Contents: I. The possibility or prayer as heard and answered --
the two beings involved --
the intellectual reaction of the two --
the similar intellectual work --
II. The probability of prayer as heard or answered --
the two beings, God and man, are both moral beings --
they are both at work on the moral plane --
III. The law of personality in its bearing on prayer --
personality in God --
personality in man --
the law calls for prayer and secures answer --
IV. The factor of sin as affecting prayer --
it does not destroy the natural need --
it makes it the more necessary --
through God's special mercy, it does not make the answer less probable --
V. The kingdom of God as related to prayer --
it is originally arranged for prayer and its answers --
the kingdom is the human soul --
the kingdom in its progress in the world --
both these involve the natural and the supernatural --

VI. Prayer as related to natural law --
theory of original foresight and arrangement --
theory of a law of miracles --
theory of personal will --
VII. Negative answers to prayer are actual answers --
such answers required when the petition is out of line with the dispensation --

VIII. The reactions of sin as they induce prayer --
the reactions of error --
the reactions of ages --
the reactions of souls --
IX. The circular motion of prayer --
it descends from God --
it takes in man's voluntary petitions on its way --
it rises again to God; since its inspirer and its answerer are one --
X. The Lord's prayer as our model --
in its arrangement --
in its petition --
in its scope --
in its spirit --
XI. Supposed limitations on prayer --
from man's feebleness --
from God's greatness --
XII. Prayer in its prophecy --
its increasing volume --
its increasing purity --
its natural result --
the ultimate man a praying man --
