    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    To Pray in His Name is to Pray as He Prayed

    Particularly when I read classic works, that are typically so dense, so rich, I look for some excerpt in the book that summarizes the entire work. This book, Andrew Murray's, [[ASIN:0764227637 The Ministry of Intercessory Prayer]] is perhaps best summarized by the following (pp. 106-107, emphasis added):

    "Christ's life and work, His suffering and death, were founded on prayer--total dependence upon God the Father, trust in God, receiving from God, and surrendering to God. YOUR REDEMPTION IS BROUGHT INTO BEING BY PRAYER AND INTERCESSION. The life He lived for you and the life He lives in you is a life that delights to wait on God and receive from Him. To pray in His name is to pray as He prayed. Christ is our example because He is our Head, our Savior, and our Life. In virtue of His deity and of His Spirit, He can live in us. We can pray in His name because we abide in Him and He abides in us."

    From the first chapter on "The Lack of Prayer," to the fifteenth chapter on "The Coming Revival," the author guides the reader into a full scope of what the scriptures have to say about intercessory prayer and the call upon every believer to intercede in prayer, including importune prayer, for the saints and others, in order to bring the blessings of God to the people.

    The last fifty-five pages of the book are devoted to "Pray Without Ceasing: A Thirty-One-Day Course," and it is laid out so nicely, with each day covering, "What to Pray," "How to Pray," and "Your Own Prayer Requests." Just two examples are:

    What to Pray--That God's People May Realize Their Calling
    How to Pray--As One Who Has Accepted for Himself What He Asks for Others

    What to Pray--For the Spirit of Intercession
    How to Pray--Abiding in Christ

    The author elaborates further on each section. This is a course I plan to start immediately. As the Holy Spirit has called me into a season of prayer and fasting (in part about my own ministry and calling to intercessory prayer) the timing is right.

    Reading this book has been well worth my time, and I do see it as a resource to be consulted over and over. Andrew Murray's [[ASIN:0883681013 Waiting on God]] is a helpful and enlightening complement to this book.

    Another excellent book on intercessory prayer is Juanita Bynum's, [[ASIN:1591858038 The Threshing Floor: How to Know Without a Doubt that God Hears Your Every Prayer]].

    This is a must own for those involved in intercessary prayer. I have read at least 5 books on this subject and still refer back to this one from time to time. It never expires with time or changes. Prayer groups would be strongly advised to make this book a must read.
