William Wilberforce 17591833 led the twentyyear fight to abolish the British slave trade. He championed medical aid for the poor prison rehabilitation education for the deaf and restrictions on child labour. Wilberforce found nothing more effectual than private prayer and the serious perusal of the New Testament. He maintained All may be done through prayer almighty prayer. He insisted that in the calmness of the morning before the mind is heated and wearied by the turmoil of the day you have a season of unusual importance for communing with God and with yourself. He seized upon such opportunities believing God will prosper me better if I wait on him. 365 Days with Wilberforce is a collection unlike any other. Drawing directly from Wilberforces writings the selections in this book illustrate how God sustained and guided him. Those who seek to walk their pilgrims progress aright will find much to ponder pray over and treasure.
