A Classic on Prayer

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:

“God 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 Bounds’ Power Through Prayer did at 34. I could be ashamed that I need inspiration for the highest privilege. But I choose to be thankful.”
—John Piper, Senior Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church

“”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!”
—Wayne Grudem, Phoenix Seminary
