Summary

The Daily Benefits Derived from It. This treatise on prayer comes from Book III, Chapter 20 of Calvin's magnum opus, Institutes of the Christian Religion. In it, Calvin answers questions concerning to whom Christians should address their prayers, how they should formulate prayers, and what practices may benefit or injure the development of a prayerful life. As he seeks answers to these questions, Calvin meditates on the Lord's Prayer as a model for meaningful, righteous praying. His inquiry and meditation possess the same degree of scriptural and theological scholarship that characterize the wider body of his work. Although one can read these words on prayer simply because of their immense influence upon history, they can still challenge and instruct us today.
