Godly Prayer and Its Answers is an extended meditation upon Christ’s promise in John 14:13–14, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” However, in the process of touching upon everything stated and implied in the text, Brown produces a full and complete treatment of the doctrine of prayer in a manner calculated to promote the exercise of faith in Jesus Christ.

About the author
John Brown (c1610-1679), was a Covenanter minister of the church at Wamphray in Dumfriesshire, Scotland. He would later be imprisoned in Edinburgh for his Nonconformity in 1662 before being exiled to Holland. There the able theologian would serve the church, as well as support the church in Scotland for the remainder of his life. Walker reckons Brown to be the most important Theologian of Scotland at the time. His work on prayer, first published in 1720, was well received at the time and proved to be a blessing to many. Biblical and practical, it should be read and re-read by today's believers.

“This volume on prayer richly rewards the thoughtful reader who perseveres through its older English, stepping back in time to sit under the ministry of this servant of Christ, the Scottish theologian John Brown of Wamphray. You will be significantly challenged, encouraged, and deepened in your communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and that, most certainly, is worth it.” — William VanDoodewaard, professor of church history, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan 

“Robert Murray M‘Cheyne once said, ‘You wish to humble a man? Ask him about his prayer life.’ Indeed, the question ‘How is your prayer life?’ can expose the sin of prayerlessness in our lives and increase the conviction in our hearts. Thankfully, there are many excellent books on prayer that can help us develop a healthy prayer life. One of those books is right here before you—Godly Prayer and Its Answers. This Christ-centered work, written by the seventeenth-century pastor theologian John Brown of Wamphray, is a biblical, practical, and thorough study of the doctrine of prayer. If your prayer life is weak, take time to read Brown’s book. With God’s blessing, it can definitely help and encourage you as you seek to experience a ‘sweet hour of prayer.’”  — Brian G. Najapfour, pastor of Dutton United Reformed Church, Caledonia, Michigan, and author of Jonathan Edwards: His Doctrine of and Devotion to Prayer
