"Power in Prayer" by Andrew Murray



Andrew Murray. Power in Prayer: Classic Devotions to Inspire and Deepen Your Prayer Life. Bethany House, 2011. 167 pgs. 

A second good devotional book in the same month? What are the odds? Then again, when one of them is by Andrew Murray, those odds go up significantly. 

What we have here is an edited, and updated, collection of over 150 select devotions on prayer from the vast array of such entries Andrew Murray has left for those interested. They are updated in that the language has been made modern, and selected seemingly with the intention of being the best of what is available (which is all pretty good stuff in my opinion). 

Andrew Murray has long been a go to author for me. His devotional thoughts are not made up of theological genius, nor stunning literary style. They are simple and many of them seem like common sense after you read them. And yet, they are powerful. They are poignant. Spiritually speaking, they usually hit uncomfortably close to the mark and force me to actually think, reflect, pray, and change. I really can't ask for more in a devotional, and so Andrew Murray will remain one of my go to authors when I know I need someone to speak truth into my soul. Having it in modern language just makes it easier to recommend and pass on to others. Someone should borrow this book from me ASAP!

Conclusion: 5 Stars. Recommended. I think I have said it all already.
