Kneeling Christian Review:
This small book is big on the theology of prayer. But it isn’t written in a text book manner. Instead, this “unknown Christian” simply goes to the Scripture and points out to the reader how important prayer is to the life of a believer. The first chapter alone gets your attention. In it the author states that a person’s greatest regret, once in heaven, will be to look back and wonder why he or she didn’t pray more. When a person realizes how much can be gained by praying, it should astound us that we don’t do it more.
This is one of the few books I own that is such a classic that I read it every year. It never grows old, because its message is truly timeless. I highly recommend it to new and older Christians of every persuasion!
This book examines the concept of prayerlessness in the Christian community of its day – and in looking at the promises of God in the Gospel of John, the author reaches some conclusions on why Christians don’t pray and why, many times, it appears that God does not answer. The book is not for the faint at heart – this anonymous Christian writer, most likely an Anglican clergyman named Albert Richardson, is very, very serious about the issue of prayer. His closing comment in the book is this:
Prayer is our highest privilege, our gravest responsibility, and the greatest power God has put in our hands. Prayer, real prayer, is the noblest, the sublimest, the most stupendous act that any creature of God can perform.
And with this sentiment, the author points out that the problem with prayer isn’t God – it’s man! Prayerlessness stems not from God’s inaction or inability, but rather from man’s apathy, lack of discipline or even sin that hinders his prayers. The author also introduces the reader to some wonderful men and women of the faith who were prayer warriors – and this is done in an encouraging way that challenges all Christians to take this spiritual discipline more seriously.
Overall The Kneeling Christian is a very good read – it would make a great gift to a Christian friend wanting to deepen their prayer life and walk with the Lord – but read it first yourself!
