E.M. Bounds was truly a man of prayer. His wisdom on prayer was not just academic, but a life spent full of prayer. His daily 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. devotional life was well-known and strengthened his relationship with God. His writings have influenced generations, and few have written as powerful and Bible-centered books on prayer. E.M. Bounds is the author of many books on prayer including Prayer and Praying Men, The Necessity of Prayer, and The Purpose of Prayer.
Throughout his ministry, Bounds rose early every morning to pray for three hours. Out of this deep prayer experience, he could say, "Without prayer, the Christian life, robbed of its sweetness and beauty, becomes cold and formal, and dead; but in the secret place where God talks with His own, the Christian life grows into such a testimony of Divine power that all men will feel its influence and be touched by the warmth of its love...That, surely is the purpose of all real prayer and the end of all true service."
"Miraculous! From the Heart of God."
In The Necessity of Prayer, Edward Bounds, a 20th-century pastor and lawyer, explores how prayer is a vital part of the Christian believer's walk. Bounds' book, however, is not simply a list of prayers for one to work through, but also a study on the very nature of prayer from Biblical examples. He connects the essence of prayer to other parts of the Christian life, such as faith, hope, character, and conduct. This audiobook is a rich resource for Christians to use to deepen and strengthen their prayer life. Introduction by prayer warrior and author Glenn Langohr.
In a penetrating and forthright style, Edward M. Bounds offers stimulating advice to Christian servants. "The preaching that kills may have insight and grasp of principles, may be scholarly and critical in taste, may have every minutia of the derivation and grammar of the letter....and yet may be like a frost, a killing frost. Preaching which kills is prayerless preaching. Without prayer, the preacher creates death, and not life.

In any study of the principles, and procedure of prayer, of its activities and enterprises, first place, must, of necessity, be given to faith. It is the initial quality in the heart of any man who essays to talk to the Unseen. He must, out of sheer helplessness, stretch forth hands of faith. He must believe, where he cannot prove. In the ultimate issue, prayer is simply faith, claiming its natural yet marvelous prerogatives - faith taking possession of its illimitable inheritance. True godliness is just as true, steady, and persevering in the realm of faith as it is in the province of prayer. Moreover: when faith ceases to pray, it ceases to live. Faith does the impossible because it brings God to undertake for us, and nothing is impossible with God.
Great men of God in Scripture are the focus as E.M. Bounds demonstrates powerful lessons on the need for and art of effective prayer. Paul, Ezra, Moses and Daniel are only a few of the men he gives examples of. God's desire is for men to be on their knees in full subjection to Him. His life was devoted to praying 3 hours a day beginning at 4 a.m. in the morning. E.M. Bounds himself is a wonderful example of the power of a praying man.
