Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Power of Prayer is the classic handbook on tapping the unlimited power of God. It discusses the freedom, peace, and security available through communication with God and answers common questions about prayer: - How to pray? - Who can pray? - Why pray? - What interferes with prayer? - How to overcome hindrances to prayer? - What can prayer do for a person or a nation? No other book so clearly outlines the positives of prayer, the prerequisites of prayer, the purpose of prayer, or the power of prayer.

In Amazon's site, they supposedly allow you to buy the Kindle version of RA Torrey's Classic book "The Power of Prayer and the Prayer of Power". It comes up as "The Power of Prayer". However, the item you purchase by following the link is not the book "The Power of Prayer and the Prayer of Power". It is only a sermon entitled "The Power of Prayer". Albeit a good sermon, this is not what you are looking for if you are looking for a Kindle edition of "The Power of Prayer and the Prayer of Power". Amazon should take note, and fix this. They do NOT currently sell a Kindle version of "The Power of Prayer and the Prayer of Power".

This IS the book that taught me how I MUST pray in order to have my prayers answered.
Never have I read a book that more clearly explains how one must pray in order to have one's prayes answered. Never, other than the Bible, have I read a book and in the reading felt the spirit of the author so keenly. Mr. Torrey was truly a man of God and he was a man whos prayers were answered. If one finds a man who has all his prayers answered, then, one should acquire that mans works, study them throughly and follow his teachings.
Mr. Torrey goes into great detail to explain what prayer is, how to pray so that God hears our prayers, the results of effective prayer and the power of that prayer. Just one of the most powerful books I have ever read!

R.A. Torrey is a Spirit-filled man of God. His works and sermons still speaks volumes to many hungry Christians. This book on prayer happens to be more indepth than another book he has written, which is "How to Pray" (also a good book). Just about any work from Torrey would be highly recommended. Perhaps you should also look into "The Fundamentals" this is a classic volume in responce to Higher Criticism.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book that describes not only the great things that can be accomplished through prayer, but also HOW to pray so that our prayers are answered. In each chapter, Mr Torrey examines one aspect of prayer from a scriptural standpoint and gives illustrative anecdotes from his own experience in ministry. A very informative, edifying and encouraging book!

Many books on prayer tell people what prayer is. The "Power of Prayer" describes why people are to pray and how to pray. It has been a great joy to use this book in Home Bible Studies. If you want to change your life and grow in this disciplen you will need this book.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Seeking Disciple VINE VOICE on April 18, 2005
Format: Paperback
Like most books I have read on prayer, none can truly teach you to pray. Prayer is not a learned technique that we copy from others but it is something the Spirit of God must do in our hearts and lives (Luke 11:1-13; Romans 8:26-27; Eph. 6:18). Many have tried to read this classic work on prayer and have felt that Torrey doesn't teach us to pray. It simply is not written for that purpose.

This book is not so much an exegesis on passages of Scripture on prayer but is Torrey's insights and personal illustrations of answers to prayer, hinderances to prayer, and the power of prayer. Torrey, like other classic writers on prayer, assumes that Christians pray (1 Samuel 12:23). Therefore he doesn't spend much time trying to coerce the reader to pray but fills the reader with faith-filled stories of pray-ers. He wants us to see that prayer is powerful because of who God is (Hebrews 11:6; James 5:16-17).

Read this book but more than that: pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17).
