Book Description

According to J C Ryle, private prayer is the most neglected of all Christian duties. That is most unfortunate because private prayer is the true measure of a Christian’s walk before God and ‘the pith and marrow of practical Christianity’. To bestir his readers to the practice and privilege of private prayer, Ryle points out both the blessings of prayer and the grave dangers of prayerlessness.

Prayer under the blessing of God leads to the new birth, strengthens faith, moves mountains, and promotes spiritual growth and contentment that rises above circumstances. Prayerlessness, on the other hand, is the broad road leading to Hell for the unbeliever and the major cause of backsliding in the Christian. Ryle observes that ‘men fall in private long before they fall in public’. His warning is surely a word in season to our contemporary evangelical church, whose witness during the last generation to a lost and perishing world has been sorely compromised by scandals involving so-called Christian leaders.

    Within moments of turning the cover, Ryle begins to change your perception on prayer. Rather than spitting out the old “We can never pray enough,” or “We could all pray a little more” the author gets right to the heart of the issue: prayer is the most important (yet most neglected) responsibility of a Christian. Every objection a reader may have to this idea of a regular prayer life is torn to shreds with a quick word by Ryle, whether with an illustration from nature, a proof by logic, or countless Biblical examples (this is often the case) that render the argument useless. This is a little but important book that will most likely transform how you look at talking to your Heavenly Father.

    With such a simple question – Do You Pray?, Ryle opens the readers heart and mind to carefully and thoroughly examine their own life and honestly answer the pressing question at hand. He not only exposes the issue, but declares the necessity of addressing this vital question in every believers life. A must read for any Christian desiring a deeper walk with God.
