The Meaning of Prayer (Classic Reprint)


Title: Hardback
Sale price£24.14


What is prayer and what does it mean to pray? This is the question that Harry Emerson Fosdick addresses and answers through The Meaning of Prayer.

Although published in 1915, this compilation of readings and short prayers still remains relevant to modern spiritual warriors and retreatants as the discussions presented are considered age-old truths upon which Christianity is based.

This edition contains 10 chapters, each having daily readings that span a week. As such, this is an ideal guide for those desiring to go on a lengthy retreat, as well as those seeking something that will help them pray daily. Even though the readings are good for 10 weeks, one can stretch out a chapter to encompass a few weeks to a month in order to better "digest" and work on the points for reflection offered by the author.

Each chapter opens with 7 readings, followed by the author's comment of the week. The "comment" is a misnomer as the passage is actually a few pages long. It ends with a set of "suggestions for thought and discussion."

What's notable about this compilation is that, aside from Biblical quotes, the author supplies excerpts of poems and other types of inspirational literary works that are still relevant and related to the topic at hand.

Those who are novices in prayer, as well as those who have been doing it for years, will find this book very helpful and a blessing indeed.
