There is some good positive messages and confidence builders in here. I just DO NOT get the concept of religiously helpful people accumulating large sums of wealth in the name of God. I believe that if we are here on earth for a SHORT amount of time compared to eternity, the MAIN goal of the faithful should be to turn wealth aside and help others learn how to be happy within themselves WITHOUT money. I think Mr. Osteen has a very determined and positive outlook but make no mistake, he would be better served to helping people learn to be happy with what they have as opposed to teaching them to want more. Some good stuff in here BUT some stuff I disagree with in principle.

This book is a great for positive thinking skills and emotional balance. I love Joel's writing skills, as well. He writes just like he speaks. It's to the matter of point and very direct. But he does not be-little or judge anyone. This book is not geared towards one one denomination, as it can be read by all. After each chapter, you can walk away with a great attitude and accept a great deal of strength and knowledge from Joel. I'd recommend this book to everyone and anyone who is looking for an upbeat and uplifting emotional ride. :O)

This book inspires you to do your best in whatever life circumstance. It gives you the encouragement to handle any situation whether good or bad. I believe all young people from the age of 11 should be encouraged to read this book.

Its sad that "christians" think we need "self help", we dont need to help ourselves but we need Christ! Jesus is the only way that we can turn from our sinful nature and be made a new creature. This book is all about "self", what was the point of Jesus dying on the cross if we are so great and we can help ourselves. That is very unbiblical to preach God will give you everything if you believe in Him, instead Jesus says "they persecuted me, they will persecute you also" . The prosperity gospel won't bring men to Christ, it will bring men to prosperity. Christians, I pray that you may look unto Christ and not to your own works because they are "like filthy rags"( Isaiah 64:6 )anyway.

views on prosperity and weath not rooted in the Bible or Christ.

This book is well written and does clearly describe one category of blessings that God provides. However, by emphasizing this one category it minimizes the fact that God provides each us with a wonderful combination of blessings that is uniquely designed for each individual. And the material portion of this combination is only one aspect that, by God's perfect design, will be smaller for some than for others. So, an excessive focus on this one type of blessing can ultimiately lead to an unfulfilled life.

While looking at Joel's writing, I realized something was way off kilter here. I thought God put us here to serve Him, not ourselves? When we hand over the scripting of our lives to Him, He restores us, but does not promise us earthly wealth and happiness. Instead, He promises us something far superior! He promises us an Eternal Kingdom FULL of beauty, and happiness, and streets of gold, and things beyond which human words can't describe!!! Until that day we can walk through Heaven with the Creator Himself, we are here to live our lives fully for Him, NO MATTER WHAT life throws our way. Joel has it backward. A better title might be 'Putting Your Life Before Christ'.

Octobet 30, 2008 reviewer has another agenda. THERE IS NO SUCH BOOK as MIRACLE PRAYERS available through B&N. And, that author's stuff is mostly garbage. Cannot believe no one else picked up on this in 6 years.

This is by far one of the most amazing inspirational books I have ever read! If you believe in God, you have the power to believe in yourself! Learn not only to respect others, but be respected. Without a doubt, this book will change your way of thinking!
