J.C. Ryle (1816-1900) challenges us with one simple question: "Do you pray?" In his usual straightforward style, he then proceeds to give seven reasons why the answer you give is important. He concludes with encouragement for those who do not pray, those who desire salvation, and those who do pray. If Ryle's message was needed in his time, how much more so today. His soul-searching question will cause you to honestly consider your own prayer life. It may challenge you, but if you heed his encouragement, you will be greatly blessed. "Men ought always to pray." (Luke 18:1) "I will that men pray everywhere." (1 Timothy 2:1) JCRyleOnline.com GreatChristianResources.com… (mehr)

I read the free ebook edition published by Chapel Library. This edition includes a study guide questions a the end of each chapter and is formatted well. Definitely recommended: http://www.chapellibrary.org/book/ctpr/call-to-prayer,-a

I was surprised at how modern the english read for a book written over a century ago. I'd rank it as the #1 book I've read on prayer so far. Every chapter was solid but my favorite was probably the last chapter where he focuses on advice for Christians who do have some kind of prayer life (as opposed to none). I thought the specific points he drew out for improvement and things to be wary of were very insightful. If I had a short list of books I thought every Christian should read - this would probably be at the top.

The book drills home the importance of prayer. That's the whole point of it, do you pray?


It is not absolutely needful to salvation that a man should read the Bible. A man may have no learning, or be blind, and yet have Christ in his heart. It is not absolutely needful that a man should hear public preaching of the gospel. He may live where the gospel is no preached, or he may be bedridden, or deaf. But the same thing cannot be said about prayer. It is absolutely needful to salvation that a man should pray.

It's hard to imagine a more potent hour of reading to provoke prayer. Strongly recommended. ( )

The importance of: reverence and humility in prayer, of praying spiritually, of making prayer a regular business of life, of perseverance in prayer, of earnestness in prayer, of praying with faith, of boldness in prayer, of fullness in prayer, of particularity in prayer, of intercession in prayer, of thankfulness in prayer, and of watchfulness over your prayers. [24-32]
Quote (J C Ryle): "I can find that nobody will be saved by his prayers, but I cannot find that without prayer anybody will be saved."
Quote (J C Ryle): "A Habit of prayer is one of the surest marks of a true Christian."
Quote (J C Ryle): "Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer."
Quote (J C Ryle): "Diligence in prayer is the secret of eminent holiness."
Quote (J C Ryle): "Happiness does not depend on outward circumstances, but on the state of the heart."
Quote (J C Ryle): "Prayer is the simplest act in all religion. It is simply speaking to God."
Quote (J C Ryle): "Never think that time is wasted which is given to God."
Quote (J C Ryle): "Observe narrowly what friends and what employments leave your soul in the most spiritual frame, and most ready to speak with God. To those cleave and stick fast." ( )

Do you pray? Do you have a meaningful time of private prayer speaking with our Creator God at the beginning and end of each and every day? If you do, “A Call to Prayer” should be a great encouragement to you. If you don’t, you need to learn what Bishop Ryle (1816-1900) is teaching. There is not a single person I have ever met that would not benefit from reading this tract if read sincerely.

Ryle says ”… what is the best means of cheerfulness in such a world as this? How shall we get through this valley of tears with least pain? I know no better means than the regular, habitual practice of taking everything to God in prayer. This is the plain advice that the Bible gives, both in the Old Testament and the New... The only way to be really happy in such a world as this, is to be ever casting all our cares on God. It is trying to carry their own burdens which so often makes believers sad. If they will tell their troubles to God, he will enable them to bear them as easily as Samson did the gates of Gaza. If they are resolved to keep them to themselves, they will find one day that the very grasshopper is a burden... Oh that men would understand that happiness, does not depend on outward circumstances, but on the state of the heart”.

A Call to Prayer is a 32 page small pamphlet. Anyone who can read a book in English can read it. Everyone should read it. All can benefit from it.

Ryle tells us “In every journey there must be a first step. There must be a change from sitting still to moving forward… When does a man really take his first step in coming out from sin and the world? He does it in the day when he first prays with his heart”.

A Call to Prayer is available from booksellers, and is also readily available on the web in various formats, including at http://www.christbiblechurch.org/literature/prayer/A_Call_to_Prayer.pdf ( )
