Insight, Transformation, and Truth - The Power of Prayer

"All prayers are heard and answered," says Caroline Myss. Can that be true? As you come to understand the original role of prayer in personal transformation, you begin to realize that it could be no other way. In The Power of Prayer, Caroline Myss invites you to experience prayer at its deepest and most profound level - as a direct channel into union with God.

"When we pray from a place of inner stillness, our thoughts and words become sacred," Myss explains, "and we can hear the answering call of heaven."

Join her to begin a revolution in the way you pray, as you explore:

  • How and why we pray - moving beyond the stage of "petition prayer" to a place of true openness to guidance from a higher source
  • How humility allows us to bypass the ego and connect directly to the divine
  • The transformational journey - why a willingness to sacrifice the familiar and enter the unknown puts you on the path of grace
  • Prayers for healing, for the morning and evening, navigating difficult times, and expanding your capacity to act from a place of love

There comes a point in our lives when we are called to pray - when we see that our rational minds cannot make sense of the mystery of life, and we realize that we need another way. With The Power of Prayer, Caroline Myss offers new insights into the most important tool available to us on our spiritual journey - and for calling upon the grace that will never fail to guide and shelter us.

Humbling

Thank you Caroline for such a clarification on what is a prayer. This book cuts across all confusions of the mind, across the entire tapestry of prayer to dos to strike at the heart of what prayer is. Every word is a prayer unto itself and I would recommend it as a read for everyone on a spiritual path. It subtly illuminates our generation's stupidity in thinking we are superior to embrace the esoteric methods over such a simple way like a prayer to connect to divinity.. This book takes you gently back to wisdom, Thank you again!

The Voice of Truth I didn't want to Hear

This book taught me how to pray . At 66 I thought I knew how to pray...I do now. I'm at a life altering crossroad in my life and because of Caroline's guidance I'll get through this challenging period just fine. If it's true results you genuinely desire this book is for you.

Myss on the power of prayer in today's world

Myss traverses the subject of prayer with passion and purpose. She highlights that it is a sacred practice that can affect change personally and collectively. She does not shy away from explaining how we seem to have rejected prayer because of religious associations, basically throwing the baby out with the bathwater. In addition, she also talks about how many often misuse or misunderstand prayer, using it in a superficial sense to ask for more 'stuff'. Myss, in her signature style, puts the ego in its place and demands the upmost respect for the sacredness of prayer development. There are a few suggestions regarding how to pray here and there but I actually like that Myss didn't go into much detail with the hows. Prayer is a personal journey after all and Myss seems to acknowledge this by advising rather than instructing.

Disappointed

Would you try another book from Caroline Myss and/or Caroline Myss?

I felt like this person was doing a stream of consciousness type of off the cuff monologue. It was disjointed and she missed the point for me.

Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Myss’s performances?

Yes. But it needs to be a lot better.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Prayer?

I'd have her use an outline, type out what she wanted to say, and read it without ranting.

Usually a big fan, but Caroline was so negative

I have read Caroline's books and listened to her audio for over a decade. I've heard people say she is too harsh, too angry and critical sounding. I could overlook these for the meaningful messages she delivers. This time, I can't even get through the audio because she sounds like she's yelling at the listeners/audience, like she thinks we're all terrible and ignorant. The message is totally lost.

The forgotten power of prayer.

It was sometimes difficult to follow her thoughts and explanations since she is so brillant, but if you stay with it you make the necessary comnections. I am eager to listen to this book again. I can't imagine anyone else reading her books.

Keep Going

There is a lot of useful information. But you got wade through some of the negative bitter feelings that Carolyn is caught in. We’re all human. And Caroline herself says she’s not a perfect human in other talks. I had seen some other reviews calling out the negative tone that the book/talk goes to sometimes. It does have some really beautiful and insightful knowledge here. And it doesn’t stay negative. Keep going and about a third of the way through that negative tone dissipates. Thank you again Carolyn Myss for your words.

C.M. is one the greatest gifts the world has.

The narration keeps one engaged as she is passionate, brilliant and concise. I recommend taking nites as this content has power to change lives. however, if one is too wimpy for Truth, too lazy to exercise and too tired to change than she may be too much teacher.

The Ultimate Insult

Some people find Caroline Myss tone of voice aggressive and arrogant - but it has one purpose: to insult and cast you out of the darkness of your EGO - to WAKE UP, reflect and humble yourself and do good without passing suffering unto others. What a wake up call this recording was for me !!!

Not the same as the usual Caroline Myss work!

if you're expecting the same as her work on archetypes and the chakra system then prepare to be disappointed. This is a bit too dull, obvious and negative and doesn't contain any of the usual insights that she's so famous for.

Shame, because I've listened to so much of her previous work and it normally resonates so well.

nice to get some balanced point of view

Would you listen to The Power of Prayer again? Why?

Yes, to remind myself and be careful that the current new age spirituality has a tendency towards covert narcissism and what's here for me,me, and me.

Any additional comments?

As always some truth said bluntly and to the point by Caroline Myss.

Fantastic.

I enjoyed the profound information as well as Caroline's humour. It gave me so much hope and a feeling of comfort. I have started praying and it fills me with a warm feeling that I'm being looked after. I also love the idea of using prayer as a reflection of the self and getting to know your darker side. Genius.

Thought provoking.

Found the content, quite interesting, however I was left feeling quite despondent. In that, it felt that it was futile to pray for changes in your life, and that one should just accept their fate in life. Her mocking of how some people prayed for things, made me laugh at times, and I wondered if it was Caroline's personal views on life or it was based her Devine connection to the Creator. All in all it was thought provocating.
