THIS BOOK HAS BROUGHT ME SO FAR FROM MISERY AND PAIN. HOW TOO BELIEVE SOLEY ON THE LORD. HOW TOO PRAY, AND BELIEVE WITHOUT A DOUBT. THE POWER OF PRAYER IS STRONG, FOR ANY SOUL WHO HAS DOWNS AND OUTS. WHO CAN'T SEEM TO GET IT TOGETHER, READ WHOLE HEARTLY, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION, FEEL HIS LOVE AND SPIRIT, BELIEVE, AND SEE THE CHANGE. READ, UNDERSTAND, LITERALY, THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER, IF YOU JUST BELIEVE.

Spurgeon goes straight to the heart of the issue before you even open the book. He explains to the reader in no uncertain terms what God requires of His children and what He is willing to bestow upon them for their obedience. Spurgeon is a timeless writer although at times (most!) he makes for some very intense reading. I have read other solid books on prayer but this is the best.

Format: Paperback
Charles Spurgeon not only preached on prayer but he lived it. Lewis Drummond, in his biography of Spurgeon, commented that Spurgeon was ever in communion it seemed with his Lord. Spurgeon believed 1 Thessalonians 5:17 that Christians are to "pray without ceasing." He believed Mark 11:22-25, that true prayer can move mountains. Charles Spurgeon believed in prayer because he believed in the sovereignty of his God.

This short collection of Spurgeon's sermons on prayer will offer you a glimpse into the heart of this man of prayer. Indeed, Spurgeon's church, Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, was a house of prayer. Spurgeon never claimed the growth for himself but to the power of God in prayer. Read this book and get on your face in prayer before a holy and righteous God.

Format: Paperback
Spurgeon's teaching in this book completely changed my perspective on prayer. It's really encouraging and powerful. Spurgeon emphasises that prayer from the heart is what matters and that big and floury prayers to make yourself look 'super-spiritual' mean nothing to God.

He also emphasises that prayer is to be with repetition and it is to be with an expectation of knowing that God will answer, whether or not we like the answer. He also talks about anxiety and prayer, and how Christians should really cast all their anxiety on Him. Prayer, as far as Spurgeon is concerned, is one of the most important aspects of a relationship with God.

The edition of the book is in modern language, in that the thee's and thou's are removed. This makes the book more approachable to anyone and easy to read.

An extremely helpful and encouraging resource to any Christian.

I chose to give it a 5 star because it was all that I needed to learn how to take my prayer life into another level. I always knew about prayer, how/when to pray, what to say in
PRAYER, etc but I never read how POWERFUL prayer is. I now know the kind of power I have as a child of God due to being a believer in Jesus.

I would STRONGLY recommend this book to anyone who wants or needs to know about prayer.

This is the best book on prayer that I have ever read. I would recommend it to the new believer and the seasoned believer as well. It takes your prayer life to a more committed level. If you haven't read this, do so. Your prayer life will never be the same.

This is the best book I have read on prayer. It also puts God in his rightful place. I have given a number of these books to friends. It has helped me in my prayer life to understand more about prayer and even God.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The only reason this is not titled "The BEST Book I Have Read on Prayer", is because in it Spurgeon mentions a little book on prayer that inspired (paraphrased)him called "The Still Hour" by Austin Phelps that I ended up purchasing and I believe that is the BEST book I have ever read on the subject... BUT VERY close race.
I have bought several more copies of this book for friends.
What can be said, other then "get it!" as well as any book written by Spurgeon. If you have read his work you know, and if you haven't read his work, you will not be disappointed. His imagery, wording and teaching surpasses that of any author/pastor that I have read (no offense to all the great ones out there). It is beautiful, most importantly scriptural and somehow perfect for people in all stages of life from the young believer to the "great" theologian.
