Anything: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
What if you told God you would do anything...and he took you up on it? Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move you to stop chasing things that just make you feel happy and start living a surrendered life that matters.
In the years since the initial release of Anything, God continued to stretch Jennie Allen and her faith because of the courageous prayer of surrender that she and her husband, Zac, prayed, "God, we will do anything. Anything." Previously caught in the dizzying haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie went on to begin living out the adventure God had written for them - to include becoming the founder of IF: Gathering, an organization to gather, equip, and unleash the next generation to live out their purpose.
This newly revised edition boasts updates throughout, including:
- A new introduction
- An in-depth Bible study component for those who hope to lead a study on this topic
- And more!
Join Jennie on an adventure to discover your anything, those things that actually mean nothing until you know the God truly worth giving it all up for. And when you do, that will change everything.
Anything is also available in Spanish, Lo que me pidas

I think most of us want to live a life surrendered to God, but we don't know how, or we are afraid to give Him everything because we are afraid of what He might ask of us.
God does great things through surrendered people.
Anything by Jennie Allen is a fairly quick read. It is written in first person, conversational style. While the tone is light, the content is anything but. It will challenge you, not only to surrender to God but to grow in your faith. If you are truly surrendered to God you can't help but grow in your faith.
We are supposed to want God all the time for everything and trust him with every aspect of our lives.
Jennie shares many personal stories with the reader, the trials and triumphs she faces as she attempts to live a surrendered life. She discusses the things that keep us from praying a prayer of complete surrender in section one. In section two she explains how she came to the point of being ready to surrender everything, and in section three she describes what her life has looked like as she has grown into the role of a surrendered life.
The very thought of doing anything demands everything.
I appreciate the flow of the book, the easy tone, and the many nuggets of truth that are woven into the fabric of the story. There is a lot we can learn from Jennie's book about living a life that is completely surrendered to Christ. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to go deeper in their spiritual walk.
Sometimes this led to big adventurous steps like adopting a boy from Africa, but most of the time it involved simple acts of love like taking a meal to a sick family or listening to a hurting friend.
She described her remarkable shift in perspective in very normal terms: “What we once did in order to ‘matter’ or to ‘be seen’ we forgot all about. We matter and are seen because of love.”
I can relate to the desire to matter. I want to make a difference. But perhaps I’ve been going about it the wrong way. I was captivated by the message of Anything and I can’t wait to put it into practice by surrendering myself to anything God wants from me. I’ve been resisting what God wants. I could sense it while reading the book, so I am ready to stop resisting now. This was a timely read for me. I needed this.
If you’re ready for a change in perspective, check out Anything by Jennie Allen.

What can I say except that I highly recommend you read this book! As much as I know I should write Allen, I come away finding it hard to do so as you come to view Jennie through her writing as a friend. Her writing style is conversational and it flows so well. I picked this book up and had no problem turning page after page, eager to read more. She hit home with a lot of what she said (at least for me). She is real, honest, open and you can just picture her sitting across a table from you inviting you to share in her story. This book is interesting, encouraging and provoking.
There are a few typos early on but just overlook them and know that the content is so much more important and powerful. Open yourself up to God and what He wants to say to you through this book and do in your heart and life.
P.S. I got my husband (who isn't a big reader) to read this on a overnight trip he took. He finished it just as he touched down back at home!
honest questions, concerns and challenges that we all face in life. The thought of being selfless and pouring oneself into the lives of other to bless them and glorify God is a great challenge! I've responded by taking it on. I hope that Jennie writes more books, her writing style and honest vulnerability is refreshing and encouraging.
