John Bunyan was imprisoned in 1660 for "unlicensed" preaching in Bedford, England. Besides composing his classic work, Pilgrim's Progress
, during twelve years of intermittent confinement, Bunyan also learned that the only way to glorify God in his sufferings was to pray often and pray devoutly. His thoughts and meditations on prayer were forged on the anvil of religious persecution, and it was from prison that he wrote "true prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of your heart and soul to God."
Gathered from Bunyan's many reflections on prayer in his writings, this new collection on prayer has been edited for today's readers. Archaic language has been rendered in more contemporary English without destroying the beauty and style of Bunyan's Elizabethan expression. This devotional provides great insight into the nature of prayer and will enrich and deepen your experience of prayer and God.
