There are many books on prayer but few that offer such rich insight into the prayers of St. Paul recorded in the Epistles. As you read Pink's reflections on the prayers of the apostle, your own prayer life will be revitalized. “Such was the fervor of his love for Christ and the members of His mystical body; such was his intense solicitude for their spiritual well-being and growth, that there continually gushed from his soul a flow of prayer to God for them, and thanksgiving on their behalf.” Not only will you be inspired to deeper and more frequent prayer, but your understanding of the believer's relationship to the Lord will be enlarged. As Pink points out in the introduction, “With the exception of the prayers of our Redeemer, only in the Apostolic prayers are praises and petitions specifically addressed to ‘the Father.’ Of all the prayers of Scripture, only these are offered in the name of the Mediator. Futhermore, in these apostolic prayers alone do we find the full breathings of the Spirit of adoption.”

Author Bio

A. W. Pink (1886–1952) pastored churches in the United States and Australia for most of his working life. At the age of 24, Pink experienced an evangelical conversion and crossed the Atlantic from Great Britain to study at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. But after only six weeks, he left to take up a pastoral ministry during which he found his way to a strictly Calvinistic position in theology.

In 1922, Pink produced a monthly magazine entitled Studies in the Scriptures which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide. Pink devoted his life to the study and exposition of the Scriptures and became the author, also under the name Arthur Walkington Pink, of numerous books which the Banner of Truth Trust began publishing after Pink’s death.

Articles, books, tracts, and pamphlets, including the notable Exposition of Hebrews and The Nature of God, can be found in the A. W. Pink Collection (40 vols.). Also available from Logos are The Godhood of God, Why Four Gospels?, The Divine Inspiration of the Bible, and The Law and the Saint.
