Lacks authenticity
Background music was nice however I felt the reader come across a little bit false in his expounding of the prayers

Excell choice for every Christian!
What a blessing these Prayers have been to me. Every time I listen to them, my heart melts before God and I thank Him for the Brethren who made these prayers so effective! May God Bless You All. What's more....Give some more!!!

Great Resource
York and Hoppe have great reading voices. I use this both personally and at the church I pastor. Many of them are just scripture. If you like audiobooks and if music/speaking help you to pray, you'll love this resource.

I really wanted to like this
(for the audio book)

There is such a gaping hole in the market for products like this so I was very happy to have found this and really really wanted to like it... but I didn't... at all.

I guess my biggest problem is with the narrator. I don't know anything about him and don't know if that is his natural speaking voice but somehow it sounds false and put on like a spoof of on bad Shakespearean actor. Its a little frustrating, because he tones it down once in a while which shows it could have been done better. Sorry, just my honest reaction. A put on voice for prayer just says all the wrong things to me.

There were some nice selections but using the KJV was also a bad choice IMO. The generations that knew that version are all but gone now and I don't really buy into the charm of using archaic and unfamiliar language.

Ah well, enough from me. You get the idea. I was very disappointed. As far as the audio format goes, there is much better free stuff floating around out there. I guess when I actually pay for a similar product I expected it to be at least as good.

Sorry, not my favorite
I read (that is listen) to audio books while I drive as I drive about 80 miles per day in commuting and picking up a granddaughter. This is the first christianaudio book that I have not listened to from beginning to end. I thought that I would be hearing prayers that I was familiar with, but with little exception, the prayers were foreign to me.

Michael York’s voice was pleasant and added to the experience and the music was very nice and also added to the prayers. Since this is an audio book, it isn’t convenient to have a table of contents or footnotes so it was difficult to know what was coming up next or the basis for the prayers.

While many of the topics were very meaningful, since you cannot conveniently jump to a prayer that may answer you particular needs at the time, the book leaves you with listening to one prayer after another.

After listening to most of the book, I cannot say that I particularly remember any prayer that was especially meaningful to me to remember.

My prayer life is much more personal talking with God directly and I did not find this book very helpful for my own prayer life.

I received this audio book free from Reviewers Program in exchange for posting a review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
