A Classic on Prayer

“E.M.Bounds (1835-1913), a Methodist minister and Civil War chaplain, who devoted the last 17 years of his life to intense intercession and to penning his most perennially popular works on prayer, once said, ‘God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed in death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God’s heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world.’

The book is actually a compilation of his eight books covering every aspect on the singular theme “Prayer”, namely,

1. Necessity of Prayerem bounds
2. The Essentials of Prayer
3. The Possibilities of Prayer
4. The Reality of Prayer
5. The Purpose in Prayer
6. The Weapon of Prayer
7. Power Through Prayer
8. Prayer and Praying Men

All the books are a gold mine for Christians. (Amazon Reviewer)”

 

Quote from E.M. Bounds:

Prayer honors God, acknowledges His being, exalts His power, adores His providence, secures His aid.
God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. They outlive the lives of those who uttered them.
Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still. He will never talk well and with real success to men for God who has not learned well how to talk to God for men.
Preaching is not the performance of an hour. It is the outflow of a life.
Prayer opens an outlet for the promises, removes the hindrances in the way of their execution, puts them into working order, and secures their gracious ends. More than this, prayer like faith, obtains promises, enlarges their operation, and adds to the measure of their results.
