Prayer In Progress by J. H. [John Howard] Churchill hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
Hodder & Stoughton, 1961, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: This is a book for those who believe in prayer and those who scarcely do so. Its text might be “Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief”. It could be called an experiment or a series of experiments in prayer. To be thorough, experiments must take both a wide view and a long one; so this book looks at prayer in relation to life, work, marriage, death, and describes a process from the crudest prayers to contemplation. It is offered to all sorts of people, technical and un-technical.
