A Few Books on Prayer …

Below you will find a listing of just a few books on prayer.  There are a multitude of books written about praying.  Some of them are wonderful.  Some are more fluff than substance.  I’ve listed a few that I have found to be reliable, biblical, and encouraging.  Obviously, the list could go on and on, and I’m sure you’ll say “Hey! You forgot so and so,” but I did promise only a few books.

The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers edited by Arthur Bennett.  This is an interesting book to start of f the list.  I have used it as part of my personal quiet time to help me engage in prayer.  These prayers are very good-focused.  We could learn a lot from these godly men of old.

Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey.  This book wrestles with some of the questions we have about prayer.  It is an honest look at prayer and well worth the read.

The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom.  This is a classic book.  It is filled with personal examples as well as deep insight.  This is one of those books that will challenge your thinking about prayer and challenge you to pray.

Prayer: The Great Adventure by David Jeremiah.  I read this book some years ago and it was a true blessing.  If you are familiar with David Jeremiah’s preaching style, then you will feel right at home with this book.  It is practical and inspiring.

Too Busy NOT to Pray by Bill Hybels.  This books is based on the ACTS form of praying – Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication.  This book falls in the practical category, so most people will find it helpful.

Prayers That Avail Much by our very own Germaine Copeland.  Germaine has written quite a few books on prayer, but this one volume contains three complete works – more bang for the buck.  The approach is simple.  Use Scripture to shape your prayers.  Not only will this book make your prayer life come alive, it will also bring you alive to God’s Word.
