Written by a conservative and intensely pietistic leader of the evangelical wing of the Church of Norway (Lutheran), it is improbable that it became a best seller, improbable that it is still read by so many...

"This book itself breathes the spirit of prayer...It is a book full of grace and mercy, jubilee and challenge.  In it I sense Jesus inviting us to the adventure."                       

 -Richard J. Foster (From the Foreword)

"Is your personal prayer life giving you problems?  Read this book.  It will clear your mind about your need for prayer and strengthen your will to do it.  Beyond all that, it will simply flood your soul with goodness and love of God.  I've been going back to Ole Hallesby's PRAYER for years and find it like listening to a symphony.  I don't know any book in any language that I can match his masterwork on this greatest of all subjects."

-Sherwood Eliot Wirt (Editor, Spiritual Witness: Classic Christian writings of the 20th Century) ________________________

Tell others about Jesus like O. Hallesby did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________________________
