Item description for Essentials Of Prayer, The (Christian Heritage Classics: The Twentieth Century) by Edward M. Bounds...
Overview E.M. Bounds' classics on prayer have been continuously in print for over 100 years. "Prayer has to do with the entire man. Prayer takes in man in his whole being, mind, soul and body. It takes the whole man to pray, and prayer affects the entire man in its gracious results... The whole man must be given to God in praying. ... God wants, and must have, all that there is in man in answering his prayers. He must have whole-hearted men through whom to work out His purposes and plans concerning men. God must have men in their entirety. No double-minded man need apply. No vacillating man can be used. No man with a divided allegiance to God, and the world, and self, can do the praying that is needed. Holiness is wholeness, and so God wants holy men, men whole-hearted and true, for His service and for the work of praying... These are the sort of men God wants for leaders of the hosts of Israel, and these are the kind out of which the praying class is formed." E.M. Bounds Subjects covered in this book: Prayer takes in the whole man Prayer and humility Prayer and devotion Prayer Praise and Thanksgiving Prayer and trouble Prayer and God's work Prayer and Consecration Prayer and a definite religious standard Prayer and compassion Concerted prayer The universality of prayer Prayer and missions

More About Edward M. Bounds
Edward McKendree Bounds was trained and apprenticed as an attorney, but instead of pursuing a legal career, he entered the ministry in his early twenties. In 1859 he was ordained as pastor of the the Monticello Methodist Church in Missouri.
Bounds was a chaplain in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He was captured by the Union Army in Franklin, Tennessee and later released. After his release, he strove to build up the spiritual state of Franklin by starting weekly prayer sessions.
Bounds was an associate editor of the official Methodist newspaper, The Christian Advocate, and is best known for his numerous books on the subject of prayer.
"Edward McKendree Bounds did not merely pray well that he might write well about prayer. He prayed because the needs of the world were upon him. He prayed, for long years, upon subjects which the easy-going Christian rarely gives a thought, and for objects which men of less thought and faith are always ready to call impossible. From his solitary prayer-vigils, year by year, there arose teaching equaled by few men in modern Christian history. He wrote transcendently about prayer, because he was himself, transcendent in its practice.
"As breathing is a physical reality to us so prayer was a reality for Bounds. He took the command, 'Pray without ceasing' almost as literally as animate nature takes the law of the reflex nervous system, which controls our breathing." -Claude Chilton, Jr., in the Foreword to Necessity of Prayer .
Edward M. Bounds was born in 1835 and died in 1913.
