About the Author

Glenn Langohr has a purpose: he writes to shine a light inside our prison systems and to help others turn their lives around. Edward McKendree (E. M.) Bounds (1835-1913) As a young adult, Bounds was ignited by a great revival, and left his legal practice to serve the Lord, becoming an ordained Methodist Episcopal preacher. Shocked by atrocities committed against his countrymen by the invading Union Army during the Civil War, Bounds peacefully refused to sign an oath of allegiance to the Union and was sent to prison, where he continued his ministry among the inmates. Eventually released and sent away, he became a Confederate chaplain on the front lines, praying for his men within sight of them as they fought. After a full year of intense public intercession from Bounds and the surviving men of Franklin, the demoralized town experienced revival. The tireless compassion of this man, who would spend hours each day in intercessory prayer, continued to the end of his life. W. H. Hodge, who was mostly responsible for the publication of E. M. Bounds' books, developed an intimate friendship with the prayer warrior: "At last," he said, "I have found a man that really prays. I shall never let him go. He drew me to him with hooks of steel." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essentials Of Prayer 1 April 2010
By Michael Taylor - Published on
"The Essentials Of Prayer" by E.M. Bounds focuses on the right attitudes for either individual or corporate prayer.

Some of the points covered include:

1. No person with a divided allegiance to God and the world can do the prayer that is needed.
2. Excellent points on humility.
3. Busy religious activity will not make up for an empty prayer life.
4. Trouble often drives people to prayer. Trouble is neither above God or beyond His control.
5. God works most effectively through holy people.
6. Many Christians are aimless because they have no pattern to follow for shaping their character and conduct.
7. In the lust for more church members, some churches have compromised on purity.
8. No sinner is barred from the mercy seat. All are welcomed to approach the throne of grace in time of need.
9. The key to missionary success is prayer.

Another excellent title by Bounds to approach prayer more seriously.

Highly recommended!
