Necessity and Power of Prayer
By St. Alphonsus Ligouri
This is a brief 2 chapter work by Catholic author St. Alphonsus Ligouri on the necessity and power of prayer. Warning: His view is typically Catholic, invoking the Virgin Mary, Saints, etc, although he apparently sees little value some of that.
