True prayer comes from the heart, so why do we need a method?

In A Method For Prayer, great devotional commentator and pastor Ligon Duncan shows that Christians benefit from discipline just as much as talking freely with God.

Readers will discover the methods Jesus taught, look at styles of prayer, and see helpful examples. Duncan also incorporates some of Matthew Henry's other work on prayer.

About the Author:

Ligon Duncan is the chancellor and CEO of the Reformed Theological Seminary System where he is also John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology. Prior to his appointment, he was the senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, Mississippi.

Matthew Henry (1662-1714), a beloved commentator, was a pastor of a church in Chester and a prolific writer.

Review:

The great and nearly unique benefit of Henry's Method for Prayer is that it flows so directly from the biblical text. His approach enables the believer not only to read the Bible and study the Bible, but also to pray the Bible ~ Philip G. Ryken (President, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois)

When a tool that has helped teach Christians to pray with biblical fidelity and spiritual integrity, across a span of three centuries, is being distributed again and in fresh ways, thoughtful believers can only applaud and give thanks to God for the grace that has brought forth this fruit. ~ D. A. Carson (Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois)

Whether the reader is looking for a guide to public prayer or an encouragement to private prayer, Henry's work is a key text, drawing the mind again and again to Scripture as it seeks to shape our prayer life by the forms and priorities of God's own revelation of Himself. ~ Carl R. Trueman (Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

It's good to see this classic on prayer in an accessible edition. Ligon Duncan has done brilliant work, adapting Matthew Henry for twenty-first century readers without sacrificing any of the depth and devotional value of the original Puritan work. ~ John MacArthur (Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California)
