This will without a doubt teach you the power of prayer. What prayer can do in your life and in the life of others. I urged my Pastor to please make it available to our church. So that we would have a praying church. Most of all I longed to have a closer relationship with God. I was really going through a real dry time in prayer. Many do not come to the Lord because they do not know how to pray. Buy this book it will help guide you to a praying life. Thank you so much.

Few books on prayer have had the staying power of this book by R.A. Torrey, Bible scholar and evangelist of the early 20th Century. As the first superintendant of the Moody Bible Institure, he was influential in preparing many lives for future ministry including my grandfather who became an early missionary to Korea. This book is curiously dated and timeless. It is timeless in its application of scriptural truths, while dated or seemingly so in its examples. He speaks to a time when Christian men and women were in agreement on the dangers of dancing, cards and the theater and felt that those who practiced such would not have answered prayer. Torrey gives a very convincing argument for the efficacy of prayer, explaining also how to pray, who can pray, why pray, what interferes with prayer, how to overcome hindrances to prayer and what prayer can do for a person or a nation.
