like Jesus than when you pray for others.”

“An un-prayed for problem is an embedded thorn.”

“Life is a gift, albeit unassembled. It comes in pieces, and sometimes it falls into pieces.”

“God’s goal for you is wholeness.”

An Illustration that will preach

This was a gentle, smooth read. Max’s illustration of the prayers of a 10 year old girl in Helen Roseveare’s orphanage is a powerful testament of what it really means that the “Father knows what you need even before you ask” (Matthew 6:8). How would you like to receive a timely gift, the same day you prayed, only to find out that the gift was mailed 5 months earlier?. I highly recommend Max Lucado’s ‘Before Amen.’

  1. I am blessed by these words.

    “Just as a happy child cannot mis-hug, the sincere heart cannot mis-pray”

    “Prayer is the hand of faith on the door handle of your heart; the willing pull; the happy welcome to Jesus.”

    ….and I know them to be true.

  2. Reblogged this on Just me being curious and commented:
    My thanks to Walter – he has brought a post that has changed the way I will see many things past, present and future:

    “Life is a gift, albeit unassembled. It comes in pieces, and sometimes it falls into pieces.”

    Float on this words this Sunday. Meander through the blame of “bad things”, the complexity of “living right”, and our common fear of the future and all the changes we have yet to experience.

    “Life is a gift, albeit unassembled. It comes in pieces, and sometimes it falls into pieces.”

    Wow!!

    Walter thank you. Even if no one gets the book, this quote is too good to not be shared. 🙂
