In With Christ in the School of Prayer, Andrew
Murray provides one of the most comprehensive
works on prayer. If we would follow his teaching
in each lesson, put them to work, we would reach
what I see as a Master's Degree in Prayer.
When I say "Master's" I speak of our Lord Jesus our
Summarized here is this Inspired work by Andrew Murray.
So you can get the main points quickly,
Bolding of type is used on purpose so the main points pop
out at you more quickly. At the end of each chapter, or
lesson, there is link provided so you can read the
whole chapter from his original text, free online.
It's my view, if, when you take, spend an intensive
month, taking a lesson a day, it will bring you into
a prayer life as it is intended to be. It will be like
"I can't believe I have been missing this all this time"...
how wonderful it is to live everyday in His Presence
and in communication and fellowship with Him.
Take a chapter or lesson a day. He wrote 31 lessons,
so to read one each day over a month,
as a focus of devotion.
Partner with someone else as you do it. I am
available as your partner if you don't have someone
in particular in mind. This will get you through it and
in an extra level of power and insight.
