This book is a comprehensive study on the subject of prayer, and will show you that there are nine elements which are essential to true prayer. These elements are as follows:Adoration – We cannot meet God on a level at the start. We must approach him as one far beyond our reach or sight. Confession – Sin must be put out of the way. We cannot have any communion with God while there is any disobedience between us. Restitution – We have to make amends for the wrong, wherever possible. Thanksgiving – We must be thankful for what God has done for us already. Forgiveness – We must forgive others and pull any root of bitterness that might be growing. Unity – Loving one another brings power in prayer. Faith – There must be faith, which the preceding things produce. Petition – Thus influenced by the other things, we will be ready to offer direct petition, or requests, to God. There needs to be more petition in our prayers. Submission – After all these, there must come submission. While praying, we must be ready to accept the will of God.
Dwight Moody expounds on these nine elements in this volume, using illustrations and stories to validate what he is saying and to help make the truths in this book stick.
Dwight L. Moody, determined to make a fortune, arrived in Chicago and started selling shoes. But Christ found him and his energies were redirected into full-time ministry. And what a ministry it was. Today, Moody's name still graces a church, a mission, a college, and more. Moody loved God and men, and the power of a love like that impacts generations.
For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one that is coming. – Hebrews 13:14
Is heaven a reality to you, or does it still appear far off and uncertain?
The goal of this book is to whet your appetite for heaven. A careful look at Scripture reveals that heaven is what every born-again believer is longing for. Our time on earth is only in a temporary dwelling place, and heaven is the true home of all God’s children. A study of heaven can change how you approach each day, and even how you view others around you. As real as this life is, we are assured that heaven is just as real. While we must not neglect our present God-given duties, we must at the same time be preparing for our future home and should even be looking forward with great anticipation to our eternal home.

And all things, whatever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. – Matthew 21:22
Persistent prayer is a mighty movement of the soul toward God, and it stirs the deepest forces of the soul toward the throne of heavenly grace. It is the ability to hold on, press on, and wait. Restless desire, restful patience, and strength of grasp are all embraced in it. Prayer is not an incident or a performance but a passion of soul. It is not a want or half-needed desire but a sheer necessity.

Original Title: Daniel the Prophet. New, updated edition.
Riches and honour and life are the remuneration of humility and of the fear of the LORD. – Proverbs 22:4
God will exalt us when the time is right. We needn't try to promote ourselves; we needn't struggle for position. Let God put us where He wants us and let us be true to God. It is better for a man to be right with God, even if he holds no great earthly position. It is honest and humble men whom God will promote, if He so desires.
This study illustrates what Daniel did, and also what Daniel didn't do, which caught the attention of God and kings alike. Few are the men in history of Daniel's caliber, even though the principles he followed can be implemented by all. Are you ready to be a truly great man, one that will cause God and men to take notice?
