"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 publisherâ€™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."
