Book Description

Originally published as Facets of PrayerPraying Always is a brief but remarkable study of the life of prayer. With great simplicity and directness of style it covers a variety of important themes: prayer which is secret, persevering, improper, arrogant, humble, bold, true, pleasing, effectual, thankful, and unfulfilled. It concludes with a powerful warning of what happens when prayer is ‘too late.’

Written in a pastoral and devotional spirit, but with profound honesty, Frans Bakker’s work abounds in striking insights into the human heart. He frequently exposes humanity’s self-deception, not harshly, but by a sensitive unfolding of the teaching of Scripture.

Praying Always teaches us about prayer; it also shows us our need of the God of grace to whom we pray and helps us to enter his presence. All who read this engaging and deeply challenging book will realise in a new way the greatness of the Christian’s privilege of prayer.

This edition was updated with a new design and a modern, readable typeset in 2023.

  1. Marie Dullnig

    With a few others we set aside 3 days of prayer and fasting regarding the COVID 19 virus. I grabbed a book about prayer off my husband’s shelf. I had no idea that there remained a “virus in my own heart” until I read this little book. It exposed previous sins not fully confessed and brought much needed re-examination and repentance. This personal housekeeping of my heart prepared me to humbly yet boldly ask for mercy and healing from God to cover our land and the nations affected by the C-virus. Highly recommend this little, 100 page power packed devotional. (Just wish it cost less so I could stock up and give as gifts!)

    I found this book in my grandpa’s flat after his death. I can say that I found a real treasure. I just read the first theme (prayer in secret), but I want to read the others, too.
    This man, Frans Bakker, wrote this text many many years before, but the words and the sentences are soooo actual in the present and in my life!

  3. Brett Rudder

    Pound for pound the best available book on prayer. 12 very brief chapters on the nature of prayer, different types of prayer, our need for the God we pray to, and full of Scripture throughout. For every Christian. A once-a-year sort of book.
