Developing a Healthy Prayer Life: 31 Meditations on Communing with God

James W. Beeke and Joel R. Beeke

Reformation Heritage Books, 2010, 99pp., paperback, $10 / £7.50

ISBN 978-1-60178-112-3

This is the first in a planned series of volumes providing 31 meditations on a given subject. Each portion consists of a verse or two from the Word clearly dealing with the topic followed by no more than two or three pages of lucid and warm comment. There is a sense of development throughout the volume, giving the sense that if one were to use this as a daily devotional help over the course of a month, there might be genuine progress in understanding and engagement with God. A book like this cannot make us pray, nor will reading it instantly solve all our problems in prayer, but as a guide in the intentions and substance of prayer, gratefully received and earnestly practiced, it may be of much help in teaching us this holy discipline.
