Very simply this is a classic; absolutely loved the simplicity of it and the encouragement I found in my soul. I love books, but generally stay away from ones on prayer because they seem to try and say more than what it really is; placing too much "power" in the hands of those who pray. However, Bunyan runs a wonderful race in this book, believes in the sovereignty and Almighty power of God through Christ acted out by the Holy Spirit, and really encourages the reader. The simplicity hits it's cl ...more
Took me too long to read, for reasons I will not give forth, but the one piece of the book that will stay with me, surely, was at the very end.

Bunyan makes the point, and pleads with us, to come to God in prayer daily and continuously, because we must, he says, rely only upon the grace (or loving-kindness) of God. Without the benevolence of God we will be unable (not able) to live according to God's will, we will not be able to bring forth the fruit of the Spirit (i.e. love, patience, truth, joy
Two books in one. Overall, interesting at times. Written from jail in the 1600s before "Pilgrims Progress" was penned.

I gave it 3 stars instead of 5 because it was slow slogging to get through this book, partly style and partly content. Not an easy read, more theological than practical.

First book: "Praying in the Spirit"
"Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the heart or soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Holy Spirit, for such things as God pr
This is my favorite Christian book of all time. I read it 10 years ago and am reading the second part of the book again now which is ultimately a commentary on Hebrews 4 - coming boldly to the throne of grace to find help and mercy in time of need. Bunyan does a great job showing the believer what is at the throne of grace as revealed in scripture (primarily Revelation & Hebrews), and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of all these things. It is Jesus we come through for access to the Fathe ...more

John Owen is a Puritan and most known for his books "The Pilgrim's Progress" and "the Holy War." This volume is a reprint of two works on prayer, "Praying in the Spirit," and "The Throne of Grace," written around 1662 AD. Owen is not for those looking for cotton candy spiritual fluff. This is a book to digest a mouthful at a time. Here's a nugget to whet your appetite: "Prayer is only true when it is within the compass of God's Word; it is blasphemy, or at best vain babbling, when the petition i ...more
I read Part 1; Praying in the Spirit which was very helpful, convicting and encouraging.
Read the first book in this book of two on Prayer, and I'm going to put it back on the shelf for the moment with some of my other Puritan Paperbacks.

You should by Puritan Paperbacks they are cheap and glorious:

It was a descent read, but the best part of the book, I think was the last 50 pages.
