At the request of D. L. Moody, Torrey wrote a book late in the nineteenth century entitled How to Pray; and God used that book to stir many thousands to develop a regular prayer life. A great work began as a result of that book, spanning across Australia, and New Zealand in 1902, and extending to England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, where it gave birth to much of the great Welsh Revival of 1904. Subsequently, it went on to India and many other lands, resulting in the conversion of hundreds of thousands of souls. Torrey On Prayer, is much fuller and more complete than How to Pray. It contains Torrey’s updated version of his original book, and covers the whole subject of prayer, not only in its relation to revivals, but also in relation to the various aspects of Christian life and activity.
“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.
