Prayer by O. Hallesby — Book Review

I’m not surprised this book is considered a classic, because it is one of the best books on prayer I have ever read. Every reader will find something here to deepen their understanding and practice of prayer. Some of my take-aways are:

*The need to be helpless in prayer. Only when we understand that we cannot change or fix any problem on our own do we become completely reliant upon God.

*The need to understand prayer as the most important work of the church. We would never neglect other responsibilities that we accept, but we are quick to push prayer aside because of lack of time or energy.

*The purpose of prayer is to glorify God.

There are many other helpful insights with chapters on difficulties in prayer, the misuse of prayer, forms of prayer and more.

VERDICT: 5 STARS. An easy, but meaty read. I highly recommend it!
