The Best Prayer Books You Must Read

Updated 2019

To people of faith, prayer is as important as breathing. It connects us to the very Creator of the universe, the One who gives us life eternally. Sometimes, we feel the urge to connect with God on a stronger level. Praying isn’t a natural action for some, so they need a little help to say what are the right words and to connect more efficiently. Many prayer books have also been written about saints and the many prayers they’ve compiled over the centuries.

10) Valley of Vision (Leather): A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions Edited by: by Arthur Bennett

  • Book Summary: The strength of Puritan character and life lay in prayer and meditation. In this practice the spirit of prayer was regarded as of first importance and the best form of prayer, for living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality. Yet prayer is also vocal and may therefore on occasions be written. Consequently in the Puritan tradition there are many written prayers and meditations which constitute an important corpus of inspiring devotional literature. Too often ex tempore prayer lacks variety, order and definiteness. The reason for this lies partly in a neglect of due preparation. It is here that the care and scriptural thoroughness which others found necessary in their approach to God may be of help. This book has been prepared not to ‘supply’ prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before.
