Deeper prayer life

Richard Foster writes, "“There is no better way to learn about prayer than by praying, and we can have no better teacher than John Baillie. It is good to debate the mysteries of prayer, to ponder the profundities of prayer, to learn the methods of prayer. It is better to pray.”


Baillie was a Scottish theologian. His "A Diary of Private Prayer" (1936) is a devotional classic. He offers a month of prayers for morning and evening. The most recent editions are in a more contemporary language, but there is a way of having both. The website thisdayipray.com comes up on the appropriate day of the month with either the morning or evening prayer, depending on the time. The default is the original text; at the bottom right, you can switch to a more modern rendering. Baillie is deep -- I invite you (and me) to pray with him.
