Publisher's Summary

Jesus said, "If ye shall ask anything in my name, that will I do."

"That," says E. M. Bounds, "is the Divine declaration, and it opens a vista of infinite resources and possibility."

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."

Incredibly Insightful!

I first read E.M. Bounds work about 25 years ago and it helped shape my prayer life. This book did not disappoint. in fact, it is so insightful that I just finished and am going to read it again. I just want to absorb everything in it. A must read for the serious believer looking for the source to unction and anointing from Almighty God.

Terrific read!

It’s heartbreaking to hear most people pray today. I’m usually left with the impression they are merely complaining to a God they don’t even know, gossiping to everyone within earshot, lecturing to someone, or giving God their to-do list, always in hopes of changing an unfavorable situation or someone other than themselves. Christ warned he road to heaven is narrow and few will find it. This little book can help people find it and secure some of the rewards that accompany the Kingdom!
