The following prayers are drawn from the largely forgotten deposit of the Puritan Movement of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  They testify to the richness and color of evangelical thought and language, as well as their devotion to the Savior.  They can be found in a book titled “The Valley of Vision”, by Arthur Bennet.  I have included them in this blog so that others can use them in their own prayer life as a springboard to a more faithful walk with Jesus.   These prayers are 200-400 years old!  They were written in old English. but that should not get in the way if you don’t let it.
