Read full description of the books Experiencing God Through Prayer:I found this little book to be full of wisdom. It is rare that I read female 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 complete passivity before our Lord, emphasizing that no work 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 necessarily 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.
