#54 Top 100 Books The Necessity of Prayer E.M. Bounds
Consider the life of E.M. Bounds: The last seventeen years of his life he rose at 4:00 a.m. to pray daily for the cares of the world that were on his heart. He was a renowned lawyer at age 24, who then was called by the Lord. He volunteered as a chaplain in the Civil War and was held as a prisoner of war twice, one time for 1-½ years. He died in 1913 relatively unknown.
Since the apostles, no man besides E.M. Bounds has left such a rich inheritance of research and teaching into the life of prayer. Prayer was as natural to him as breathing. 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!
