Abstract:

This is a book of personal devotions which compels a deep searching of one's inner life. Dr. Baillie has written each prayer so that it has that rare quality of seeming to have been written for the reader personally, to fit his own special needs. Here is an understanding of the aspects of God's relation to man and man's relation to God through prayer. Adoration, meditation, and intercession are mingled with a strong sense of the social needs of the world as well as the needs of the individual - all done with that perfect taste and feeling for worship for which Dr. Baillie is so widely recognized. If private prayer may be characterized as the wrestling of the soul with God, this book will be of real assistance in making that struggle not only easier, but more constructive. -- Publisher's description.
