Someone today recommended a book called 'Prayer: The Real Battle' to me. They said they had only read the first chapter and already they feel utterly humbled and challenged.
Here are the words from the first page:
'The Book of Acts is filled with prayer meetings; every forward thrust the first church made was immersed in prayer. Take another look at the church at Pentecost. They prayed ten days and preached ten minutes and three thousand were saved. Today we pray ten minutes and preach ten days and are ecstatic if anyone is saved'
It's an Open Door publication and is only £2 and 48 pages long.
