This short “treatise” is taken from Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion – his magnum opus and a fundamental theological text of the Reformed Tradition. The first edition of the Institutes was a short work of six chapters, published in 1536; by the fifth and final edition in 1559 it had been greatly revised and enlarged (79 chapters), reflecting Calvin's mature thought and theological understanding. Divided into four books, it is effectively a “systematic” Theology, moving from:
God the Creator
God the Redeemer in Christ
The mode of obtaining the Grace of Christ
The Holy Catholic Church
This treatise comprises chapter 20 of Book Three (“The Mode of Obtaining the Grace of Christ. The Benefits It Confers, and the Effects Resulting from It.”). The 52 sections cover important and essential aspects of prayer, including an exposition of the Lord's Prayer.
