Christian Focus has provided a great service to the church by republishing David McIntyre’s classic work The Hidden Life of Prayer: The Lifeblood of the Christian. Originally published in 1891, this classic has stood the test of time. Both John Piper and Wayne Grudem recommend this work:
â€œGod brings books at their appointed times. The Hidden Life of Prayer arrived late but well-timed. This little jewel-strewn tapestry has done for me at 64 what Boundsâ€™ Power Through Prayer did at 34. I could be ashamed that I need inspiration for the highest privilege. But I choose to be thankful.â€
â€”John Piper, Senior Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church
â€œâ€I have read The Hidden Life of Prayer again and again since Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia first gave it to me when I visited there as a prospective student forty years ago. Every time I read this book, the Lord uses it to deepen my prayer life and encourage my faith. I strongly recommend it!â€
â€”Wayne Grudem, Phoenix Seminary
