I have read many books on prayer but this one stands out head and shoulders above all others. Though it was written at such a different time in history, it is just as relevant today. What R.A. Torrey does in this book is much more than teach dry methods. Rather, he imparts to the reader the true spirit of prayer and how vital it is in practicality to our lives on a daily basis. A MUST for any believer serious about having a true, intimate relationship with their "Abba Father."

Torrey's title is, in my mind, somewhat misleading, but don't let this stop you from reading this invaluable book. There is no handbook on how to pray, really, nor can there be as true prayer is personal and relational. Still, How to Pray offers words on what prayer is, what it can do, and why we sometimes fail, both personally and corporately. "You have not because you ask not" says Torrey repeatedly. He expounds on this simple truth inspirationally and practically. This book should be read by anyone serious about prayer.

Flat out, there aren't many good, solid books on prayer. This is one of them. I gave it four stars for two reasons. First, what it covers, it covers extremely well. Torrey is an acknowledged master from generations gone by. Second, for some reason, he leaves out a few aspects of prayer that should have been included (like praying for things that seem already promised to us--WHY that's important).

I would recommend this book along with only 2 others. "With Christ in the School of Prayer" (Murray) is another standard work that will deliver the goods. And if you like the way Torrey organizes his lessons, you will probably like an author of this generation (who must have read Torrey!) who wrote "God, Help Me Pray!". This book (though almost impossible to find) reads a bit more contemporary, and could be the modern standard on prayer.

I would not be without Torrey, but the newer books cover everything he does and then some. The latter book is also quite practical, if you like that sort of thing.

This book is going on my top ten list of recommended reading for young believers. Torrey explains in easy to understand language the principles of effective prayer laid out in the scriptures. A must-read for anyone desiring to improve upon their prayer life!

This is an awesome book! I've given copies to several friends. While reading at a coffee shop one day, I thought "I can't wait to get home and pray like this!" This book focuses on God and aligning your heart with His will, not simply getting what you want. A short and easy read, but it efficiently makes an impact.

"How to Pray" by RA Torrey was an excellent resource that has helped clarify my prayer life. I'm still unsure that I have a complete understanding of prayer but feel I'm, "getting there." I also gave a copy to a friend from church whom I believe will benefit from it. The book really made me think - I had to reevaluate my prayer life.

Sincerely,
Charles (Chuck) Stanley

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 24, 2014
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was written in 1900 by R.A. Torrey (1856-1928), evangelist, pastor, educator and author. In it, Dr. Torrey looks at prayer, with chapters on: 1) the importance of prayer, 2) praying unto God (as opposed to praying for the edification of the listeners), 3) obeying and praying, 4) praying in the name of Christ and according to the will of God, 5) praying in the Spirit, 6) always praying and not fainting, 7) abiding in Christ, 8) praying with thanksgiving, 9) hindrances to prayer, 10) when to pray, and 11) the need of prayer before and during revivals.

Though this book was written more than a century ago, it is as exciting and relevant today as if it was brand new. The author makes copious use of Biblical passages, showing examples and admonitions on prayer. And, though many old books are dry reads compared to modern books, this one is so wonderfully written that its age is completely irrelevant. I think that this is a great book, one that would make a worthwhile addition to the library of every Christian.
