The Prayer Life is a searching inquiry into prayer as the key to spiritual blessing and victory. Andrew Murray has grappled with the sin which plagues every child of God—the sin of prayerlessness. The author exposes this weakness and with incisive clarity proposes a workable solution. His rare insight and practical suggestions bring the true difficulty into perspective while providing an opportunity for each believer to make definite progress in his spiritual experience.
Too little time is given to waiting on the Lord at our conventions and assemblies, and in our private devotions. Isn’t He willing to make things right in His own divine way? Has the life of God’s people reached the utmost limit of what He is willing to do for them? Surely not. We need to wait on Him and put away our experiences, however blessed they have been; our personal concept of truth, however sound and scriptural we think it is; our plans, however needful and suitable they appear. We must give the Lord time and place to show us what He could do and what He will do. The Lord has new developments and new resources. He can do new things, unheard-of things, and hidden things. Let us enlarge our hearts and not limit Him.

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching in this with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. – Ephesians 6:18
The sin of prayerlessness as one of the deepest roots of the evil. Few can plead themselves free from this. Nothing so reveals the defective spiritual life in a pastor and the congregation as the lack of believing and unceasing prayer. Prayer is indeed the very pulse of the spiritual life. It is the great means of bringing to a pastor and the people the blessing and power of heaven. Persevering and believing prayer means a strong and abundant spiritual life.
