Let us Pray (by Watchman Nee)

'Let us Pray' is a fairly short book by Watchman Nee, a Chinese Christian who was eventually imprisoned for his faith. The theme is that prayer is hard work - we shouldn't take it for granted, we should take it seriously. He makes some good points, but I felt they were a bit over-worked and long-winded, and some of his ideas rather over the top with what seemed an exaggerated emphasis on spiritual warfare in even the most minor of situations.

I was a bit disappointed, really. Perhaps it's the translator that made this book seem stilted in places and rambling, but I expected more of it.
