    I haven't even finished it yet, but I can tell you already it's going to be a 5 star book. Ok finished... What an amazing book!! It's based on John 15 in the Bible regarding the parable of the vine and the branches. It's about Jesus' promise that if you love God and seek His will, and follow Jesus example and commands, then what you ask in Jesus' name will be granted because it will glorify God. "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. T I haven't even finished it yet, but I can tell you already it's going to be a 5 star book.

"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples." John 15:7-8 NIV The entire book highlights the limitless power at the hands of Jesus' diciples, in so far as, it is in God's will. ANYTHING God wants accomplished WILL be accomplished in Jesus' name for the Glory of God. A few quotes from the book: "Why, the wonder is not that we pray so little, but that we can ever get up from our knees if we realize our own need; the needs of our home and our loved ones; the needs of our pastor and the church; the needs of our city--of our country--of the heathen..." "The Lord Jesus, now in the heavenlies, beckons to us to fall upon our knees and claim the riches of His grace." "Isn't it just splendid to know that by our prayers we can bring down showers of blessing upon India, or Africa, or China, just as readily as we can get the few drops needed for our own little plot?" "Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God for things agreeable to His will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins and thankful acknowledgement of His mercies." This is such a wonderful book!! Definitely worth reading!!! If you don't beleive you can change the world through prayer after reading this book....then you didn't pay attention.

I consider this one of the best teaching books I've ever read, and one I'm sure I'll keep coming back to in the future. It's a fairly short, but extremely powerful treatise on prayer, a topic absolutely central to the Christian life, but too often sadly neglected. For starters, I am very impressed that the author chose to remain anonymous. This was quite an unusual choice (almost unheard-of, in fact, as far as I know) but it really contributes to the power of the book. Knowing that it was written, not for the fame, or financial gain of the author, but that the Church might receive the benefit of the teaching, and that God might be glorified, really amplifies the message. In line with the author's humility in embracing anonymity, is his style of teaching, which I would describe as exceptionally meek and gentle. I have read teaching books where the doctrine was generally quite good, but was presented in a kind of "lecturing" tone, which I can imagine that more sensitive readers would find discouraging. Not so with this book: the author passes up every opportunity to "browbeat" his audience, bringing encouragement, instead of condemnation. On the whole, I felt that the author did an excellent job of clearly showing us prayer for what it truly is: the conversation of a child with his Father. If only we would learn to come to God in this way, in simple faith, without formulas and preconceived notions, I honestly believe we would find the results to be utterly amazing.

    For a Christian classic, I had never heard of this book before but I am ever so glad I found it here in the recommended section on Goodreads. The book says its written by an 'Unknown Christian', but on googling this book you can easily look up who has, it is claims, written it. This book is unashamedly about prayer. Its a fireball of encouragement to get you on your knees. This book isn't simply the about putting your hands together and hoping for the best, oh no, this book means business! The autho For a Christian classic, I had never heard of this book before but I am ever so glad I found it here in the recommended section on Goodreads. The book says its written by an 'Unknown Christian', but on googling this book you can easily look up who has, it is claims, written it. This book is unashamedly about prayer. Its a fireball of encouragement to get you on your knees. This book isn't simply the about putting your hands together and hoping for the best, oh no, this book means business! The author goes to great lengths to drive home to every man or woman who has made a commitment to Christ, their responsibility to pray and the effects of what happens when you seek the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind. I know prayer is vital and I know I have a long way to go but I am determined to seek the face of the Lord and this has been such a wonderful help, I simply cannot remove it from my Kindle, ever! The book gives details of the result of prayer in the lives of our family, friends, nations and revivals. Want to see more of God? More prayer! Want to see family and friends save? More prayer! Want to see a nation turn back to God? More prayer. Yes, yes, Louisa I know all this, so I thought did I but this book really humbles you to realise the relationship we can have with the father and the change he wants to bring through us, us! Being steadfast and committed to enter into his presence without formula but relying solely on the inspiration of the Holy Spirit is the only way we will pray what is on the father's heart not the way this world can force or manipulate or trick us into. We may think that praying for certain things is right, but God ultimately knows what we SHOULD and NEED to be praying for. The real, nitty gritty, earth shattering, heaven rending prayers that we know not how to pray for but the Holy Spirit can. This book encourages you to get to KNOW your father more through prayer, know where he wants you to go and more than that he'll go with you. I highly recommend this book, let's start some spiritual fires in our hearts!

    When I was in Bible college we read dozens of books on prayer. Without a doubt this is the best. I have read it several times. Each time I read it I am challenged to reignite my prayer life and my wonder for God is awakened. This is a must read!

The author of this classic is unknown but the book has influenced many to press into the presence of God.

As someone who reads a great deal on prayer, I have found few works on the subject that could be so easily used as a foundation text for teaching or discipleship. It is imminently practical, uplifting and, yet, demanding all at the same time. These twelve chapters will provoke you if you take time to dwell on the truths they contain.

    This is an incredible book on prayer. The unknown author makes the point that while there is no higher calling for the christian than a life of prayer, he also points out that it just also lead to action for God. If your prayer llfe needs revitalization, this classic will open your eyes.

    "'Pray' is an invitation to be accepted rather than a command to be obeyed." What a privilege to go to God with everything and experience His love and power as he speaks with us and answers us. The book, "The Kneeling Christian" teaches us what the Bible says about prayer, and how we can know God and His plan for us better through prayer. I loved this book, and will read it again and again! Thanks, Mark, for recommending it.

    Our administrative team read this together. I was surprised to discover that it only has 89 pages. We missed weeks of reading and so the book seemed longer than it really is. Because of that, it was also hard to remember what was said in previous chapters. None of which has anything to do with the book itself! Our group also had different versions of it. Mine seemed to be an original "old-language" style, while others had a version with more modern wording. That didn't make any difference, really Our administrative team read this together.

Mine seemed to be an original "old-language" style, while others had a version with more modern wording. That didn't make any difference, really. I think this book was really an encouragement to us to pray, not as a duty and not as a way to twist God's arm, but as a way to speak to Him as a father and to deepen our relationship with Him. One of my biggest take-aways from the book has been to spend part of my prayer time just focusing on God and on His character and praising Him for who He is. I have a prayer app that I use called Prayer Mate. As I read verses that I can use as prayers, I add them to this app. It really helps me focus my prayers on what God wants, not on my wish list. So, I do recommend this book. If you don't care for an old-fashioned writing style, look for the version that has been updated. If you don't get hung up on an older style, I actually recommend the original. I got my on Kindle for .99 cents.

    I'd give it a 2.5 if I could but it doesn't allow for it and it is more of a 2 than a 3 in my humble opinion. Some good nuggets in the book and it offers some great challenges to one's prayer life to be sure but overall I was not in any way mind blown by it. I also think the way that I feel about it is related to some of the theology that is presented in the author's writing that I differ with and in those places didn't find the author's interpretation of the Bible to be the best hermenuetics an I'd give it a 2.5 if I could but it doesn't allow for it and it is more of a 2 than a 3 in my humble opinion.

However, lots of folks on here gave it 5 stars so maybe I am in the minority in how I feel. Either way I think any Christian could benefit from reading it through for themselves as a challenge to their prayer life.

    I tried checking top 10 lists about prayer and surprisingly this was not included. This has inspired me to get down onto my knees to pray for others, and to even enrich my prayer life. The simplicity of the writing and sincerity of the heart, coupled with encouraging narratives (like Praying Hyde), this is an easily accessible yet scripturally inspired writing for anyone desirous for a vibrant Christian walk.

    I thought the book started as a redundant telling that the kingdom of heaven was like a piggy bank where we could just ask and get what we wanted. However, about the middle of the book Reverend Richardson showed how the Lord would not allow our prayers to be that way and the second half of the book explained why. ex I would recommend the book for people that have been saved for a while. Thank you for the free use.

    Originally published anonymously, but generally attributed to Albert Deane Richardson, this is a very convicting treatise on Christian prayer. I do not give my whole endorsement to it: it makes a number of points about God “needing” prayer and what He “can’t do” without it which are literally false but which I believe the author used non-literally. For all that, it hit me where I needed to be hit and I believe I benefited from it greatly.

    This book was such a tender precious gift I am not sure how I chose this book on Amazon. I rather suspect it chose me. As I opened the book and the pages unfolded... they fed my soul and awakened a deep yearning and calling in my soul.. to truly pray, For my family, my community, my state, American, the entire world, to seek the heart and face of the Eternal Creator of the world!

    The Kneeling Christian I chose this book because of its title - it intrigued me. I read the day and proceeded with reading. I read part and opted to text-to-audio for the other part. There a lot of scriptural references and usage in the book. I like how it began by discussing how to make our places of worship grow, community outreach, etc. Overall, this makes for an interesting read. It short and quick, but interesting .

    Though I haven’t finished it I recommend any book that brings you closer to God. Though the Bible is the most vital book in understanding who our loving, gracious and merciful God is, this book helps you understand how to know God better through Biblical principles. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to know Who God is.

    This book is a gem. It has all you need to know about prayer, and all you may need to drive you to your knees. It's Bible based, practical and convicting. Its message is not lost in jargon as with many books on prayer. I hope the books challenges every reader to a life of fervent prayer, as it has done to me.

    You could read this book for free on google play books by aneko press nothing new if you already read a lot of books about prayers, but this is such a classic book you dont want to missed out about prayer. the content was simple with a lot of examples. half of the book talk about the importance of prayer, and half of the book talk about how to pray.

    I hate to give it just two stars, but I wasn't very insightful; it just covered the same grounds as many other books on prayer that covered the basics. It did have quite a few interesting quotes and a few testimonies. I'd recommend it for someone starting in the Christian life.

    Conviction and encouragement to pray The author is very thorough in his exhortation to pray. He explained the hindrances and how to overcome the hindrances and backs it all up with God’s word.

    Here is a treasure trove of Scripture's promises for prayer and about prayer. The author, a missionary, interweaves many memorable true stories, and leaves none of the troubling questions and doubts unaddressed. Don't read it in a day. This one merits small bites and digestion.
