Overview

What is prayer? How do we apprehend communion with God? In "The Path of Prayer" Chadwick leads us on an excursion into the depths of prayer. We are admonished not to simply learn to say our prayers, but to pray our prayers. Expressing the heart and character of God as revealed in Scripture, Chadwick teaches us the overwhelming necessity of a proper attitude of heart when approaching the Throne of Grace. By Biblical example and precept prayer is defined and explained. Prayer begins with the contemplation of God, and this we are compelled to do. Sincere contemplation of God, His majesty, His ability, His relationship with mankind, His ineffable benevolence, will have a profound effect on the soul, and can in no wise leave a man the same as he entered into the secret chamber.
"All true prayer, the prayer that prevails, is personal, intimate, and original."

Meet the Author

Samuel Chadwick was born in Burnley, Lancashire in the industrialized north of England into a devout Methodist family. His father worked in a cotton mill and, at the age of 8, Samuel joined him, working 12-hour shifts. At the age of 21, he became a lay pastor at nearby Stacksteads.

After a major awakening and deepening of his faith in his late twenties via a personal epiphany after which he burned all his early sermons, he moved on to larger congregations and greater popularity. After a few years preaching in Edinburgh and at a new chapel in Glasgow he was ordained in 1890 and returned to England as Superintendent of the Leeds Mission.

In 1904 Chadwick began lecturing weekly at Cliff College, a Methodist lay training centre, commuting from Leeds. In 1907, he was appointed to a faculty position as a biblical and theological tutor. Although he was doing mission work in the South Yorkshire coal fields when the Principal of Cliff died in 1912, he immediately returned to the school and was formally appointed principal in 1913, remaining in that post for the rest of his career.

Famed outdoor evangelist Leonard Ravenhill was educated at Cliff College during Chadwick's tenure.
