    I read this book over 20 years ago and have re-read it in part many times over the years. This book goes to the heart of the immense power women have when they empty their minds and hearts and lay all that is needed, all they are thankful for...all of everything in their lives whether good or bad, before the Lord in simple prayer. This book is perfectly written and will draw in even the most doubting person who sees prayer as unnecessary or just a lot of babble. I will keep this book on my shelv I read this book over 20 years ago and have re-read it in part many times over the years.

    A very practical and informative guide to prayer. The many real life stories told throughout the book keep the pages turning fast all the while you are learning practical steps to improve or simply start your own prayer life.

    Generally a helpful, encouraging book. I noticed some ambiguity from an early chapter about knowing/praying for God's will and subsequent chapters where some of the prayers are fairly general in what is prayed for. Apart from that I think it was biblical and solid and a spur to better prayer. One thing among many that struck me was the idea that 'God doesn't make mistakes'. A powerful concept!

    I have prayed many times before. Lately though I have heard others pray and I felt that I had a lot of growing to do to pray effectively. I knew my prayer life needed some work before. I wanted to feel like I prayed effective prayers. I've never been comfortable praying out loud. This book has helped me to understand the basics and the things that can stand in the way. I know that my prayers can be simple and still effective. I also have a better idea of where and how to start praying better for I have prayed many times before.

This book isn't the newest book, but it has made the most sense to me. It breaks it down simply, and yet it still shows you the power of prayer and praying for one another. Parts of the book talk about praying in groups and prayer chains, but the concepts can all work in your personal prayer life.

    This is my second read and I think I’m throwing it away. The practical ideas were helpful, and the descriptions of answered prayers are inspiring. BUT I am uncomfortable with her facile explanations for tragedy and the almost condescending and offensive reasons she gives people for their suffering, like God took away three of the author’s babies and years later told her it was so she and her husband could finish 7 years of schooling!!! God doesn’t kill babies for higher education!! There are a f This is my second read and I think I’m throwing it away.

God doesn’t kill babies for higher education!! There are a few statements like that which were pretty much intolerable and theologically heretical and dangerous. Another specific statement; After losing her 7 month old daughter, God told Evelyn “it was for your profit. If you’re going to be a pastor’s wife, you will have to understand some of these things.” Are you kidding me with this?!

    The book was selected for a small Women's Bible Study group at an interdenominational church that I have been attending. I thought it was timely with the release of the movie War Room, which also has to do with prayer. Effective, fervent prayer, I might add. Evelyn's book is great for beginners. It is simple and easy to read of twelve short chapters, and can truly help if the person/group puts their heart and truly desires to see that our prayers can move the hand of God and miracles happen.

In our own lives and for those we are praying for. The book is a bit "dated" with reference from the 1960's, cassette tapes, etc.

    Years ago I read this book and it revolutionized my prayer life. Now, I am reading through it again with several other women. The chapters are short and focused. The author's aim was to get even the most reluctant person to pray...Because prayer changes things. Also look for the book, What Happens When God Answers Prayer. It's a solid follow up to What Happens When Women Pray. Years ago I read this book and it revolutionized my prayer life. Now, I am reading through it again with several other women.

    Refreshing and easy to read without being condescending. The author gives lots of anecdotes including her own failures at times, and shares the simple power of prayer. She demonstrates how unforgiveness or sin can close the 'channels' to God, and challenges people to pray simply and in faith. Appropriate for men as well as women! Re-read nearly 14 years later, and appreciated just as much. Thought-provoking.

    One woman gets together with 7 other ladies to learn what happens when women pray... and it turns out to sweep across her home, church, community, and even beyond to change people's perspective on prayer. I thought this was very straightforward and focused on the right areas without being overbearing. Simple yet challenging! It made me want to get on my knees and start praying, which is exactly what a book on prayer should do! :-)

    Years ago I read this book with a group of women and it enhanced our prayer lives. Of course it would be a great book for all people, not just women, but Evelyn Christenson was ask to work on the project with women so she wrote it from that perspective. The short, focused chapters are especially helpful for extemporaneous prayer in a group. Prayer is effective because we pray to an effective, eternal, all-powerful God in Jesus' name.

    Definitely enjoyed it. Thought it was a good blend of strategies of how to pray as well as examples of what happened when they were implemented. Also liked how the author shared her failures as well as successes, showing the reader she is far from having stuff perfected. This is something I would recommend.

    so inspirational, down to earth, easy to read. Really inspirational and motivating. My question is - why can't I finish reading these great books ? They're obviously life changing and very important. Busy busy devil-man

    Although a little dated the information giving on prayer is first class. Such information doesn't really date. It's an easy, straightforward read and gives the reader a sense of God at work answering prayer. Inspiring. Don't know why I've waited all these years to read it!

    Read this many years ago. We did it as a study and it was life changing. I think I still have my notes somewhere. Must search them out. Maybe revisit the book and read it again.This book should be read at every new year to start the year off right.

    I read this book in a women's bible study group about 13-14yrs ago and came across it in my book cabinet and thought I'd reread it. I read a lot of books but the ones I really like, I keep.

    Encourages praying in a familiar tone, and with a depth of intimacy and faith the God cares about everything we care about and is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.

    A mixed bag. Some really good suggestions for how to pray effectively to get your prayers answered. Confess your sins before presenting your prayers. Pray for requests, not outcomes. Pray for God’s will. The author also has great tips for praying in groups: Don’t mentally compose your prayer while someone else is praying - just pray instead, and be assured the words will come when it is your turn (and a bit of silent pause is not a sin).

Less impressive, to me, was the constant emphasis on praying for the salvation of others, the subtle suggestion that yoga and meditation were somehow linked to the occult, and the more blatant suggestion that gathering with people of other beliefs was not desirable. I read a lot of books on faith and can find myself annoyed when the author appears to lean fundamental (or be very much so); this one hit my annoyance nerve. I also hoped for more tangible tips: Give me examples of praying for an outcome and praying a request, praying for God’s will and not doing so. The same was true with the section on prayer chains; I’m on a chain and sometimes find myself frustrated by their limitations; the section on chains seems not to have been updated since the book was first published in the 1990s, when phone chains were the norm; I was disappointed not to find tips on managing chains in our era of email, texting and social media. Recommended, with these provisos.

    What happens when women pray (in small groups) is that they achieve greater levels of efficacy in their church and community lives. This is not news. The book was a bestseller in English. Why did I buy it in Spanish? Because it's a family tradition: we go to a certain bookstore, we buy the Spanish edition of a book that's available in both languages. Encouraging them to stock books in Spanish was the goal. Now I think Spanish may be the majority language in the surrounding neighborhood.

Anyway, before buying the Spanish edition I had read the English edition, at a library. The women for and about whom this book was written were the mothers of the baby-boomers, many of whom had never had a full-time job, so this document of how Prayer Meeting became a means to empowerment is part of history. It probably seems quaint to the young. It definitely contains nothing likely to surprise baby-boomers who've not already read it, so buy it for history (and/or language study) purposes.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is a wonderful book on the power of prayer. I think it would be an excellent teaching tool. I know there are newer editions and even leader guides and study guides and am really excited to one day go through those. It's really not that long of a book but if you're reading it with the expectation of learning I'd read it slowly - don't rush through it.
