We are very pleased to announce the release of Private Prayer: A Christian Duty, by Oliver Heywood! Out-of-print for nearly two hundred years, this useful guide teaches, from Matthew 6:6, how to cultivate a habit of daily prayer which is both refreshing and delightful. He reviews the time, place, and content appropriate for our private prayers, and answers several objections that are commonly used to excuse ourselves from praying regularly—including lack of time, cold-heartedness, wandering thoughts, and not knowing what to say. Several scriptural instances of private prayer are explored, including the Lord’s Prayer and the mighty wrestling of Jacob in prayer (Genesis 32). Through this teaching, the believer will find resources and encouragement to help fulfill this beneficial obligation.
This is an entirely new typeset edition, with gently modernised language which makes the material approachable to a new generation of readers, while retaining the flavour of the original text. Includes a biographical preface, and a foreword by Phil Johnson.
