What is prayer? Are we really praying when we pray? Do we know the power of prayer? These matters and others must be understood if we would have a real prayer life and be effective in prayer. In this little volume of collected messages given over a long period of ministry by the author, and which are now translated and published in English for the first time, Watchman Nee shares with us the lessons on prayer that he has learned through the years. He considers prayer to be a mystery, though not something that is incomprehensible. He views prayer as the greatest work to which men are called. It is a working together with God. Through it, God's purpose is accomplished and Satan's intentions are broken. And its benefit to the one who prays is something great as well. Let us therefore follow the admonition of our blessed Lord, who said: "Rise and pray" (Luke 22.46).

I have been facing some really big decisions and not able to find real direction from the Lord, so I have sought out a way to know the Lord's voice better. In discovering this book, Watchman Nee has helped me understand that it is learning to submit myself to listening to the Lord's will that I will find answers. A true communion with The Lord is essential to praying in the way that God will answer, as Brother Nee points out.
This has helped shape my prayer life in ways I had never known before!
this is an excellent book to encourage Christians to stand in prayer! if you want to learn how to be a prayer Warrior and would like to go deeper in your prayer life this is a good book to incorporate in your library.
Great book for spiritual growth in praying. Though some of his points I am not sure are as strongly stressed in Scripture as he perceives none the less your prayer life will become more in every aspect. More intimate as we understand prayer better. More spiritual and less carnal. More often as understand it's importance. Most of all more in line with the will of God.
"Pray without ceasing"
Praise the Lord Jesus for Watchman Nee! Insightful teaching. All the Lord's people lift up holy hands. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. God bless all the intercessors abundantly.
