"Before Amen: A Worship Collection" is the music companion to the new book from bestselling author Max Lucado, "Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer (Thomas Nelson)." The album will be released via Integrity Music on October 7, 2014. It will contain songs that enhances the theme of how to pray more, better and stronger, with more fire, faith & fervency. Writes Lucado, "Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in Heaven. You are never without hope because you are never without prayer."
"Before Amen" is Lucado's most personal and candid humble book to date. It was written out of his personal desire to draw closer to Jesus through prayer, Calling himself a "recovering prayer wimp" and offering specific ways people can experience a heart connection with God through prayer. "Prayer, for most of us, is not defined by a month-long retreat, or even an hour of meditation," writes Lucado. "Prayer is conversation with God, between appointments, while walking the hallway to class, or interacting with a client."
Lucado believes that a vibrant prayer life does not mean your prayers are better or more eloquent than others. Quite the opposite. Lucado says humility combined with confidence provides a God-given prayer strength. Writes Lucado: "Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven. You're never without hope because you are never without prayer."
He builds Before Amen on a simple "pocket prayer," distilling all the prayers of the Bible into one that is easy-to-remember and as near as your pocket.
You are good.
I need help.
They need help.
In Jesus' name, amen.
