Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jul 02, Adam Parker rated it liked it Shelves: I found this little book to be full of wisdom. It is rare that I read madsme authors, especially those that write in this category, but I am glad I picked this one up. It is very evident that Madame Guyon wrote this in the paradox of confident humility. Not seeking glory or honor for herself, while at the same time firm in her conviction that God is everything and we must spur one another on towards Him.

That idea also presents a paradox within her own book, because her main theme seemed to be c I found this little book to be full of wisdom. That idea also presents a paradox within her own book, because her main theme seemed to be complete passivity before our Lord, emphasizing that no thrrough by us, whatsoever, could bring us closer to Him.

She was very clear that we must simply cease all activity before him, remain silent, trust wholly, and allow Him to come to us. While she did use scriptures regularly and throughout the book, the basis seemed to be mostly experiential, which I don’t madane have and issue with.

Again it is clear that she was motivated by the love of Christ and had much wisdom to share, and I am blessed because I read it. If you do decide to pick up the book, I recommend you take it chapter by chapter and implement the model of prayer she lays out as you read through it. I did not do it this way, but I think it would have been more beneficial. Written three hundred years ago it’s relevant today.


Wish I had this book months ago. Oct 01, Stuart rated it really liked it Shelves: One of my favorite little books about prayer. Experifncing is a practical guide about how to experience communion with God in prayer. I really enjoyed it.

Experiencing God Through Prayer

Mow, if I can only put it into practice: I think this is going to take a little while So simple, but not very easy. Just from the introduction, I can already sense Madame Guyon’s humbleness through her writing.

I am very much drawn and encouraged, as she begins by reassuring the reader that her message is simple and attainable by all: If you are looking for a deeper walk with the Lord, this book is anointed and will help you pull into a fresh anointing of prayer with Experiencingg.

Read it through many times!

An earthly father is epxeriencing leads to be addressed with love and respect because it comes from the heart rather than dry, yod, elaborate words. Dec 14, r b rated it it was ok Shelves: I think this is the book I read by Madame Guyon years ago.

A novice to the Christian experience and prayer I liked Guyon’s mystical writings. Consequently, I gave the book to my pastor’s wife who never gave the back.

She wasn’t one to not return things. My take on this is she was trying to protect me from something she thought would led me astray. Which was dear of her but unnecessarily.

The Spirit leads us into truth and way from error. Someday think I’ll ask her if she remembers the book and s I think this is the book I read by Madame Guyon years ago.
