Publisher's Summary

We are delighted to offer this beautifully narrated audio version of A Diary of Private Prayer. Editor Susanna Wright offers this updated edition of a Christian devotional classic - invoking the daily prayers and timeless imagery of the original text through modern, accessible language.

In this wonderful collection, famed theologian Dr. John Baillie shares personal prayers for people who are seeking a better understanding of God and themselves. Organized by morning and evening - with special prayers for Sundays - A Diary of Private Prayer is written with eloquence, piety, and directness. Blending praise and meditative thoughts about God with a concern for the social and individual good, these daily invocations help and inspire us to search our inner selves and find the deep religious beliefs that lie within.

First published in 1936, A Diary of Private Prayer remains a seminal Christian devotional with more than a million copies in print. This modern edition admirably preserves all the qualities of the original, ensuring that the wisdom of God and the wonder of Baillie’s prayers remain accessible for many generations to come.

Each prayer is a separate titled chapter enabling the listener to access whichever is needed on the day.

Narrator

While I realize the narrator represents the Author of the original book,
in my mind, and as a woman, I was expecting a female narrator. Since the book has been rewritten for an audience of this generation I would have enjoyed a female narrator more.

Thoughtful Prayers

I enjoyed listening to the Dairy of Private Prayer. The prayers provided a deeper thoughtfulness for me. They served as a reminder to what God speaks in his word.
