Author: Samuel Lee
Publisher: Puritan Publications
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.

“Secret duties are the most soul-enriching duties," writes Brooks in this treatise on private prayer.

“Secret duties are the most soul-enriching duties," writes Brooks in this treatise on private prayer. "Look! as secret meals make fat bodies—so secret duties make fat souls. And as secret trades brings in great earthly riches, so secret prayers makes many rich in spiritual blessings and in heavenly riches. Private prayer is that secret key of heaven which unlocks all the treasures of glory to the soul. The best riches and the sweetest mercies, God usually gives to His people—when they are in their closets upon their knees. All the graces of the saints are enlivened, and nourished, and strengthened by the sweet secret influences which their souls fall under, when they are in their closet-communion with God. Certainly there are none so rich in gracious experiences, as those who are most exercised in closet duties. As the tender dew which falls in the silent night makes the grass and herbs and flowers to flourish and grow more abundantly than great showers of rain which fall in the day; so secret prayer will more abundantly cause the sweet herbs of grace and holiness to grow and flourish in the soul, than all those more open, public, and visible duties of religion, which too, too often, are mingled and mixed with the sun and wind of pride and hypocrisy.”
In this collection of 120 daily devotions, Murray reveals spiritual gems of truth about the personal revelation we can access when we abide with Christ in our secret prayer spaces.
Author: Andrew Murray
Publisher: Whitaker House
Jesus said, “When thou prayest, enter into thine inner chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret.” (See Matthew 6:6 RV.) This means two things. First, shut the world out, and withdraw from all worldly thoughts and activities. Second, shut yourself in alone with God, to pray to Him in secret. Let this be your chief aim in prayer: to realize the presence of your heavenly Father. Let your watchword be, “Alone with God.” —Andrew Murray From time spent alone in prayer, Andrew Murray discovered that every Christian can expect God to reveal Himself in intimate, powerful, and soul-restoring ways. In this collection of 120 daily devotions, Murray reveals spiritual gems of truth about the personal revelation we can access when we abide with Christ in our secret prayer spaces. Through those intimate hours spent with your Savior, you will experience the depths of God’s abiding presence, the joyful sense of peace that comes from fellowship with our heavenly Father, and the abundant life in Christ that is available to all who seek it. You will discover that God has already granted you everything you will ever need, and that He delights in saying “yes” to you!

There are beautiful and wild forces within us.'' With these words, the mystic St. Francis described what ancient traditions believed was the most powerful force in the universe - the power of prayer. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden has searched for evidence of a forgotten form of prayer that was lost in the West following the biblical edits of the early Christian Church. In the 1990's, he found and documented this form of prayer still being used in the remote monasteries of central Tibet. He also found it practiced in sacred rites throughout the high deserts of the American Southwest. In this book, Braden describes this ancient form of prayer that has no words or outward expressions. Then, for the first time in print, he leads us on a journey exploring what our most intimate experiences tell us about our deepest beliefs. Through case histories and personal accounts, Braden explores the wisdom of these timeless secrets, and the power that awaits each of us just beyond our deepest hurt!
This book describes the importance of prayer and its requirements.
Author: Imam Al-Ghazali
Publisher: Islam Digital
This book describes the importance of prayer and its requirements. It describes what is essential for the disciple in terms of the external acts and its inner secrets of prayer, and revealing its refined hidden meanings in terms of humility, sincerity and intention. Presented to the English speaking public is a translation of two chapters of Ghazal's great work, Ihya .ulum al-din. The chapter is entitled kitabasrar al-salah (the book of the secrets of prayer and its requirements). This translation was originally carried out by E E Caverley which I have edited in places to give the reader a clearer understanding of the text and correcting the Quranic references. I have also included in the book the prophetic narrations in the original Arabic to give the reader of Arabic a fuller flavour of the intended meaning. The two chapters selected are entitled "fefadail al-salahwa al-sajudwa-aljama.hwa al-azaanwaibarihaÃ¯" (virtue of the prayer, prostration, congregation, call to prayer and its precepts). And the third chapter from the book entitled fee shuruut al-batinah min a.amaal al-qalb. (Inward stipulations for the acts of the heart) The first chapter generally focuses on the pre-eminent status of prayer and its superiority over all other forms of worship in Islam. Instilling in the one who is about to initiate the prayer the enormity and seriousness of the action. The second chapter in the book focuses on the mind-set of the one who is engaged in prayer, humility being a fundamental pillar in this regard. Imam Ghazali also offers practical remedies to attain this status of humility and describes the base nature of heedlessness before one's Creator. I hope this book acts as a means of proximity since nothing can facilitate this noble goal to reach one's Lord but the Prayer. But prostate in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah) Surah Alaq.19

Author: Kyle DiRoberts
Publisher: B&H Books
Everyone want to know how to talk to God and get answers to their prayers. Yet most people are skeptical of prayer, or convinced they're doing it wrong. Is there a secret to talking with God?

Humility. The Secret to Prayer will take readers on a 31-day journey, examining the heart and actions of biblical characters whose prayers were answered. On the other side of the journey, readers will have a more vibrant prayer life, and a more intimate relationship with the God to whom we pray.
