Prayer and the Prayer Meeting


Loizeaux Brothers

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Why should we pray? How does God answer prayer? In Prayer and the Prayer Meeting, Mackintosh provides a thorough scriptural analysis of the key texts on prayer, including the ways in which Jesus prays, along with his instructions to the disciples to do the same. Mackintosh uses these texts to determine the basis and function of prayer, especially corporate prayer. He provides instruction for conducting public prayer and for cultivating an attitude and posture of prayer.

Prayer, he says, leads to unity. But to become unified, the church must resist formalism, powerless profession, dead routine, and mechanical religiousness. Prayer and the Prayer Meeting contains helpful advice and encouragement for building and maintaining an active prayer life.

Praise for the Print Edition

Man’s complete ruin in sin, and God’s perfect remedy in Christ, are fully, clearly, and often strikingly presented [in Mackintosh’s writings].

—Andrew Miller, a leader of the Plymouth Brethren movement
