Godly Prayer and Its Answers is an extended meditation upon Christ’s promise in John 14:13–14, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” However, in the process of touching upon everything stated and implied in the text, Brown produces a full and complete treatment of the doctrine of prayer in a manner calculated to promote the exercise of faith in Jesus Christ.
Author John Brown of Wamphray (c. 1610–1679) was a Scottish minister who was imprisoned for opposing episcopal rule and subsequently exiled to the Netherlands.
Endorsements “This volume on prayer richly rewards the thoughtful reader who perseveres through its older English, stepping back in time to sit under the ministry of this servant of Christ, the Scottish theologian John Brown of Wamphray. You will be significantly challenged, encouraged, and deepened in your communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and that, most certainly, is worth it.” — William VanDoodewaard, professor of church history, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
“Robert Murray M‘Cheyne once said, ‘You wish to humble a man? Ask him about his prayer life.’ Indeed, the question ‘How is your prayer life?’ can expose the sin of prayerlessness in our lives and increase the conviction in our hearts. Thankfully, there are many excellent books on prayer that can help us develop a healthy prayer life. One of those books is right here before you—Godly Prayer and Its Answers. This Christ-centered work, written by the seventeenth-century pastor theologian John Brown of Wamphray, is a biblical, practical, and thorough study of the doctrine of prayer. If your prayer life is weak, take time to read Brown’s book. With God’s blessing, it can definitely help and encourage you as you seek to experience a ‘sweet hour of prayer.’” — Brian G. Najapfour, pastor of Dutton United Reformed Church, Caledonia, Michigan, and author of Jonathan Edwards: His Doctrine of and Devotion to Prayer

Robert Traill’s treatment of Christ’s intercessory prayer for His people is a masterpiece of Puritan experiential doctrine. Mining the depths of John 17:24, Traill discovers the comforts of the doctrine of election, the blessing of our hope of heaven, and the believer’s delight in the glory of Christ—all founded on the immovable love of the Father for His Son. Traill’s exposition is full of practical application, careful to address both believers and unbelievers alike.
Author Robert Traill (1642–1716) was a Scottish Covenanter who later served congregations in England alongside his Puritan colleagues.
Endorsement “Robert Traill’s sermons on John 17:24 are vintage Puritan. They are theologically rich, yet accessible and filled with practical wisdom. They should be read thoughtfully, prayerfully, and expectantly by anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Christ’s priestly intercession and glory and what that means for the believer. They are especially suitable for those suffering through various trials. Indeed, Traill has a way of redirecting our thoughts from our earthly sorrows to Christ in heaven, where all our hopes are found. I highly and unreservedly recommend it.” — Randall J. Pederson, managing editor, Westminster Theological Journal, and coauthor of Meet the Puritans
