This book seeks to make the case that what we need in our day is united prayer. It reminds us that the warfare we are engaged in has been fought in every generation and that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds” (2 Corinthians 10:4).
Presented within these pages are excerpts from the works of Jonathan Edwards, Samuel Prime, and Richard Cross. These men, from three different centuries, had the same burden given the needs of their day, the burden that God’s people would be united in prayer.
Remembering God’s marvelous works in the past enlarges our faith in the place of prayer and gives us bright hope for the future. The purpose of this book is to inspire and invigorate God’s people to take up the same mantle in our own generation and to “give ourselves continually to prayer” (Acts 6:4).
