‘A Simple Way to Pray’

LCMS President Matthew C. Harrison recently translated the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther's "A Simple Way to Pray," a brief, practical guide on prayer written for his barber and friend, Peter Beskendorf, in 1535. “Because there are so many unbiblical things said and written about prayer all about us, every Lutheran should have ‘A Simple Way to Pray’ and read it,” Harrison noted. “Luther’s little book on prayer will revolutionize your prayer life."
