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

There have been thousands of books written about prayer and millions of sermons preached about it, yet people continue to wonder: Why doesn’t 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 life’s 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.”

Wonderfully written, the book itself is THE ANSWER most of us have been waiting for. The more I read, the more I realized this man was singled out by God to take His message to the masses without all the do's and don't's we've all had to put up with. It is refreshingly simple in it's message but it does the job of digging right through all the muck we call our defenses. After finishing the book I realized I had been changed by it's message. It felt so soothing and comforting, as if he and I were having this conversation and here was someone who understood where I was coming from. I truly wish I could purchase hundreds of copies and give them all away to my friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else who would read it. The Ten Commandments of life - brought to you in such a way that you can truly see and feel God. Yes. You need this book and I challenge you to read it and not admit it's impact on you. That's why it was written, for believers all over the world, and for unbelievers also. Go ahead and let this man introduce you to your Maker - better now than later.

The book gave me answers that I needed when I felt God was not moving or hearing me. I still feel on "hold" with God in my life, but this book has given me hope that He will answer when the time is right.

When I first read this book, I couldn't believe that its seemingly simplistic writing style could touch me as deeply as it has. I first heard about this book from a magazine article about a mother who had lost her teenaged daughter in a car crash. She was, naturally, inconsolable, and found this book in a bookstore. After having read it, she wrote the article in order to inspire others to get through such devastating situations, and probably also to help in her own healing process.

I take this book to chapel with me every week and this is where I have read most of it. As a matter of fact, I am in my fourth reading of this wonderful book, and get a little more out of it each time. Also, I have given copies of Ten Prayers to friends and my own daughters.

The book's logic and simplicity are really an easy read, one of those reads which inspires one to close the book after a chapter, to close your eyes and rest your head back. These are prayers one is not used to praying, yet they work in the most ordinary ways. They have certainly seen me through when regular prayers don't work.

This is not a denominational work, yet it is profoundly religious. Yes, I said religious, not spiritual, because the author draws on many religions to emphasize what he is trying to say. Yet, one doesn't need to be a member of an organized religion to benefit from his writing. One of the conclusions I drew from this book is that the author uses plain common sense to deliver the messages. One can hardly argue with that.

I recommend this book to anyone who needs reinforcement of his basic beliefs or anyone looking for common sense guidance in life.

There aren't words to describe how much this book has changed my life! I have read so many prayer books and tried to fallow what they say, but this book informed me of all the things that were always to difficult for me to understand and brought me to a new place in my life. Since reading this book, even when the odds have been against me, I've had to continuously look to God for answers, and I haven't been let down once. It truely is the best book I've ever read!!! I can't wait to read the first book that DeStefano wrote.

I bought this trying to ensure my prayers are being said like they should. although this book is good. I have realized that God hears every pray we pray. It Must be in HIS WILL.. not yours

I happened to fall upon this book during a time when I was pondering a career change, and was praying for a certain job. Not sure how I found the link to this book, but I'm glad I did! I read one chapter each night and feel that my faith is now stronger. This book is guaranteed to change your life after reading it... you may never look at prayer the same again. They only had 1 copy left when I went to pick it up at the bookstore; I was about to buy another one for my mother but will be sure to just give her mine. This is a book that you will always want to reread for inspiration.

This was a very well written book! Talk about a quick read! DeStefano's other book - A Travel Guide to Heaven - is also very good. Hope this guys keeps 'em coming.

I really loved reading this book. It was warm and comforting. It helped me see how important faith is and how beautiful life is, no matter what we may have to face. I highly recommend it.

This book was amazing. Before reading this book I did not know how to pray. Now my prayers have meaning. This book was a real page turner, but I believe the the last few pages changed my life. The author recounts the story of how his wife worked so hard to become a lawyer, but she decided to take a break from law school and took a part time job as a teacher. He tells how teaching changed her life and helped her get through one of the most difficult times of her life. I could not stop sobbing after reading this section. I highly recommend this book for anyone who feels lost and emotionally numb. If you are ready to make a change in your life, read this book.

One of my adult children, educated in a Catholic grade school told me she didn't know what it was o.k. to pray for. I was a convert, raised in a protestant church. I really didn't know how to pray either. This book is a good, practical everyday guide to prayer regardless of a person's religious background. I bought several copies and gave them to family members, one of whom had a Catholic high school education.

It wasn't the best book I've read but wasn't the worst either. The author had a few good points that I liked.
