Lamott has coalesced everything she knows about prayer to three simple fundamentals. Asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us-- that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.

It was curiosity that attracted me to this unusual theme. I had discovered Anne Lamott by accident through a TED talk on YouTube and the message she brought there appealed to me. But this book has disappointed me a bit, because it stays rather shallow.

Not that she has no interesting things to say. Prayer and religion in general are very underrated phenomena in our society, certainly in the European context. Lamott seems to have a rather pragmatic attitude about it: praying is focusing on something that transcends you and that really helps, because it puts you with both feet in the humble place that man is entitled to. But again and again she emphasizes our smallness as a human being, our inadequacy, the mess life seems made of. In the long run that denigrating approach disappointed me, because it conceals a far greater and more interesting part of positive spirituality. Of course, in the parts 'Thanks' and 'Wow' that positive spirituality is touched upon, but only in a very superficial way.

There's also something very American (sorry, over there) to her approach: she persistently talks about her own experiences (the word "I" is written a thousand times in this little booklet) which makes this a very ego-centred approach, very near to the classic religious stories on personal conversions ("I saw the light"), to which I am really allergic. In short, this little book is not uninteresting, but it barely exceeds the level of a TED talk. ( )

A great little book that contains a lot of solid, meaningful encouragement about God and faith in a few pages. Perceptive, encouraging, amusing yet so on-target. Reading this is like having a good conversation with a close friend. ( )

A very brief dance with prayer, written for those who find the idea a bit stressful.

Not my favorite Lamott book personally, but I can certain see its usefulness to many folks who need a charming and fun approach to praying. Thanks, Anne. ( )

Thank you Anne for writing a book that is so relatable. It has helped me to grow in my walk because I no longer feel like my prayers aren't as flowery or not as good as others. I know they are from me and will be received with love. I also feel more gratitude everyday and thank you for helping me to feel more comfortable with my prayers. ( )

Another 2/5-3 star book. I very much liked the title of this book, but felt disappointed with its short length and price. It hardly merited being a hardcover, and given its subject, I was expecting some more detail, more substance. As another reviewer pointed out, the book comes across as a summary of Lamott's Facebook posts. I very much enjoy Anne's writing, and appreciate her honesty and humility, however I would have liked some more in terms of depth. ( )

Does sunset sometimes look like the sun is coming up?/Do you know what a faithful love is like?/You're crying; you say you've burned yourself. But can you think of anyone who's not hazy with smoke?

I do not know much about God and prayer, but I have come to believe, over the past twenty-five years, that there's something to be said about keeping prayer simple.
