In 1912, only few years before he passed away, Andrew Murray gathered with other pastors at a conference about the low state of spiritual affairs in the South African churches. The Prayer Life was borne out of the soul searching and repentance that transpired at that conference. Here, Murray addresses the problem of prayerlessness, a condition that knows no generational boundaries. Murray cuts to the heart of the problem, offering suggestions that, if followed, will have a serious impact on the life of the believer. Murray explains that since prayer is an outgrowth of abiding in Christ, prayerlessness is fundamentally a lack of abiding rather than simply a lack of prayer. The Prayer Life is a challenging call to a deeper Christian experience, out of which will naturally flow a life of prayer. Much more than a book on how to pray, this is a book on how to have a deeper, more effective spiritual walk with God.
