The Prayer Life


Morgan & Scott 1914

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Prayer is, in very deed, the pulse of the spiritual life. This volume was written to help leaders of the Church, ministers, and elders see that in spiritual work, everything depends upon prayer. At the same time, it was meant for all believers who long for a life connected with the Lord. Andrew Murray divides his study on prayer into three parts:

  • The Prayer Life
  • The Inner Chamber
  • The Deepest Secret of Pentecost


In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages are tagged and appear on mouse-over. For scholarly work or personal Bible study, this makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “holiness” or “John 15:1–2.”

About Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray (1828–1917) was born in Graaff Reinet, South Africa, to Dutch missionary parents. Educated at King’s College, Aberdeen, he then studied theology at the University of Utrecht. Andrew and his older brother John were ordained in the Dutch Reformed Church in 1848. Murray pastored South African churches in Bloemfontein, Worcester, Cape Town, and Wellington. A champion of missionary work, he founded the South African General Mission in 1889. That ministry continued to grow, and today it is part of the SIM (Serving in Mission) organization.

A prolific author and lecturer, Murray authored over 200 books during his lifetime, and he was invited to speak at churches and conferences all over the world. Married for over 60 years and the father of eight children, Murray passed away in January 1917.
