    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    ""Prayer Opens the Door for God to Work""

    Sometimes you can begin a book and immediately know it is not the time in your life to read it. But then you pick up Simple Prayer and you know it's the right book and the right time.
    It was a pleasure to hear Mrs. Meyers daughter read this book. I enjoy when family works together in the Kingdom. Her pace and tone was good.
    I received soooooo many nuggets from this listen I need a paper copy of the book. From asking God to teach you how to pray to explaining what prayer is Meyers shares her own experiences with prayer and what worked and didn't.
    An amazing, resource, tool and a fantastic listen. We really need to KISS

    "Great content, bad narrator"

    I love Joyce Meyer. She always breaks things down into simple concepts and gives great examples. I have been a Christian for almost 25 years, and only recently decided to get serious about being Christ-like. I realized after 25 years, I wasn't sure about the techniques of how to pray! The book explains that prayer is not complicated. We don't have to get on our knees, or even close our eyes. We can just pray (talk to God all day). It's simple. The book is well written.
    Please, please, please get a different narrator. The book is SO good and the narrator makes it difficult at times to stay engaged. I also didn't care for the music breaking up the sections, but that doesn't much matter, does it.
    Even with the difficult-to-listen-to narration, I highly recommend you still listen to this book. It changed my prayer life and my confidence.
