Let Us Pray, by Watchman Nee


Extremely underwhelming. Nee's theology of prayer is unsettling, and could be taken to diminish the sovereignty of God in this fallen world. His heavy focus on satan is also troubling, but perhaps not surprising given his very real experience of persecution and spiritual warfare. He is also prone to repetition. Lots and lots of repetition. Still, he believes passionately in the power and importance of prayer, and I can support that, even if I don't agree with his ideas about the role prayer plays in effecting the will of God.
