“The intelligent child of God must be driven to say, ‘I must pray, pray, pray. I must put all my energy and all my heart into prayer. Whatever else I do, I must pray.'”
Stunning and forthright, R.A. Torrey’s “little book on prayer” is a reflection of the writer who once had it said about him, “One wonders if there has ever lived a man who did so many things well for Christ.”
Torrey deals with the key elements of life-changing prayer, such as praying in the Spirit, abiding in Christ, obstacles to prayer, the best times to pray, seeking revival through prayer, and more. Torrey outlines a practical strategy for living life in conversation with God.
Of all the factors influencing our spiritual growth and development, pivotal books play a key role. Learning from those who have walked the path and fought the fight brings wisdom and strengthens resolve. And hearing the familiar chords of kingdom living sung by voices from other times can penetrate cultural barriers that limit our allegiance to the King. To this end, Moody Publishers is honored to introduce the first six volumes in what is to be an ongoing series of spiritual classics. Selected for their enduring influence and timeless perspective, these new editions promise to shape the lives of spiritual pilgrims for generations to come.
R. A. Torrey was an American evangelist, a Bible scholar, and successor to D. L. Moody. A graduate of Yale, he was ordained to the ministry in 1878.
In the opening chapter, Torrey describes the purpose of his book. “We begin herewith a series of studies of the person and work of the Holy Spirit. We shall begin this series by considering what the Bible has to say about the Holy Spirit as a person. It is impossible to rightly understand the work of the Holy Spirit, or to get into right relation with the Holy Spirit Himself and thus know His blessed work in our own souls, without first coming to know the Holy Spirit as a person. One of the most fruitful sources of error and misconception, of unwholesome enthusiasm and false fire and fanaticism, in the treatment of this whole subject, is from trying to know the work of the Holy Spirit before we first come to know the Holy Spirit Himself.”
Torrey presents us with an easy-to-follow, practical and inspiring guide to Bible study which beginners and scholars alike will find refreshing and useful. In eight concise, powerful chapters, Torrey invites us far beyond mere intellectual exercise toward a deeper love and spiritual hunger for the living Word of God.
