First Chapter Aug 14, 2008
Great book. I could rename the first chapter to "What can prayer really accomplish", because thats what it outlines--what can prayer REALLY do. Torrey breaks it down and makes it understandable, even for the new Christian. Oh if more Christians would know and apply these biblical truths that Torrey outlines and details in this magnificent book--then we would have a mighty revival sweeping through the land, breaking people down, and providing the way for them to cry out for mercy to God and receive salvation, and then live useful lives. This kind of prayer (outlined in this book) is an essential activity that you cannot do with out, if you are going to have a revival. May we have it. I am eagerly learning what this book has to say. It is fairly short and straight to the point. Just saying it like it is--that's Torrey. I do not think you will be disappointed--that is--if you seek first the kingdom of God.
Absolutely the best book every written on prayer IMHO. Jul 28, 2008
Although this book was written close to 100 years ago, it reads like it could have been written yesterday.
It is the clearest, most concise book ever written on the subject of prayer.

The printing is terrible. Many letters have been cut off on the end of sentences
"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. This is a great book I have shared with others the importance of reading it.
