7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Jimmy R. Reagan on December 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
Here's a book on prayer from the 1800s. I read once sometime ago that Peter Masters recommended the book and said it was "once enormously popular." My copy includes a quote from Spurgeon saying the author "seems to truly and completely know the power of prayer." It seems this book fell off the map for decades.
I have at least 20 volumes on prayer in my library and nothing quite moved me like this one. As a young Christian John R. Rice's "Prayer: Asking and Receiving" helped me as did R. A. Torrey's volume on prayer. Mrs. Rosalind Goforth's volume on "How I know God Answers Prayer" is not to be missed as well.

"The Still Hour" is a book, though, I wonder how I missed all these years. Read it at your own risk. I was greatly convicted and concluded I didn't pray at all.

Listen to these chapter titles to get an idea of what you will encounter in this volume:

Absence of God in Prayer
Unhallowed Prayer
Romance in Prayer
Idolatry in Prayer

and many more. It's only 136 pages, but a phenomenal read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In Charles Spurgeon's book "The Power of Prayer in A Believer's Life" (another one of the best books on prayers I have read), he mentions the excellence of this book, "The Still Hour". I figured that if it inspired Spurgeon it must be good and promptly ordered it. I was not disappointed. I believe this is the BEST book that I have ever read on prayer. I always appreciate a few excerpts in reviews, but I am not sure how to pull just small parts out of this book. Here are just a few short quotes:
-"We know not what we should pray for as we ought. We make prayer itself one of the standard subjects of prayer; yet, on what theme do our devotions more frequently degenerate into routine than this? Have we a sense of indigence when we ask for the indwelling of God in our souls? Have we such a sense of need of it, as we have of the need of air when we are gasping with faintness?"
-"A holy prayer is the Spirit of God speaking through the infirmities of a human soul; We scarcely utter hyperbole in saying that prayer is the Divine mind communing with itself, through finite wants, through the woes of helplessness, through the clinging instincts of weakness. On this side of the judgement, no other conception of the presence of God is so profound, as that which is realized in our souls every time we offer a genuine prayer. God is then not only with us, but within us."

-"We are never more like Christ than in prayers of intercession. In the most lofty devotion we become unconscious of self"
Two more minor notes that I should make.
