I did not write this little work with the thought of its being given to the public. It was prepared for the help of a few Christians who were desirous of loving God with the whole heart. But so many have requested copies of it, because of the benefit they have derived from its perusal, that I have been asked to publish it.

A Short and Easy Method of Prayer was originally circulated privately but proved to be so popular that it was finally made available to the public in 1685. Written by French mystic, writer, and preacher MADAME JEANNE-MARIE BOUVIER DE LA MOTTE-GUYON (1648-1717), this brief treatise is divided into 24 chapters, each chapter a step along the path to God. These clear and simple precepts-translated from the French by Thomas D. Brook and published in English in this edition in 1867-were written with the average person in mind, and include Madame Guyon's thoughts on meditation, self-abandonment, suffering, self-examination, distractions and temptations, prayer as a sacrifice, the distinction between inward and outward acts, and more. Madame Guyon's words of encouragement will inspire the modern reader much as they inspired her 17th-century counterpart.

Samuel Lee (1625-1691) was a learned puritan divine and preacher who ministered in both England and New England. What is prayer? And what is the difference between prayer and secret prayer? What is the best method for secret prayer according to Scripture for the Christian? Lee expounds Matthew 6:6 in a most able and helpful manner to show the Christian what God expects in secret prayer, “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” Lee covers the duty of secret prayer, managing secret prayer, various important directions for secret prayer, how one knows when their prayers are answered, how to discern if one has prayed well in order to gain the most profit from secret prayer, a number of questions on prayer both generally and specifically, and a final application of how prayer can be made most rewarding to the Christian overall. This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
