"You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives" (James 4:3). What might the right motives be? In Prayer: A Holy Occupation Oswald Chambers shares his heart's desires in prayer to help you know Jesus better, to discern His will, and to make Christ's will your own. This is not merely a "pray harder" book--editor Julie Ackerman Link has carefully selected a collection of Oswald Chamber's insights to enrich your prayer life. As the author of the all-time bestselling devotional My Utmost for His Highest, Chambers brings you a treasure-trove of wisdom and insight.
Oswald Chambers was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1874. Converted in his teen years under the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, he studied art and archaeology at the University of Edinburgh before answering a call from God to the Christian ministry. He then studied theology at Dunoon College. From 1906-1910 his career of service took him to the United States and Japan, but the two outstanding periods of his work were as principal of the Bible Training College at Chapham, England (1911-1915), and his ministry to Australian and New Zealand troops as a YMCA chaplain at Zeitoun Egypt during World War I. He died there on November 5, 1917. More than 30 books bear his name, and his best-known book, My Utmost for His Highest, is a Christian classic. - Publisher.
