This series of 31 lessons, written in 1895, are meditations on different themes or aspects of prayer in the life of Christians. Each chapter, or lesson, derives its theme from a short Scripture passage, which is then expounded in a loose, devotional manner. The first lesson (“Lord, teach us to pray”) informs the spirit and structure of each of the remaining lessons, as the exposition is followed by a prayer – the idea is brought out clearly that the teaching and devoted study of Scripture leads, and should lead, to prayer. An appendix to the addresses provides an account of prayer in the life of the English pastor George Muller, a figure well-known and admired by Murray.
