We need to pray! It is our lifeblood as Christians. Every one of us needs to improve our prayer life. This book was written over 130 years ago and is just as applicable now as I am sure it was then. Moody breaks down the different elements of prayer, starting with adoration of God. This includes who we are, and more importantly, who God is. It is the starting point for effective prayer. He continues with a variety of topics, some that we often think of such as thanksgiving and confession, and a few that we may be much less familiar with in relation to prayer, such as restitution and unity.
The challenge of prayer may be daunting but in this simple, 85 page book, Moody makes the value clear and the methodology easy to understand. The task is by no means easy but it is essential. Whether you are just starting out or have been working on prayer for years, read this book!
