James Richards, D. D., (1767-1843), a native of New Canaan, Connecticut. Educated at Yale college, he finished his preparation under the tutelage of Dr. Dwight. Richards was pastor of churches in New Jersey; was made moderator of the General Assembly in 1805, and chosen to a trustee of the College of New Jersey, and was a director of the Theological Seminary from its commencement. He was made Professor of Christian Theology in the seminary at Auburn, N.Y., in 1823, a position he held until his death.
This sermon examines the questions, I. What is the great end or design of prayer?; II. Wherein does the importance of this duty appear?; What are some of the characteristics of an acceptable prayer?; and, What is to be understood by the prayer of faith, and how far has God bound himself to hear and answer such prayer?
