Praying Always is a brief but remarkable study of the life of prayer. With great simplicity and directness of style it covers a variety of important themes: prayer which is secret, persevering, improper, arrogant, humble, bold, true, pleading, effectual, thankful and unfulfilled. It concludes with a powerful warning of what happens when prayer is 'too late'.
Written in a pastoral and devotional spirit, but with profound and, at times, devastating honesty, Frans Bakker's work abounds in striking insights into the human heart. he frequently exposes man's self-deception, not harshly, but by a sensitive unfolding of the teaching of Scripture.
Praying Always teaches us about prayer; it also shows us our need of the God of grace to whom we pray and helps us to enter his presence.
