Product Description

What is more important than ministry? What is, in fact, the one thing that "puts God to work?" Prayer! In response to His children's prayers and petitions, God has promised to answer, to do, and to give us "all things whatsoever."

In Prayer Moves God E.M. Bounds expounds on God's need of people who pray. He explains:

  • Why prayer moves God to act
  • How busyness in church activities can hinder prayer
  • How the early apostles gave themselves to prayer
  • Why effective preaching depends on effective praying
  • Why we need to intercede for others
  • Why prayer is essential in God's kingdom

Inspring sketches of the prayer lives of dedicated Christians, such as David Brainerd, George Muller, and Jonathan Edwards are included. Learn how you, too, can prepare yourself for effective participation in the highest calling Christ has given the church - to advance God's kingdom through prayer.

Author Bio

Edward McKendree Bounds (1835-1913) was born on August 15, 1835, in a small northeastern Missouri town. He attended a one-room school in Shelbyville, where his father served as a county clerk, and he was admitted to the bar shortly before he reached the age of nineteen. An avid reader of the Scriptures and an ardent admirer of John Wesley's sermons, Bounds practiced law until the age of twenty-four, when he suddenly felt called to preach the Gospel. His first pastorate was in the nearby town of Monticello, Missouri. Yet, in 1861, while he was pastor of a Methodist Episcopal church in Brunswick, the Civil War began, and Bounds was arrested by Union troops and charged for sympathizing with the Confederacy. He was made a prisoner of war and was held for a year and a half before being transferred to Memphis, Tennessee, and finally securing his release.Armed only with an unquenchable desire to serve God, Bounds traveled nearly one hundred miles on foot to join General Pierce's command in Mississippi. Soon afterward he was made chaplain to the Confederate troops in Missouri. After the defeat of General John Hood's troops at Nashville, Tennessee, Bounds was again among those who were captured and held until swearing loyalty to the United States.After the war, Bounds pastored churches in Nashville, Tennessee; Selma, Alabama; and St. Louis, Missouri. It was in Selma that he met Emma Barnett, whom he later married in 1876, and with whom he had three children, one of whom died at the age of six. After Emma's death, in 1887, bounds married Emma's cousin, Harriet Barnett, who survived him. The family included their five children, as well as two daughters from his first marriage.While he was in St. Louis, Bounds accepted a position as associate editor for the regional Methodist journal, the . Then, after only nineteen months, he moved to Nashville to become the editor of the Christian Advocate, the weekly paper for the entire Methodist Episcopal denomination in the South. The final seventeen years of his life were spent with his family in Washington, Georgia, where both Emma and Harriet had grown up. Most of the time he spent reading, writing, and praying, but he often took an active part in revival ministry. Bounds was also in the habit of rising at four o'clock each morning in order to pray to God, for the great cares of the world were always upon his heart. He died on August 24, 1913, still relatively unknown to most of the Christian sphere.Since the time of the apostles, no man besides Edward McKendree Bounds has left such a rich inheritance of research into the life of prayer. Prayer was as natural to him as breathing the air. He made prayer first and foremost in his life because he knew it as the strongest link between man and God. In the time of E.M. Bounds, human weakness, through prayer, could access the power of the overcoming Son of God, Jesus Christ. The same is true to this day.

    I can only imagine if we put into practice the gift of prayer what a difference it would make in our lives and the lives of others. I think everyone in every church should read this book and let the Holy Spirit guide our prayer life. Excellent book.

    Re: The Weapon of PrayerI purchased this book nearly 10 years ago. It has been my constant companion.My husband is a Deacon and we travel a lot.Along with the bible I read it to him while he's driving.It has meant so much to us through the years.I've shared it with friends and family and everyone gives thanks and great reviews.I carry it in my purse all the time.It had become so frayed, I've been trying to find another one for the past 4 years. I even had others looking for it out of state. I was beside myself when I saw it in your catalog. I ordered 6 copies (1 for me and 5 for others). I purchased Prayer Moves God because it was by E.M. Bounds and I knew it had to be good.Additionally....It gives me a backup copy of THE WEAPON of PRAYER. Thanks for keeping the prices low enough for me to make these purchases.
