A Treatise on Prayer, or, a Confession, and Declaration of Prayers Added Thereto, by John Knox, Minister of Christ's Most Sacred Evangel, Upon the Death of that Most Virtuous and Most Famous King, Edward VI, King of England, France and Ireland, in which Confession the said John Does Accuse No Less His Own Offences, Than the Offences of Others to be the Cause of the Away Taking of that Most Godly Prince, Now Reigning with Christ While We Abide Plagues for Our Unthankfulness 1553 ("King Edward VI died on 6 July 1553. Knox was in London at that time, and the reformer "received the afflicting tidings of his majesty's decease with becoming fortitude and resignation to the sovereign will of Heaven. The event did not meet him unprepared; he had long anticipated it, with its probable consequences. "Knox remained in London until the 19th of July when Mary was proclaimed queen. Immediately after this, he appears to have withdrawn from London and retired to the north of England, being justly apprehensive of the measures which might be pursued by the new government... The English government soon restored the popish religion; and after December 1553, Protestants were subject to prosecution as heretics. Knox was unable to preach without endangering himself and those who harboured him. Thus, at the urgent request of his friends, the reformer reluctantly withdrew from England, arriving in Dieppe in the beginning of March 1553-54. The Treatise on Prayer was first published in July 1554," writes Reed.)
Praying As Jesus Taught Us To Pray: Our Approach To
God by Greg Price
There is not a greater need in the church and in the lives of Christians than earnest, effectual prayer that brings glory to God and grace to God's people. We neglect prayer; we find it a burden and do not avail ourselves of this most powerful means of God's grace. To our shame, we would rather work and play than to make time every day for intimate communion with Jesus Christ through prayer. We have a form of godliness, but by our prayerlessness, we deny the power thereof when we relegate prayer to the backseat in our Christian life. Let us confess as sin our empty and vain exercise of merely going through the motions of prayer. Let us repent with shame and grief that we have demonstrated to the Lord how irrelevant Christ is to us by our prayerlessness and by our making excuses as to why we cannot spend time with Him in secret worship in the morning and the evening. We have no excuses, dear ones, for Christ has taught us to pray in His own Word. In fact, one of His own disciples was so moved upon observing Christ pray that he asked the Lord to teach them to pray (Luke 11:1). What does your prayer life reveal about your Christian life? Does it reveal an honesty and transparency before the Lord, or an obscuring and seeking to hide who you are from the God who sees all? Does it reveal that you view God as your servant to go and fetch whatever you want or think you need, or that you view God as the Most High King in whose holy presence you can only come due to the mercy of God extended to you through the perfect obedience and righteousness of Jesus Christ? Does it reveal that you are more concerned with yourself, or that you are more concerned with God's glory and honor? Dear children of God, we all need refresher courses in duties (and privileges) that we ought to know, but have forgotten or neglected. And so it is with the duty and privilege that is ours in prayer. Let us pray as Jesus taught us to pray.
"Pray in your family daily, that yours may be in the number of the families who call upon God."
"NOT TO PRAY IS A SIN MOST ODIOUS. O! why cease we then to call instantly to his mercy, having his commandment so to do? Above all our iniquities, we work manifest contempt and despising of him, when, by negligence, we delay to call for his gracious support. Whoso does call upon God obeys his will, and finds therein no small consolation, knowing nothing is more acceptable to his Majesty than humble obedience (Jer. 7:23)." - JOHN KNOX

Thy Will Be Done by Greg Price
A Pious and Elaborate Treatise Concerning
Prayer; and the Answer of Prayer (1745 edition)
"The clear and Scriptural ardency of his piety from this well-know treatise is apparent" wrote Burns, concerning this title (Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p.342. The publisher's preface notes that this was the mature work of one who had suffered much for Christ. They state it "is among his last works; which he wrote at the close of a long walk with God; and in exile; while he was in Holland about 20 years, from his banishment (Anno 1661) until he ended his days, and entered into the joy of the Lord... Moreover the gentleman, now a minister, who procured this practical treatise of prayer, in Holland, and brought it home, can attest that it is genuine; and though many pieces on the subject be come abroad before this, yet the intelligent Reader may find it is inferior to none, and in some respects, preferable to any of them." Sample chapters include: "The greatness of the sin of neglecting prayer, manifested, in 39 particulars;" "The Unregenerate are obliged to pray;" "The necessity and usefulness of family prayer, manifested:" "Some encouragements to prayer mentioned;" and much more. 308 pages.

I received it (the Puritan Hard Drive - ed.) yesterday and am blown away by it!
It is simple to set up and there is a tremendous amount of material available that will last me for years as I go through it all.
The search tools are, by themselves, well worth the price of the Puritan Hard Drive. It makes finding authors, topics and documents incredibly easy and fast. (The speed itself is amazing!) I also find the ability to copy from any of the (searchable - ed.) PDFs and paste into whatever .doc I happen to have open to be extremely useful.
I'm also glad to see that there are audio sermons/teachings (MP3s - ed.), as well as WMVs (videos - ed.) from a variety of speakers and preachers as this provides a well-rounded approach to my own theology.
I've downloaded the entire drive to one of my computers that can handle it, and have it hooked up to a laptop.
The Puritan Hard Drive is a tremendous asset to my library and a huge time-saver for my own learning, preaching, teaching and counseling.
Thank you ever so much for doing this.
- Kevin Guillory (Pastor), Redeemer Christian Congregation (Baltimore, MD)
The Puritan Hard Drive reached me this morning and as soon as I installed it on my PC I was totally amazed at what it is able to do.
It is a tremendous blessing of God to have such a tool in my hands... the Puritan Hard Drive is a wonderful and powerful tool.
Now, I will be able to enjoy all the possibilities of this tremendous program.
You were right, it was worth the wait.
Thank you very much and congratulations to all your team.
Soli Deo Gloria!

Some Additional Customer Comments on SWRB's CD sets (Reformation, Calvinism, Protestant, Puritan).
"This collection of… CDs is a truly astounding accomplishment. There is nothing like this available to the ordinary Christian on the whole face of the earth. Now, for the first time ever, ordinary Christians can have direct and near effortless access to the very cream of Puritan and Reformed, as well as Covenanter, literature... What they used to say of the Puritan John Flavel's preaching, can be said of these CDs: they are 'hissing hot'! ... more" (emphases added).

"The greatest collection of classic Reformation resources on one CD set ever!"
"In reading this mornings mailing I noticed that you also do the Reformation Bookshelf CD's so I went to your web site to see what was out -- I was in ecstasy!!!"

Full SWRB CD comment from Dr. McMahon:
"I have been systematically working through reading the Puritan and Reformed CDs I purchased.
I must say, there is nothing like them available anywhere.
It is the most amazing collection of works I know of in one package to date.
In my opinion, it far surpasses Ages Software and their collections.*
The Puritan and Reformed material presented on these CDs is exceptional.
I am continually amazed at the depth and breadth of information in both collections, and the rarity of works that I now have at my fingertips.
You have done an immeasurable service for the Kingdom of Christ in making these CDs available, and every pastor and theologian should own them without question (they would be foolhardy to pass them by)."

* It is SWRB's opinion that Ages has done an excellent job in making various Reformed works available on CD, so much so that we also distribute a number of their CDs at discounts. Thus, please don't make more out of our publishing this comment than is warranted, as this is a comment we received from one of our customers and it expresses his opinion. As for Ages' work, we rejoice whenever the truth is published, whether through others or through SWRB (as we play only a very small part in the revival of classic Reformation, Puritan and Covenanter thought that is now taking place worldwide through God's marvelous grace). The publication of the best Reformers and Puritans of the past is one of the greatest needs of our time, as this extends the blessings that come through faithful preachers and authors into our day and into the future. Lord willing, the growth in the publishing of faithful works from the past will help stem the tide of the great declension and unfaithfulness which we are now witnessing all around us, even (sadly) among many churches that still call themselves "Presbyterian" and/or "Reformed." So please pray together with us that our Lord will multiple the number of faithful publishers and publications, and that He will give many the heart to stand for the truth no matter the consequences (as He has done for our faithful forefathers, who resisted Satan and sin unto blood and even to martyrdom in many cases). -- RB.
"SWRB's Puritan and Reformation CD libraries are an invaluable source for the study of the history and theology of classic Reformation theology. The collection is remarkable not only for depth of content, but also for the rarity of many of the works. Most seminary libraries will not have even a percentage of the works available on these CD-ROMs. I cannot imagine anyone working in Reformation / historical theology that would not want to use the Puritan and Reformed libraries!"

"I just received your CD collection. One bit of advice: you should instruct your customers to take about 1 week off just to peruse the tables of contents for these CD's, followed by another week off, in order to recover from the state of shock in which they will find themselves.
In all seriousness, this collection is almost impossible to describe. It has to be seen to be believed. As a pastor, my library has just increased dramatically. As a Ph.D. student in Puritan and Post-Reformation studies, I have immediate access to many of the same works for which I would normally need to access through rare book rooms of theological libraries.
Thank you for this labor of love. Thank you for making it accessible, both financially and technologically. May the Lord richly bless you for this service to his people."
for the faith,
Pastor David Owen Filson

"You all are doing a wonderful service by making all these materials so readily available. Having them on my hard drive is BETTER than having access to a rare book library with all of them in hand... I have found the CD set invaluable as a tool of scholarship. So once again I commend you brothers for making it available."

"It's been several weeks now since I received the CDs and have had some time to digest some of them. All I can say is, "WOW!" This is truly a library like no other, and has already paid great dividends not only in my own personal worship and study, but in my teaching as well. I first balked at the price, but after seeing the vastness of the material, I almost feel as though I'm robbing you!
I pray that the Lord will allow you to get these materials into the hands of as many ministers as possible."

Full SWRB CD comment from Dr. Moore:
This collection of 62 CDs is a truly astounding accomplishment. There is nothing like this available to the ordinary Christian on the whole face of the earth.
Now, for the first time ever, ordinary Christians can have direct and near effortless access to the very cream of Puritan and Reformed, as well as Covenanter, literature.
These books are often in fascinating first editions and many are electronically linked and indexed for the first time. The ordinary Christian may here dig into a simply staggering wealth of literature, from devotional and sermonic material to technical and scholarly works. Even in the days of the Long Reformation itself ordinary Christians didn't get to see this kind of library -- most couldn't read for a start, and even those who could, would never have been able to afford to buy even a hundredth part of the material on these CDs. Truly we are without excuse!
And the significance of this collection goes even beyond that. No longer do we have to wait for modern Reformed publishing houses to predict that a particular Reformation or Puritan book will be sufficiently popular to make it economical to reprint, or to deem it "safe" enough to be let loose on the modern evangelical church. Rather, we are now able to see for ourselves the whole range of the Puritan and Reformed publishing enterprise, including views that are usually suppressed by most modern devotees of "Puritan" piety!
Buy these CDs while you can, and find out for yourself what the First and Second Reformations were really all about! You'll be truly amazed, and, by God's grace, will grow from being an ordinary Christian to being an extraordinary one. What they used to say of the Puritan John Flavel's preaching, can be said of these CDs: they are "hissing hot"!

"This side of eternity I'll never be able to repay the favor you have done mankind by bringing these... CDs together.
The first week of reading I grew more as a Christian reading those rich, pure Gospel Commentators than I have in 18 years of Christian life. After reading some of the Puritan CDs I have to get the Reformation set if it kills me. A fire is burning within me. These... CDs are liable to start a revival fire unseen in any generation... the Gospel in its pure form is seen in these... CDs.
Sir, I cant say enough. What a treasure! I'll never be able to repay you this side of heaven, but when we get there I am sure you will see the rich fruits of your labor. God bless you for not being money hungry but wanting to see Christians grow in the Lord... I love you even though we have never met, you have helped me in my Christian walk tremendously with these... CDs.
I am not bragging on the flesh, I am just giving honor where honor is due. The Holy Ghost will take these CDs and light a fire unseen and unheard of. God bless you all at Still Waters."
- Email from the USA
"Thank you so very much for the CDs.
I am amazed at the quality and quantity of the literature...
I cannot imagine any other single thing being done by any man or group of men in the earth today that is of such extensive, present, and enduring value as this CD work is.
God be praised that he uses sickly and weak men to forward his kingdom, that the work may not be mistaken to be wrought by the might of men, but by his Spirit. His strength is perfected in weakness."
