About-

The current resurgent interest in prayer emanates from many walks of life. Threats of war, economic crises, and conflicting ideologies are affecting the thinking of thoughtful men and women. Increasingly, they find themselves looking for inspiration and directives.

Teach Us to Pray deals specifically with the nature and power of Christian prayer, and it invites the reader to explore and enter into the great elements of Christian praying.

In his Foreword, Nels F. S. Ferre says: "I have seldom been so thoroughly convinced of the need of any single book as I am of this one. If it is read and used in the spirit in which it has been written, it will come as a fresh breeze of power to this desperately needy and despairing world . . . It rises out of the genuine prayer life of its author. The reader will feel himself caught by its power and purpose the more he is willing to let himself go with it."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"[Teach Us to Pray] . . . combines in a unique way profound spiritual understanding and sensitivity, the basic theology undergirding prayer, and concrete practical instructions."
--Frederick M. Leek, Minister, Old South Church, Boston

"A spiritual treasure, at once simple and profound, both practically helpful and theologically sound . . . This is the most usable book for teaching people to pray that has appeared in many years."
--Religious Book Club Bulletin

"I don't know of any one volume which I have read in years which has been more helpful actually in inducing the spirit of prayer, defining the moods of prayer, outlining the nature of prayer, and in leading one step-by-step in prayer to the consciousness of the reality of God."
--Henry H. Shires, Dean of the Church Divinity School of the Pacific
