The Wonders of Prayer - A Record of Well Authenticated and Wonderful Answers to Prayer
by D. W. Whittle




Overview -
In this astounding collection, evangelist and educator D. W. Whittle records hundreds of examples of Christian prayers being successfully answered by God.

Dividing the answers of God into topics, this book recounts many anecdotes of answered prayers. Collected by the author over his years spent touring and speaking to Christians all around the United States, we are assured that the accounts provided are accurate and faithful to the truth. The believer's own words of a prayer answered are in some cases preserved, allowing us a personal and authentic look at the life they led before and answer the answer from the Lord occurred.

It is apparent when reading this book that God's assistance spans all manner of concerns. We witness occasions when the poor have met with sudden relief from their poverty, where addictions to tobacco and alcohol have suddenly been alleviated, and instances of God providing good weather for farmers and other people whose livelihood depends on favorable conditions.

The manner in which the help is rendered is shown to vary, too. On some occasions, the Lord sends a sign to a person which inspires a sudden idea and change of action. On others, He changes something within the person, instilling in them a better mood and outlook that they may achieve what they wish. Still others see Him bestow good fortune in the form of chance encounters, a sudden cessation of pain, or empowering the person to get through periods of adversity.

Together with showing us the good that honest prayer achieved for ordinary Americans, this book also serves as a historical document of its time. The 19th century was an era in which many Americans struggled with the realities of settling and living in a continent that remained only partway charted. On many occasions, particularly in the westernmost regions, the prayers ask for nothing but the most basic provisions of survival.

After completing his service in the American Civil War, Daniel Webster Whittle spent decades on evangelistic tours. He associating closely with his friend and fellow Christian author, Dwight Lyman Moody - indeed, it was Moody who first encouraged Whittle to enter upon evangelism as his life's work. Together the two believers encouraged many Christians with words, although Whittle is perhaps best known for writing over 200 hymns - several of the most popular examples are still sung in churches to this day.
