This book brings together some of the most helpful prayers and teaching about prayer of the past two millennia, offering a vast collection of over 5,000 prayers and writings about prayer. Although it does include hundreds of contemporary prayers, its focus is on the rich and often neglected heritage of classic Christian prayers. Prayers are organized by theme and occasion, to make it easy to find a particular prayer. There are also indexes of first lines; subjects; and authors and sources. All prayers are addressed to one of the Trinity. Authors range from Abelard and Ambrose through Wesley and Zwingli. The second part of the Encyclopedia offers over seventy extracts from classic teachings on prayer and praise, as well as prayer collections, stories about prayer and people who prayed, and prayers to be prayed with children. A galaxy of devotional and scholarly writings are included, with authors including Augustine, Bunyan, Calvin, Brother Lawrence, Luther, Origen, C. H. Spurgeon, Wesley and Whitefield. Probably the largest collection of prayers published in the last century, this Encyclopedia will be an indispensable reference tool and aid for your personal prayer life.
