"Prayer is the application of the heart to God, and the internal exercise of love."- Madame Guyon
A Short and Easy Method of Prayer
teaches the importance of:
  • Respectful silence.
  • Seeking Him with fidelity and love.
  • Patience in prayer.
  • Collecting yourself inwardly.
  • Total abandonment of self to God.
This basic but powerful understanding about prayer has such incredible results, that it tends to shake up the normal thoughts about prayer.
Shortly after A Short and Easy Method of Prayer was written, Madame Guyon was imprisoned - for 7 years - because her prayer styles unsettled the established church of the time.
The author wrote "...to induce the world to love God and to serve Him with comfort and success, in a simple and easy manner..." Little did she know that after her death in 1717 her "little treatise" would be published and read worldwide.
Learn what Madam Guyon knew and published nearly three hundred years ago and see your prayer life transformed!

At 28 she was a widow with three small children. At age 47 she was imprisoned because her writings about God and prayer ran contrary to the established church of the time. She lost her freedom for 7 years during which time she continued to write about the God she loved.
