E.M. Bounds is well known as one of the preeminent, and certainly one of the most prolific authors on the topic of prayer. Power Through Prayer is an audio production of one of his classic works, which while brief (50 pages in print-form, 2.5 hours of audio) is deeply convicting.Bounds writes mainly to pastors, opening each of his brief 20 chapters with a quotation from a great man of faith, followed by his own musings on the importance that a rich prayer life has on the fruits of ones ministry. Though geared towards the pastoral implications of a dry or rich prayer life, Bounds applications can easily be transferred to the life, ministry, and fruit of any believer.Focusing on the internal spiritual life of pastors, Bounds points out that academic study, charismatic delivery, theological know-how, and a wide variety of other pastoral skills are absolutely no substitute for communion with God. He rightfully points out that reliance on any of these outward abilities will result in a dead ministry. While it may be popular, it will lack the truly life-giving quality that draws members of the body closer to their Lord.Hovel Audios narrator Doren Elias (Doren is a man, just thought Id clarify as his is an unusual name) speaks with a warm, rich voice that handles Bounds rich text skillfully. Though brief, this audio book is well worth listening to multiple times, as it is so full of practical insight on the importance and power of prayer on life.
