by R. A. Torrey

“Ye shall ask what ye will, and it will be done unto you”:

The world-renowned classic which has already shown millions that God’s answers come to those who know how to ask.


Most of us know we OUGHT to pray, but many seem uncertain as

to HOW, WHEN, and WHERE to pray. This book is the classic

Christian answer to these vital questions.

Believing that many prayers are not answered because they

are not intelligently offered, Dr. Torrey examines the

MOODS, the METHODS and the MEANINGS of prayer. He considers

all the problems and questioning of the sincere seeker, and

in answer to them offers an outline for effective praying

that is as positive as it is beautiful and inspirational.

The gentle art of prayer, within these pages, is put within

the reach of the least of us. To read it is a mountain-top

experience of communion with a loving, ANSWERING God.


...and Dr. Torrey goes on to give reasons why men should

pray—and what prayer can do:

“Prayer is God’s appointed way for obtaining things, and the

great secret of all lack in our experience, in our life and

in our work is neglect of prayer.”

“All the mighty men of God outside the Bible have been men

of prayer. They have differed from one another in many

things, but in this they have been alike.”

“Prayer, in every care and anxiety and need of life, with

thanksgiving, is the means God has appointed for out

obtaining freedom from all anxiety, and the peace of God

which passeth all understanding.”

Men should pray—as Christ Himself prayed—and this little masterpiece of inspiration and faith tells you why, how; it is a faithful guide to the richest fulfillment of the Christian life.
