Although most Christians acknowledge the importance of prayer, many have unsatisfactory and ineffective prayer lives. In 31 reflections, Andrew Murray guides readers to a fully biblical understanding of prayer, and shows how to make prayer a way of life. The language has been updated for today's readers. 240 pages, from Bethany House.
Contemporary Christians know that God answers prayer and that praying is important, but most also wish their prayer life could be more effective. Murray instructs readers from Scripture and the life of Jesus that prayer is the root and strength of all work for God, that God intends to answer every prayer, and that prayer is meant to be a way of life. These thirty-one classic meditations, written in 1885, have been edited and clarified for new readers.
Using Scripture, Murray instructs readers how to make their prayers more effective by showing how prayer is the strength of all work for God.
"God intends that prayer have an answer! We have not yet fully conceived what God will do for the one who truly believes his prayer is heard." Andrew Murray passionately believed that "there is nothing we need more than to study and practice the art of praying in the correct manner." In these thirty-one devotional readings, he draws on Scripture and the life of Jesus to teach believers to pray effectively and expectantly. Experience the certainty of answers to prayer, the secret of believing prayer, the cure of unbelief, and the Holy Spirit's work in prayer. Then accept the call to devote yourself to a ministry of intercession. "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it." John 14:14 - This classic devotional study, originally titled With Christ in the School of Prayer, has been newly updated for today's reader.

Not only was Andrew Murray the author of over 240 books, he was also a man of great prayer. He began writing on the "deeper Christian life" - a favorite subject for Murray - for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayerand Abide in Christ, that searched men's hearts and brought them into a deep relationship with Christ. Writing with an intensity of purpose and zeal for the message of the Gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his retirement at age seventy-eight. .- Publisher.
