In this book of personal devotions, noted theologian Dr. John Baillie offers personal prayers for people who are seeking a better understanding of God and themselves. Intermingling adoring and meditative thoughts about God with a concern for the social and individual good, these daily invocations help and inspire us to search within our inner selves and find the deep religious beliefs that lie within.
“When this book was first published almost one hundred years ago it was quickly recognised as a classic of devotional writing, and I’m delighted that Susanna Wright is now making it available and accessible to a new generation of readers seeking resources to help them grow in prayer.”
"The adjective "venerable" ought be reserved for those classics that have stood the test of generations. John Baillie's "A Diary of Private Prayer" has surely earned this title. This classic of Christian spirituality has been in constant use since its publication in 1949. Thousands of men and women have found comfort, wisdom and challenge in Baillie's prayers, rendered utterly without pretense. My own dog-eared copy of the "Diary" has been a companion since college days. But even the most ardent fan of this classic has longed for an edition that speaks with a fresh, contemporary voice, precisely the voice Baillie employed in his own time. We can be grateful to Susanna Wright for the respect with which she has handled Baillie's prayers, and the reverence with which she ushers us into the presence of God. If it is ever proper to speak of a new classic - and one surely should do so only with great care - it is possible to speak of Wright's new edition of John Baillie's "Diary."'
"Prayer is the language of faith. Like any other language, the best way to learn it is to listen to native speakers and practice. In this book, the beginner will find ideas, words and patterns that will help to guide and grow their own prayer life; and those who have been praying for longer will find fresh inspiration. But most importantly, all who use this book will draw closer to the God who came to speak to us in our language so that we may learn his."
"The Diary of Private Prayer by John Baillie sold over a million copies and blessed many Christians over the last century. This contemporary version will open it up to a new generation and will be a great aid to prayer for those starting out on their prayer lives as well as to long standing Christians."
“Susanna Wright has done contemporary Christians a great service by making John’s Baillie’s classic available and accessible to a new generation. The prayers in this book will deepen, enrich and transform anyone who prays them seriously.”
"Since its initial publication in 1936, The Diary of Private Prayer has become established as a modern spiritual classic. Now translated into several languages, it has become the best-selling work of any Scottish theologian. The Diary's breadth of subject matter, felicity of language, and simple piety have impressed its many readers at different times and in diverse circumstances. This updated edition admirably preserves all these qualities while ensuring that John Baillie's Diary will continue to be accessible to another generation."
"A fresh and helpful answer to the perennial cry of humanity, 'Teach us to pray."

BeanieEdmonton, AB, CanadaAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A great devotional resource!March 28, 2011BeanieEdmonton, AB, CanadaAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. John Bailey was a theologian and professor. His private morning and evening devotions use King James language, but are very rich and my wife and I use them daily, usually along with other devotional materials. We first came across them on-line, revised by his son and further revised by someone else, but these in book form we treasure!

Q: Is there a sample page of the ebook that we may view? I want to see if it is the original version with all the "Thee's and thou's", etc.
