    1. I was disappointed with this book. The author identifies a need in the Church to revitalize prayer: people tend to develop a list mentality. Henderson draws from his experience of drawing people away from this to a transforming prayer life that is worship-based. His desire is to instill passion into the prayer life of the church. In a nutshell, he has a 4-step method for prayer, based on the Lord's Prayer, that is used to pray through a passage of Scripture. Praying through a passage--generally [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed this book on prayer by Daniel Henderson. He brings some fresh perspective and practical insight into a Christian discipline that is often viewed as labor-some and difficult. I also enjoyed getting to participate in a corporate prayer time led by Henderson at the 2016 Shepherds conference where I observed his principles on prayer first hand. I would recommend this book to anyone who desires to grow in their prayer life, and especially to those who lead others in corporate or [...]

    3. Transforming Prayer is a challenging book. I am a habitual prayer list guy. I am a scheduled, disciplined, and structured prayer guy. I enjoyed the author's focus on worship based and God centered prayer. I was convicted that my prayer was immature and self centered. Transforming Prayer helps the reader develop the right perspective on God and not me. As I read this book I found my prayer becoming more and more spontaneous. I also enjoyed the call to corporate prayer, I've been a solo-prayer war [...]

    4. Really good book on prayer! Very glad I read it and am excited to put the principles into place in my prayer life.

    5. Fantastic book on a new perspective of prayer. Not to eliminate asking for help/requests, but to simply frame it around worship, getting our focus on God, which is the first step to any good relationship with Christ.

    6. It took 174 pages for him to get to the point of the book about how one should praybut when he did was very goodHe had explained it very well.

    7. Praise GodAs someone who has felt something missing in prayer, I now realize what it was. Emphasis needs to be on God, not me.

    8. When I think of prayer, the song Sweet Hour of Prayer comes to mind. I have always thought of prayer as an Art. To succeed I must take time to learn the proper attitude, etc. I would like to hear the words more often The Art of Praying. As DANIEL HENDERSON writes in TRANSFORMING PRAYER, prayer isn't just a "list" of bless hers, bless hims, help that family, make me stronger, please help me pay that bill and so on. Prayer allows us the chance to have an intimate relationship with God. I learned i [...]

Instead of having a genuine encounter with God, their prayer life is simply a “grocery list” of requests. So, how do you connect with God through prayer? Pastor Daniel Henderson has over three decades of e [...]

    10. Daniel presents a compelling case for the personal transformation that can occur through the practice of worship-based prayer. In his practical, conversational, and often humorous style, Daniel offers a definition of worship-based prayer and imparts a vision for the transformation it can bring about in individuals and whole churches. He then explains how to practice worship-based prayer and offers a couple of examples of how we can pray through scripture, one from the Psalms and another from the [...]

    11. Transforming Prayer by Daniel Henderson is a must read for anyone looking to revolutionize their prayer life. Henderson is a senior pastor and has been putting on worship prayer conferences around the country for years Now he takes the wisdom he has learned from these workshops and his own study and puts it in this book to help readers develop their own prayer life. The book is filled with testimonials from several people who have attended the conferences and have had their lives, both prayer li [...]

    12. Transforming PrayerBy Daniel HendersonPublished by Bethany HouseIn his newest book Transforming Prayer, pastor Daniel Henderson provides the scripture-based insight and teachings that can lead to a worship-based prayer life. With straight forward advise and clear steps to achieving a closer relationship with Christ, Henderson brings readers back to the often forgotten basics: Seek the face of Christ, not the hand, approach prayer time with praise, worship and reverence, do not get stuck in a cyc [...]

    13. This is the book I have been searching for for a very long time. I have been so dissatisfied with praying through a prayer list and have tried praying using Christ's example of prayer, but just couldn't seem to connect well. My "quiet time" consists of reading from the Bible and then praying and waiting to hear from God. As I read through this book I was encouraged to "seek God's face" and to pray during my time of Bible reading instead of waiting until the reading was completed. The book includ [...]

    14. Wow. The only reason I didn't give this book a full 5 stars is because my version had numerous formatting errors that sadly interrupt my flow of reading. BUT, I was delighted with this book from the very first chapter - and I normally don't enjoy nonfiction. I read it, highlighted in it, and made copious notes from it into my prayer journal. I am excited about beginning 2015 with a changed focus in my prayer time from seeking the hand of God to first seeking the face of God. I am so excited to r [...]

    15. It seems like prayer is one of those areas of the Christian disciplines that I'm always working to improve at. I've read several books on prayer, and this book is one of the better titles I've found. Christians need to be most concerned with God's will as they pray, rather than seeking their own will. Henderson teaches much about the worship - based prayer, and I find it very helpful. As I've begun to practice looking for the character of God within the psalms and praying through them, I am find [...]

    16. Good emphasis on praying starting with worshiping God and his character instead of a wish-list approach to "give me" or "help me" prayers *only*. Includes those types of prayers, too, but would have liked to see a meditative or journal approach, or a thematic by chapter suggested verses and prayers. Would have liked to see more attention to other Christian traditions that include prayers and meditations, vs. presenting the content as though it is new. It is relevant to evangelical Christianity b [...]

    17. I think the core of the book was a good book on prayer, but there was a lot more than just the core book. There were plenty of good thoughts and guidance into a stronger prayer life, but they were often overshadowed by the parts that just seemed to really be repetitive or not needed. Daniel's presentation of "worship prayer" was good, and I believe Biblical, but it was often pumped up to a position where, if I didn't get charged and hyped due to my prayer, than the feeling was that I had done so [...]

    18. The author makes the point that we pray "grocery lists" or "to do" lists - rather than seeking the face of God -For when we seek the face of God, we are seeking his approval and blessing. This book explains how to do that and gives practical tips later in the book for experiencing the power of Transforming Prayer. This book is an excellent resource if you wish to change up your own prayer time, that of your group or of your church.

    19. Was hoping for more "meat" from the book. A good introduction to prayer and some inspiring stories, but probably more for people who are new to the Christian faith and concept of prayer.It also feels like the author spends as much time talking up his other books as he does on the subject matter of this one.

    20. "Transforming Prayer: How Everything Changes When You Seek God's Face" by Daniel Henderson is a non-fiction book that discusses why prayer should be more than what we as Christians have made it and how we can go from an ordinary prayer life to one that is extraordinary.Read my full review here: shoopettesbookreviews

    21. I really liked the outline for prayer from the Lord's prayer that Jesus uses to teach us how to pray. I'm very excited to pray through scripture and worship while I do so. No longer separate occasions.

    22. The author argues that prayer should first and foremost be an act of praising God and that only this will prevent prays degenerating into "shopping lists". I found this a helpful book on achieving a right balance in prayer.

    23. Some great points about seeking God's face rather than his hand and praying the scriptures instead of our grocery list of needs. It is a bit long winded for me. The main points of the book could have been made in a couple of short chapters and would have had more of an impact.

    24. This book tells the importance of seeking God's face in prayer by acknowledging His character and praising Him instead of just giving a list of your requests. You can do this by personalizing a psalm or other scripture. I was blessed by reading this.

    25. Well worth the read. I have tried to use other resources from Daniel's organization, but found the material in this book the most helpful in igniting and invigorating my prayer and devotional life.
