    I appreciate this short work on prayer by JC Ryle that exhorted Christians to pray Ryle delineates the reason why prayer is important and he goes so far as to say that an individual who doesn’t pray isn’t a Christian As uncomfortable as that thought is Ryle’s certainly has a legitimate point that a Christian who is not communing with God is missing the whole point of why Christians are saved by God’s grace in the first place I think Ryle is also nuanced when he said that prayer in of itself does not save someone to go to heaven but at the same time a non praying person might be someone who does not understand God’s graceThe big uestion that is echoed throughout the book is “Do you pray?” It is convicting and yet encouraging Readers should be prompted to pray as a result of reading this book I appreciated some of the points made throughout the book including the idea that prayer is the simplest of Christian duty and everyone can pray like how a child can cry out to their parents in need Ryle also dealt with people’s excuses about not praying by using the example of Daniel who had the responsibilities of an empire on his shoulders and yet He always made time for prayer I also thought Ryle had a helpful analogy that drives the point home of being particular in one’s prayer to God in the same way a patient would be specific with a doctorThere’s several memorable uotes from the book For instance in talking about the importance that prayers are not done with a cold and apathetic heart towards God JC Ryle said it so memorably “Let us settle it down in our minds that cold prayers are a sacrifice without fire” Another memorable uote from the book was Ryle’s line that “He loves me best who loves me in his prayers” There were many other memorable uotes and points that I think it is actually helpful to read this booklet from time to time preferably once a year
