Item description for Let Us Pray by watchman nee...
Overview What is prayer? Are we really praying when we pray? Do we know the power of prayer? These matters and others must be understood if we would have a real prayer life and be effective in prayer. In this little volume of collected messages given over a long period of ministry by the author, and which are now translated and published in English for the first time, Watchman Nee shares with us the lessons on prayer that he has learned through the years. * He considers prayer to be a mystery, though not something that is incomprehensible. He views prayer as the greatest work to which men are called. It is a working together with God. Through it, God's purpose is accomplished and Satan's intentions are broken. And its benefit to the one who prays is something great as well.

Clear and Simple May 27, 2006
This book was great! I have been a Christian for a long time, and I have to admit, I've always been a bit confused on the subject of prayer. Nee did a great job of clearing this up for me. First, he releives my fears that it is ok if I'm confused on prayer, because we all should be; as prayer is something that is supernatural. However, that does not mean that we cannot learn about prayer! Nee, in a clear way, lays out why we pray and the purpose of it. I have gone to church my whole life, and I have never had prayer so simply explained. After I read this book, during my Bible reading, things just started to come together. When Jesus talks about prayer, it actually makes sense now on a much deeper level. This book is short and fast to get through, and I think that there are still a great many things that could be said about prayer that Nee does not touch on here; but for what he does say, it is second to none in my opinion!
This is good stuff! Nov 16, 2004
Watchman Nee spent much of his life in prison for preaching Jesus Christ in China. This was back around the early 1900's, when gospel resistance was exceedingly fierce for missionaries in Asia. His books and teachings were written mostly behind bars, under the oppression of his communist jailers. God was with him in prison, though, and rewarded his faithfulness by allowing him to lead several prison guards to Christ before he died.
All Nee's books were originally written in Chinese, and they have a certain insight into Christ that I have found unique. This man knew God, there is no doubt. He was intimate with the Holy Spirit, and God gave him revelation in prayer. To Nee, prayer is simply aligning your will with God's will.
Of course, prayer is anything but simple. Prayer is often painful and taxing. What Nee does is lay down the basic rudiments for effective prayer: 1) Praying in God's will, birthed from the desire to know the heart of God on any given subject, and 2) Perseverence in prayer, or more specifically, praying until the burden is lifted.
The second half of the book offers a teaching on Satan's tactics to disrupt the prayer life of a saint, and how to pray effectively in a group meeting. Really good stuff, I think. Books like these are good to have, keeping parts highlighted for quick access when your spirit starts to ebb. Prayer is the most important part of the Christian's walk, the part Satan attacks the most, and it is wise to read as much as we can by men who have excelled in it.

A wonderful book on prayer May 18, 2004
Next to the Bible itself, this is probably the best book I have ever read on prayer. (That is not to say that there may not be better books out there, but I have yet to come across them.) The insight in this book really sheds some wonderful light on various Biblical passages on the subject. This text will enhance your understanding of Scripture and the manner in which God works. And most importantly, it will prompt you to seek a deeper relationship with the Lord, and it offers some wonderful insight in how to do so. I bought copies of this book for my entire family at Christmastime. This book is sure to be a blessing for all who read it.
Power in a small package Sep 10, 2003
I've had this book for several years and have loaned it to several friends. One friend said at first she thought it was just another book about prayer, but was really impressed by the depth of it. This book covers why we pray, and how we should pray. It is also about entering into God's plans through prayer and how God waits for us to join with him through prayer to see his plans come about.
