Reviews - What do customers think about How To Pray (Moody Classics)?
"A classic standard, but at least two others are a bit more complete." Sep 3, 2006
Flat out, there aren't many good, solid books on prayer. This is one of them. I gave it four stars for two reasons. First, what it covers, it covers extremely well. Torrey is an acknowledged master from generations gone by. Second, for some reason, he leaves out a few aspects of prayer that should have been included (like praying for things that seem already promised to us--WHY that's important).
I would recommend this book along with only 2 others. "With Christ in the School of Prayer" (Murray) is another standard work that will deliver the goods. And if you like the way Torrey organizes his lessons, you will probably like an author of this generation (who must have read Torrey!) who wrote "God, Help Me Pray!". This book (though almost impossible to find) reads a bit more contemporary, and could be the modern standard on prayer.
I would not be without Torrey, but the newer books cover everything he does and then some. The latter book is also quite practical, if you like that sort of thing.

I found this book to really strengthen my relationship with the LORD.
Pray for Eternal Salvation and in avoiding Temptation. Jun 22, 2006
Anyone can know how to pray, but if you don't know then get this literature and be familiar in how to pray the right way. What do i mean by saying the right way? People have to pray with feeling and with heart. One cannot be cold in prayer because Jesus Our God knows everything about us, and He himself will not grant us our visions in case our thoughts are about greed, and destruction. Everything that is told to Him in prayer must be with Love. But praying, the ultimate thing in prayer is about "YOU" and "OTHERS" getting eternal salvation, and praying to avoid the "TEMPTATIONS" of this World. Never stop praying. People who are not clean will not enter the Kingdom of God (Christ), so pray to Christ that your sins be forgiven so you can enter the Kingdom. Get this book, and buy some copies for your friends, because they too need to be saved. We are carnal beings and in the end many are going to hell,but avoid hell and simply pray alot To Jesus Christ.
A good sequel to The Power of Prayer May 2, 2003
This is much more condenced than the other book on prayer, however if you want to you can take your Bibles and follow along what this godly man taught about the area of prayer.
A great book! Apr 3, 2003
This book was written in 1900 by R.A. Torrey (1856-1928), evangelist, pastor, educator and author. In it, Dr. Torrey looks at prayer, with chapters on: 1) the importance of prayer, 2) praying unto God (as opposed to praying for the edification of the listeners), 3) obeying and praying, 4) praying in the name of Christ and according to the will of God, 5) praying in the Spirit, 6) always praying and not fainting, 7) abiding in Christ, 8) praying with thanksgiving, 9) hindrances to prayer, 10) when to pray, and 11) the need of prayer before and during revivals.
Though this book was written more than a century ago, it is as exciting and relevant today as if it was brand new. The author makes copious use of Biblical passages, showing examples and admonitions on prayer. And, though many old books are dry reads compared to modern books, this one is so wonderfully written that its age is completely irrelevant. I think that this is a great book, one that would make a worthwhile addition to the library of every Christian.
