A New Book of
Puritan Prayers.

“That prayer is most likely to pierce heaven which first pierces one’s own heart.” —Thomas Watson

For the Puritans, prayer was neither casual nor dull. Their prayers were passionate affairs, from earnestly pleading for mercy to joyful praise. These rich expressions of deep Christian faith are a shining example of holy living. Piercing Heaven is a collection of carefully selected prayers from leading Puritans. With prayers from Richard Baxter, Thomas Brooks, John Owen, and many more, each entry reminds us that heartfelt prayer is central to the Christian life.
