PRE FACE.

The Author's Guide to the Perplexedhaving, by the blessing of God, proved a guide to many of that class, he is encouraged to address the prayerful who suspect that their prayers for mercy and grace are not answered.

He has seen, with some surprise and much sorrow, that not a few of the devotional seem to forget that the PROMISES of God to the prayerful, are, when applied to the heart by the Holy Spirit, the real answers to all prayer for spiritual blessings. The connexion between fervent prayer and saving faith, also, is not, he thinks, so familiar to the prayerful, as it ought to be. And, as mistakes on these and on similar points cannot but interrupt communion with God, the Author ventures to suggest the following simple hints, “to all that, in every place, call upon the name of Jesus Christ.
