LORD TEACH US TO PRAY offers encouragement for a deeper, more intimate, and more intense prayer life. After some opening remarks, the book offers a penetrating and insightful analysis of the shining examples of prayer in the lives of Jacob, Moses, David, Jesus, Paul, and others. The author tells how he was inspired to pray on seeing Perthshire’s Schiehallion mountain covered in winter snow. Alexander Whyte was born in 1836 in Kirriemuir, Angus, and educated at King’s College, Aberdeen, and New College, Edinburgh. He served as a minister of the Free Church of Scotland in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, and later as principal of New College, Edinburgh. After the Bible, the writings of Puritan Thomas Goodwin were among his favorites. Whyte is most remembered as a powerful preacher. This book is a collection of his sermons given between 1895 and 1906.
