Conquering Prayer: Or the Power of Personality (Classic Reprint)
In the perusal of this small volume the reader will do well to start with a clear understanding on two points: - First, that the following pages are not intended to be in any sense a complete or exhaustive treatment of the subject of Prayer. The subject is so vast, and in the consideration of it, so many alluring avenues of thought open up, that it has been no easy matter to exercise self-restraint and keep within the bounds set by an attempt to deal with a great subject in a limited space. Of necessity many aspects of Prayer have been left untouched, while others have been merely indicated.
The subject has naturally divided itself into two parts - the one dealing with Man's appeal to, and demand upon, the Immanent God, 'Who worketh in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure ': and the other treating of his relations with the Transcendent God, Who while above and beyond all created things, yet concerns Himself intimately with the affairs of human life, and brings to bear upon them the greater powers and resources that lie outside the domain of man's limited nature.
As may be expected, these differing standpoints give rise to widely differing views of Prayer, and those who hold the one set of views often fail to appreciate the other: it is but rarely that the same mind can do full justice to both.
