The real secret to creating and sustaining an abundant, joyous, and fulfilled life has been hiding in plain sight — in the power of the prayer that unites two billion Christians worldwide, the prayer that each one of them knows by heart.

True happiness and success can’t just be wished for. The real secret to fulfillment lies in using the Lord’s Prayer as part of an ongoing spiritual practice that leads to real and lasting change in the soul — change that will manifest itself in earthly, tangible ways. Each chapter in The Source of Miracles is a guide to one of seven steps in that process, corresponding to a primary teaching of the prayer: faith, surrender, service, abundance, forgiveness, obstacles, and love. Each chapter also includes meditations, affirmations, and other activities designed to help readers work through life’s challenges.

In her bestselling fiction, Kathleen McGowan has popularized the world of Christian esoterica, a unique place where New Age and Christianity meet, making ancient teachings new and powerful. The Source of Miracles harnesses the wisdom of those traditions at a time of great material and spiritual uncertainty, when the need for signposts on the road to success has never been more acute.


Around Christmas I find myself reading more spiritually themed books than usual. I was curious to see what this author had to offer with the basis of transforming your life with prayer and spirituality.

I understand that prayer and faith can play a large part in your life. No matter what your faith is, prayer usually is part of it. I do believe that with prayer, anything can be possible. I belive that God will answer your prayers, but not in ways you expect sometimes. This book gave me the feeling that if I just pray, everything will happen the way I want it. Not so though. Prayer can’t fix everything. God is guidance and God knows what happens. Whether we pray or not.

Overall though, this was a good read for something quick and religious themed. The author writes well. The book flows nicely and is structured great. A book that I liked to read, but not something I would read over and over again.
