They brim with deep emotion and transparent. This is a book that teaches readers to pray. Sometimes the prayers are so meaningful and relevant that I will pray. I cannot think of any Christian who would not benefit from these prayers.

Podcast: Download. Subscribe: RSS. On this final episode of season two of Open Book , Stephen Nichols and John MacArthur discuss a collection of Puritan prayers that reflects true, pure, elevated worship. It is a compilation of Puritan prayers.

But, again, my life is a combination of many things, and we started talking about The Existence and Attributes of God. And we talked what it means to really worship, thinking deeply about the Word of God, and having elevated worship. As part of elevated worship, I was always concerned about the superficiality of prayer that I heard in churches.

I always saw that priestly role as that intercessory role, and I struggled week after week after week to take that pastoral prayer. But my role as a priest in lifting people before the Lord was challenging to me. I started praying the Psalms, and I still do that even to this day. Whatever passage of Scripture we read—and we do read the Word in the service—I pray back through that Scripture, but I needed to enrich those prayers. So I found The Valley of Vision , and I began to read those and take portions of that very powerful, rich verbiage and incorporate it in my priestly pastoral prayer.

So, it was more than just prayers that I read. It was prayers that found their way into my praying for this congregation. I would tear up books of Valley of Vision , tear the pages out, take them into the pulpit, and underline the section that I wanted to include in the prayer.

It was interesting because people began to hear a praying at a much richer and theologically deep level. So, what this book provided for me was being able to speak about the same great truths and finding fresh language to say it.

It eventually led to a book that my kids had published, where they took my prayers from those Sundays, selected them, and did a book on the prayers that they heard me give in the pulpit.

My kids did that. You can just go back to them. It also has to do with that proper view of ourselves. A really important insight, Steve. Yes, absolutely right. We are a throwback church. We are an anomaly church. We talk about this all the time. I think one of the amazing blessings in our church is that we take in about one hundred new members a month, and we think about 80 percent of them—a little more maybe—are thirty and under. Where are we? We were just miles away from Hollywood, and here you are.

They can get all of the entertainment they want somewhere else. We want to make it as much like heaven as possible. This has been delightful. Thank you. They do. Every faithful Christian should be an avid reader of good books. A great season of Open Book, and thank you. My pleasure. Transcript lightly edited for readability. Share This Episode.

The strength of Puritan character and life lay in prayer and meditation. In this practice the spirit of prayer was regarded as of first importance and the best form of prayer, for living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality. Yet prayer is also vocal and may therefore on occasions be written. Consequently in the Puritan tradition there are many written prayers and meditations which constitute an important corpus of inspiring devotional literature.

For many years, I never really saw the point of them. I mean, why would one benefit from reciting or quietly reading the prayers written down by others? It was reasoning along this line that held me back from using anything other than the Bible to seek inspirational material for an active prayer life. Goodness knows how many books published in recent times have apparently run roughshod over the true message of hope contained in the pages of the Holy Book.

Contents The Valley of Vision TheValleyofVision Lord, high and holy, meek and lowly, Thou hast brought me to the valley of vision, where I live in the depths but see Thee in the heights; hemmed in by mountains of sin I behold Thy glory. Let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up, that to be low is to be high, that the broken heart is the healed heart, that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit, that the repenting soul is the victorious soul, that to have nothing is to possess all, that to bear the cross is to wear the crown, that to give is to receive, that the valley is the place of vision.
