Book Overview

Editor Susanna Wright offers this updated edition of a Christian devotional classic--invoking the daily prayers and timeless imagery of the original text through modern, accessible language.

In this wonderful collection, famed theologian Dr. John Baillie shares personal prayers for people who are seeking a better understanding of God and themselves. Organized by morning and evening--with special prayers for Sundays--A Diary of Private Prayer is written with eloquence, piety, and directness. Blending praise and meditative thoughts about God with a concern for the social and individual good, these daily invocations help and inspire us to search our inner selves and find the deep religious beliefs that lie within.

First published in 1936, A Diary of Private Prayer remains a seminal Christian devotional with more than a million copies in print. This modern edition--completely redesigned into a gift package--admirably preserves all the qualities of the original, ensuring that the wisdom of God and the wonder of Baillie's prayers remain accessible for many generations to come.

   The daily prayers in this book are amazing. It is a classic for a reason
Daily prayers in this book are amazing, Morgenthau said. It's a classic for a reason. The book is in the top three bestselling devotionals of all time. Other two are Valley Vision and Spurgeon's Morning and Evening, both by Alistair Begg.
   Private Ptayer
Rarely do people get to enjoy the true private prayers of others. I am better for these special letters written 1-31 days morning and evening. I strongly recommend this book to you as Priscilla Shirer recommended it to me during the book study. Thanks for the tip.
   Wonderful start and end to your day
Sarah Brabawski, co-editor of Harper's Bazaar, said: "I absolutely love this book. Each day there will be a morning and evening prayer. It's great to have that extra piece of paper to start my devotional time, praying the Lord's Word. Many times I am so moved I am brought to tears. There is a blank page for each prayer where yoh can write your own thoughts and prayers, using it as a journal.
   Deeply Spiritual Prayers for morning and evening.
I will always have it by your side.
   Morning and evening prayers for a month.
I felt close to God when I was reading the prayers.
   No Substitute for the Original
This purchase is so disappointing and lacks the poetic and beautiful words of this master of words and prayers that was so motivating for morning and evening devotionals. If you have never read the entire story, you are not going to understand. The book is in good condition, but the publisher is not able to locate a copy. Yes, I will.
This book is a beautiful, eloquent, yet personal prayer guide.
   What a wonderful resource!
When I pray, I tend to get stuck on myself or my family's needs, he said. This book of prayers takes me away from that and into the world around me. For example, on 19th day, I prayed for those who work on the land, those who have hard physical labor, those who buy and sell, those who care for their families, he said. It is highly recommended for people who have lost a good deal of their mind.
   Five Stars
This book is a wonderful help which enables, inspires, and shapes communication with our Lord.

This was a present that I gave to her as a birthday present. I had not heard of it, Melissa said. It was so much fun to give as gifts, Ms. Kennedy said.
