Mar 26, Victoria Lynn rated it really liked it Shelves: christian-walk-books. I am all fired up after reading this! So inspired to again fight the good fight in prayer. I think every Christian should read this. In the beginning it was a little difficult to get into it, but after I hit chapter 2 I was so into it I finished the rest in one day.

Chapter 5 was incredibly enlightening and encouraging in light of the fact that "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places" The only reason that I knocked half a star was because of a few comments that were made in the book that I don't necessarily agree with.
Those two being that prayers made not according to God's will have little to no value in the kingdom. Personally, I think God cares about every thing in our lives, big or small. The other statement that I was confused about was this. I also don't know if these things were just statements that were lost in translation because this book was translated from Chinese or if those were Watchman Nee's actual thoughts. But again, overall this book was a great read, one I will turn to again and again and I am so thankful that I randomly pulled it off the shelf.

That said, the opening meditation on the idea that God waits to do his will until we pray for it is worth the whole book. Not surprisingly, the Communist Chinese thought him a threat to their new state. He was arrested in and spent the last twenty years of his life at hard labor. The circumstances of his death prompt many to suspect he was murdered. Despite that seemingly narrow life, Watchman Nee influenced Christians around the world. His worlds are still popular and often quoted as received wisdom. His work came to my attention in the s.
Then I found his style dense and hard to follow, perhaps due to my poor preparation or the translation because now I find his writing clear and compelling. Mar 05, Reid rated it really liked it Shelves: spiritual-disciplines. I have greatly respected Watchman Nee for his discipline and his commitment to live in a manner that glorifies God.

Sold out. This small volume was an encouragement to me that will help me in my prayer life. He has lots of ideas about prayer, apparently from personal experience: - Prayer is a mystery; it is working together with God; it is speaking out of the mouth of the believer, the will of God; it is our will standing on God's side. Praying according to God's will and praying only for His will is indeed a self-denying work.

- Let us pray?
Unless we are completely weaned from ourselves, having not the slightest interest of our own, but living absolutely for the Lord and seeking only His glory, we will not like what He likes, nor seeks what He seeks, nor pray what He wants us to pray. Without doubt, to work for God with no self- interest, is very difficult; but the pray for Him without any self-interest is even harder May 20, Erica Bonner rated it it was amazing.
If you are looking for a deeper meaning and understanding into prayer, this is your book. The way he presents the principles is very interesting. All the points refer back to the Bible as well. I listened to each chapter a couple times. Each word was so intentional and I really wanted to understand it. May 28, Jonathan rated it liked it. However, I recommend not taking Nee's scriptural interpretation and theology at face value. Read with a careful and discerning attitude, always going to the bible and reading his quotes in the context of the larger passage.
For example, in the first chapter he quotes Isaiah He is awaiting our commands.
The KJV translation is misleading on its own, but when you read the passage in its context, you can see that God is not telling us to command him, but rather God is clearly saying that it is not our place to question or command him. This egregious error compelled me to double check all of his scriptural usage, which I believe is always a good thing when reading.
Regardless, there are good principles to carry away, but please read very carefully. Jan 15, whichwaydidshego? Honestly, for most of this small book I largely disagreed. So much so that I wrote all sorts of arguments spelling out said disagreements in the margins. Somehow that kept me wanting to read it - waiting to see how next I'd be annoyed enough to spell it out.
Oremus, Let Us Pray
However, toward the end I found some real gems of wisdom. Not only that, these gems spoke to what I've been facing in the last few years giving me a new and important perspective.

So much so that I feel I might begin to be free of much of the worst of it. So in the end I'm pleased to have persevered to read through it.

Jan 30, Aaron Cliff rated it liked it Shelves: doctrinal-in-nature , mysticism , re-read. Nee's assertions are very counter cultural, currently. The rise of Calvinism in the protestant mindset, at least in college, smarts very strongly against Nee's stance of "God only works when man bids him to work through prayer. I struggle to reconcile this with the attack Nee's assertions are very counter cultural, currently. I struggle to reconcile this with the attacks of the Assyrians against the Israelite's which were ordained and worked by God.
I doubt anyone was praying for those attacks, even the prophets who were speaking that it was to happen. I love Nee and this has influenced my overall rating of the book. Not his best exegetically but it does make you desire to get down on your knees and pray, which is I'm sure what he would have wanted. A Spiritual Match This book was an excellent read! The author explains the reason, the types of prayer and how to do it physically and by the scriptures. It truly educated me and the motivation gained is similar to a match-fire starter.
To say I am stoked to pray is an understatement. I'm grateful that I've been blessed to have read this book by this author. Thank you Watchman Nee. Decent Foundational Principles Pray consistently, fervently, and with empathy for others. Pray from faith and for God's glory. Pray for God's will to be done in specific ways, for we do not have because we do not ask. God loves to bring us along the journey and include us in His works.
