From the Paper:

"In his first book ``Quite Talks on Prayer'', Gordon brings out the artistic power that prayer brings forth in the life of human beings. In his view, prayer is not a habit or a forced act rather it is an act that is stimulated by God's spirit. In this view, prayer is seen to exist naturally due to its divine source. Gordon takes the reader through prayer in various stages and settings of a believer's relationship with his/her creator. His words motivate, challenge, but at the same time encourage the reader and give him/her hope. Every believer has in him/her some spiritual power that is inactive.
"By reading Gordon's book, readers are able to get a divine perspective of the spiritual weapon of prayer. The readers get to discover the importance of prayer in their every day lives and how it can help them in conquering various situations that they may come across in their daily endeavors."
