This book, With Christ in the School of Prayer, by the Reformed Dutch pastor Andrew Murray, is a collection of Biblical instructions on intercessory prayer. Although the book was copyrighted in 1981, the foreword (by Dick Eastman) says it was "first written more than a century ago." Since Murray wrote the book so long ago it is understandable that he would use the King James Version of the Bible for his scriptural quotes. I found the archaic language of the KJV made it difficult for me to follow much of the discussion. Words such as; importunity (chapter 8), howbeit (chapter 13), availeth (chapter 23) are no longer a part of our conventional vocabulary. I found it was equally distracting when the same language was carried in the text by Murray, most frequently in the prayers at the close of each chapter, which seemed like an effort to make them sound more pious. In some places I felt that the texts Murray selected were used out of their proper context, and his "proof texting" came close to typology. Throughout the book Murray argues our need to learn to pray, and our teacher is Jesus, and we must continually ask for Jesus' help in our education, in the school of prayer. Murray's writing is very inspiring, and I found his advice very practical. I liked Murray's point that believers are called to a lifetime of intercessionary prayer. We are to draw down God's grace to others. We, as God's servants on earth, need to go to God in prayer and ask to other benefit from his grace. "In conformity to Jesus, the Great High Priest, they are to be the ministers and stewards of the grace of God" (page 225). If our lives are lived in faithful obedience to God's will, we can obtain his promises and use them successfully in our prayers for others. This book is a classic, and I highly recommend it.
