The strength of Puritan character and life lay in prayer and meditation. In this practice the spirit of prayer was regarded as of first importance and the best form of prayer, for living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality. Yet prayer is also vocal and may therefore on occasions be written. Consequently in the Puritan tradition there are many written prayers and meditations which constitute an important corpus of inspiring devotional literature. Too often ex tempore prayer lacks variety, order and definiteness. The reason for this lies partly in a neglect of due preparation. It is here that the care and scriptural thoroughness which others found necessary in their approach to God may be of help. This book has been prepared not to 'supply' prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before.

"That prayer is most likely to pierce heaven which first pierces one's own heart." 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. The Puritan combination of warm piety and careful intellect have fueled a renaissance of interest in their movement. This combination is on display in Piercing Heaven, a collection of carefully selected prayers from leading Puritans. The language in these prayers has been slightly updated for a modern audience while still retaining the elevated tone of the Puritans. With prayers from Richard Baxter, Thomas Brooks, John Owen, and many more, each prayer reminds us that heartfelt prayer is central to the Christian life.

The power of religion and godliness lives, thrives, or dies, as closet prayer lives, thrives, or dies.' This was the deeply held conviction of Thomas Brooks, the author of this book. A pastor who knew his people well, he feared that many Christians do not understand the 'necessity, excellency, and usefulness' of private prayer, and live in 'too great a neglect of this indispensable duty.' Focusing on our Lord's words about 'closet-prayer' in Matthew 6:6, Brooks supplies us with a masterful treatment of a vitally important aspect of the Christian's life. His aim is intensely practical: 'to preserve and keep up the power of religion and godliness both in men's houses, hearts, and lives.
