Peter Taylor Forsyth, also known as P. T. Forsyth, (1848-1921) was a Scottish theologian, considered one of the most brilliant and insightful English-speaking theologians of the early twentieth century.
"It is difficult and even formidable thing to write on prayer, and one fears to touch the Ark," writes Forsyth.
"Perhaps no one ought to undertake it unless he has spent more toil in the practice of prayer than on its principle. But perhaps also the effort to look into its principle may be graciously regarded by Him who ever liveth to make intercession as itself a prayer to know better how to pray. All progress in prayer is an answer to prayer — our own or another's. And all true prayer promotes its own progress and increases our power to pray."
