Lord, Teach Us To Pray

by Andrew Murray

This book is so amazing that I fear I will do it a disservice by attempting to review it. How can I put the depth of its content into a summary?

I grew up reading the Bible, attending church, praying, etc. I never felt I really understood prayer as I should like but it seemed no resource existed that could impart the depth of understanding I wished to attain on the subject. That is, until I stumbled upon Andrew Murray's book Lord, Teach Us to Pray. This book spoke to the depth of my soul. It has opened my eyes to the amazement of God's real intent for prayer in the life of a believer. As I read this book, I underlined important insights. Alas, some chapters were nearly completely underlined! This book truly is that helpful in mining the gems of prayer as God intended it. That way is far more than I ever dreamed, and it is amazing to me.

I have been brought to tears numerous times as I was awed by God's design and intent of prayer. God used the content of these pages to bring prayer from a duty to a desire. It as if my eyes have been opened for the very first time. I have longed this kind of understanding for decades. God has been so good as to in bringing this old text into my life at just the right time for it to speak to my heart in a profound and meaningful way.
