    The perfect prayer retreat

    I bought this hoping to learn more ABOUT prayer, but after a short introduction, Matthew Henry leaps right into prayer. There you are swimming in his prayer of scripture passages drawn from all over the Bible. The feeling is intimate - looking to a man's deepest concerns prayed in scripture back to God. The six chapters explore first Adoration, then Confession, Petition, Thanksgiving, Intercession and then Closing. At the end of each chapter is the list of footnotes - about eight pages. There is much to learn here, not in the usual way, but by just jumping in and praying. I confess I haven't read all 312 pages; however it will be perfect for a prayer retreat or when I am too hurt to think of what to say.

    Matthew Henry is ALWAYS worth it!

    Not for people who want easy fluff or contemporary touchy feely, but if you are looking for serious meat with true Biblical exposition, this is your type.

    Recommend for new believers in Jesus Christ

    This book will help anyone not familiar with how to pray. I found it to simplistic for me, however I have been a believer for over 40 years.. I got the book to see if I was missing anything. It is well done, just not for me.

    No Method

    I saw Bold Headings and underneath them: Bible Verses. Bold Headings of csomething like: "Heads of state", "For the unjust", "For People who..." then Bible verses, but no I couldn't see a method or for a baby Christian any help to a method for prayer. I recommend to Everyone Kay Arthur's books for the true Method to Prayers and Bible reading. Sorry could not follow through.

    This is a very good book on prayer. If you are in a hurry it may not be
    for you. But I can learn a lot from anyone who has spent years in
    prayer. Men of God everywhere seem to be primarily men of prayer.
    There must be a reason for that. One thing I find refreshing in this
    "older" book on prayer is the deep reverence and sense of
    preparation Matthew Henry finds necessary prior to really entering the
    "asking" part of prayer. When I contrast this with my own,
    flippant, less purposeful, half hope and half thought prayer, I should
    be ashamed. At some point I am going to really have to study each of
    the hundreds of verses quoted. Most of them "sound" familiar
    to my churched ear but aren't right there in my memory for recall and
    use in prayer or open examination of myself before God. I am somewhat
    afraid of adopting a particular method on prayer for myself because I
    know I can't "merit" my way to God or impress and please Him
    in the manner in which I approach Him. I can, however, offend Him I'm
    sure. Method for the sake of method becomes works and a trap.
    Arbitrary human effort in a particular self-discipline with the intent
    of pleasing God or earning his favor is a trap. I think of Brother
    Lawrence and Thomas Haire when I think of great men of God and prayer
    who absolutely reject any merit value in a particular method to God.
    They seemed to have reached a point of actual continual prayer in their
    lives. However, it is clear that some structure is necessary. Those
    men would be the first to say we must be purposeful in prayer, and not
    wander in thought. So a general outline or approach as a guide to the
    mind can be beneficial to organize our thoughts and humble us. But in
    and of itself, my method or the amount of time I spend going over the
    same points each day, do not cause God to hear me any better. The
    indisputable proof to me that structure is important and some method is
    useful (and maybe mandatory) is Jesus' teaching on the Lord's Prayer.
    The last part of this book is an exposition of the Lord's prayer line by
    line. The general outline Matthew Henry follows in his own method is
    similar to the Lord's Prayer if you consider his outline.

    Great Read

    Shows you how and what to pray for. Gives the scriptures that go along with what you are praying for. The only thing I would have liked to have seen done different is to have the scripture reference with the text instead of a list at the end of the chapter.
