THIS BOOK CALLS CHRISTIANS TO COMMIT THEMSELVES TO CHRIST BY PRAYER...........THE MOST EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR CREATOR AND LORD, JESUS CHRIST. IT CALLS FOR COMMITMENT WHICH MOST CHRISTIANS ARE NOT WILLING TO DO , UNLESS THEY NEED SOMETHING FROM GOD. THE BOOK IS LOADED WITH SCRIPTURE FOR MEDITATION.., IT NEEDS TO BE SPIRITUALLY DIGESTED TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPTS HE PRESENTS. I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS FOR NEW CHRISTIANS, ITS HEAVY DUTY , HE CALLS YOU ON THE CARPET TO EITHER COMMIT TO CHRIST OR YOU DON'T, YOU CAN'T PRAY HALF WAY, YOU ARE EITHER COMMITTED TO PRAY OR YOUR NOT. I PERSONALLY CAN SAY I HAD TO WAIT A YEAR BEFORE PICKING THE BOOK UP TO READ IT. THIS IS MY 2ND BOOK AND I'M GOING THROUGH THIS AGAIN. AT TIMES THE READING IS INTENSE , BUT I GOT THROUGH IT. LIKE I SAID I'M GOING THROUGH THIS AGAIN, THEIR IS MORE I CAN GAIN FROM READING THIS AGAIN AND THE SCRIPTURES HE USES IN THE BOOK AS WELL. I HAVE OTHER BOOKS BY ANDREW MURRAY THAT ARE JUST THIS ONE, HE ENCOURAGES YOU TO COMMIT YOURSELF SO GOD BLESS IN WAYS YOU'VE NEVER DREAMED OF..........IF YOU WILL JUST SPEND TIME WITH HIM. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY CHRISTIAN WHO WANTS TO GROW IN THE LORD........IF IT GETS TOO INTENSE ,,,,,TAKE A BREAK........YOU CAN ALWAYS COME BACK TO IT........LIKE I DID........I'D LIKE TO SAY ITS FOR ALL CHRISTIANS.........UNFORTUNATELY ........SOME WILL NOT MAKE THE COMMITMENT......ITS THEIR CHOICE ....AND THEIR LIFE.....THEY CHOOSE TO LIVE. GOD BLESS
This collection of his writings about prayer exceed most of the other books I've read about prayer. I felt stuck in my prayer life and had been praying and crying out to God for a deeper walk in this area of my life. After reading this book I feel more secure about God hearing my prayer and I know He will and does answer them. Also, I know now that a great deal depends on the Holy Spirit and not myself. I can relax and trust God to lead me to pray for others. Only He can and will direct our prayer in truth and grace. God is a good God and He wants us to depend on Him for prayer and guidance and this book will lead you closer to Him and to know Him better and yourself.
This book is changing my life and the way I view my relationship with Our Father and Lord...and the way He views me. The Lord is using this book in even answering questions that are just forming in my mind. Quite wonderful! This book is a combination of several Andrew Murray books and I highly recommend it to all my brothers and sisters. May God bring His wisdom to us all. Blessings in Christ!~
This is an excellent book, as are the other books by Andrew Murray that I have read. It is a very convicting, as well as an eye opening, book that shows how short I fall in my prayer life. As well as my shortcomings in realizing the many promises in the Scriptures connected with prayer & faith. Every born again Christian should read this book!! God bless & I hope this was helpful.
