Andrew Murray longed for every Christian to understand the reality and glory of the privilege given to God's children - the privilege of praying and receiving answers. In this unique and practical book, he motivates and instructs believers in the discipline of intercession. He then invites those who want to participate more effectively in the "great work of intercession" to devote ten minutes a day to this discipline for a month. His month-long course in intercession at the end of the book includes "What to Pray," "How to Pray," Scripture readings, and a place to write prayer requests each day. Enroll in Murray's school of intercessory prayer and learn firsthand that "The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working" (James 5:16).
Throughout his ministry, Andrew Murray passionately prayed and taught people about prayer. In this volume he combines his devotional writing with his only study guide on prayer: "Pray Without Ceasing." His simple but profound goal is teaching Christians how to change the world through the powerful ministry of intercession.
