Item Description...
"What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men men of prayer. from Chapter 1: Men of Prayer Needed Some Christians insist that 19th-century American pastor Edward M. Bounds offered a more profound understanding of prayer for modern believers than any other contemporary religious thinker. This classic book on personal communication with God explores how sincere prayer brings faith to life. It examines prayer, the great essential why a praying ministry will be successful prayer and devotion united an example of devotion the necessity of preparing the heart grace from the heart rather than the head and much more. Seekers of wisdom are sure to find words of truth in this inspirational volume. American Methodist minister and writer EDWARD McKENDREE BOUNDS (1835 1913) served as a chaplain in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. He wrote several best-selling books on prayer, including The Necessity of Prayer, Possibilities of Prayer, The Weapon of Prayer, and others. "

More About Edward M. Bounds

Edward M. Bounds Edward McKendree Bounds was trained and apprenticed as an attorney, but instead of pursuing a legal career, he entered the ministry in his early twenties. In 1859 he was ordained as pastor of the the Monticello Methodist Church in Missouri.

Bounds was a chaplain in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He was captured by the Union Army in Franklin, Tennessee and later released. After his release, he strove to build up the spiritual state of Franklin by starting weekly prayer sessions.

Bounds was an associate editor of the official Methodist newspaper, The Christian Advocate, and is best known for his numerous books on the subject of prayer.

"Edward McKendree Bounds did not merely pray well that he might write well about prayer. He prayed because the needs of the world were upon him. He prayed, for long years, upon subjects which the easy-going Christian rarely gives a thought, and for objects which men of less thought and faith are always ready to call impossible. From his solitary prayer-vigils, year by year, there arose teaching equaled by few men in modern Christian history. He wrote transcendently about prayer, because he was himself, transcendent in its practice.

"As breathing is a physical reality to us so prayer was a reality for Bounds. He took the command, 'Pray without ceasing' almost as literally as animate nature takes the law of the reflex nervous system, which controls our breathing." -Claude Chilton, Jr., in the Foreword to Necessity of Prayer .

Edward M. Bounds was born in 1835 and died in 1913.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great, challenging, and powerful  Oct 20, 2008
This book is not written in contemporary English but is more powerful than most new books that are out there on this subject. Don't read this book if you are not ready to devote much time to prayer. It is convicting. It is a classic. And it is good.
Power  Nov 5, 2007
Good book about how God uses praying men who are mighty in prayer.

God does not anoint plans, but praying men. Prayer is our mightiest weapon to use against the enemy.
Learn why prayer is good for you  Jul 3, 2007
This simple book (only around 50 pages long or so) is quite inspiring. In it, Mr. Bounds expounds upon not only the many different reasons why we should pray, but also that we are being called to pray. He reminds us of how essential prayer was to the fathers in the Old Testament and how much prayer centered in the lives of Jesus and his disciples. While this book is written for pastors and other preachers of the gospel, it's a good inspiration to anyone wanting to grow closer to God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. While I do not think anyone will literally "study" this book, I believe that reading it once or twice in our lifetimes would benefit us in more ways that we might imagine. Pray, pray, and then pray some more!
A compassionate call to pray  Apr 18, 2007
I have never read a book like this book about prayer with such an overwhelming weight, compelling exposition and reasoning in regard to why not only preachers, but christians should pray. What I mean by pray is one that is "...strongly into the heart and life as Christ's "strong crying and tears" did; must draw out the soul into an agony of desire as Paul's did; must be an inwrought fire and force like the "effectual, fervent prayer" of James; must be of that quality which, when put into the golden censer and incensed before God, works mighty spiritual throes and revolutions."(Ch.4)

I can not say I agree with everything Bounds said, but I can not help but be stricken with so many strong statements he made or quoted from the giants of Christianity in the past, among which are as follows (I have to restrain myself from revealing too much of the book):

- Preaching which kills is prayerless preaching. Without prayer the preacher creates death, and not life. The preacher who is feeble in prayer is feeble in life-giving forces. Professional praying there is and will be, but professional praying helps the preaching to its deadly work. Professional praying chills and kills both preaching and praying. Much of the lax devotion and lazy, irreverent attitudes in congregational praying are attributable to professional praying in the pulpit.(Ch.3)

- Prayer--secret fervent believing prayer--lies at the root of all personal godliness. A competent knowledge of the language where a missionary lives, a mild and winning temper, a heart given up to God in closet religion--these, these are the attainments which, more than all knowledge, or all other gifts, will fit us to become the instruments of God in the great work of human redemption. (Ch.4, quoted from Carey's brotherhood)

- Preachers who are great thinkers, great students must be the greatest of prayers, or else they will be the greatest of backsliders, heartless professionals, rationalistic, less than the least of preachers in God's estimate. (Ch.4)

- The character of our praying will determine the character of our preaching. (Ch.4)

- Prayer is humbling work. [1] It abases intellect and pride, [2]crucifies vainglory, and [3]signs our spiritual bankruptcy, and all these are hard for flesh and blood to bear. It is easier not to pray than to bear them. ...perhaps little praying is worse than no praying. Little praying is a kind of make-believe, a salve for the conscience, a farce and a delusion.(Ch.5)

- No ministry can succeed without much praying, and this praying must be fundamental, ever-abiding, ever-increasing. (Ch.6)

- A desire for God which cannot break the chains of sleep is a weak thing and will do but little good for God after it has indulged itself fully. The desire for God that keeps so far behind the devil and the world at the beginning of the day will never catch up. (Ch.9)

- "The leading defect in Christian ministers is want of a devotional habit." Richard Cecil (Ch.10)

- "I urge upon you communion with Christ a growing communion" -- Sam Rutherford (Ch.11)

- "All the minister's efforts will be vanity or worse than vanity if he have not unction." -- Richard Cecil (Ch.16)

- Apostolic praying was as taxing, toilsome, and imperative as apostolic preaching. They prayed mightily day and night to bring their people to the highest regions of faith and holiness. They prayed mightier still to hold them to this high spiritual altitude. The preacher who has never learned in the school of Christ the high and divine art of intercession for his people will never learn the art of preaching (Ch.17)

- "If I should neglect prayer but a single day, I should lose a great deal of the fire of faith." -- Martin Luther (Ch.20)

This is an unquestionably must read for Christians who long for sweet and growing communion with Christ and need some fuel and fire to do so.
A Magisterial Volume on Prayer  Feb 10, 2007
E.M. Bounds's brief work, "Power Through Prayer," is well-deserving of its recognition as a classic work on prayer. This ought to be required reading for pastors. My only hesitation, and the reason I rate it with 4 stars, is that it is rather difficult to hand it off to laypeople, so directed as it is to clergy. But if you are a pastor and have not read this work, it must be pushed to the top of your reading list (it can be read in one long evening of study).
