More About Edward M. Bounds


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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Power Through Prayer?

A Magisterial Volume on Prayer  Feb 10, 2007
E.M. Bounds's brief work, "Power Through Prayer," is well-deserving of its recognition as a classic work on prayer. This ought to be required reading for pastors. My only hesitation, and the reason I rate it with 4 stars, is that it is rather difficult to hand it off to laypeople, so directed as it is to clergy. But if you are a pastor and have not read this work, it must be pushed to the top of your reading list (it can be read in one long evening of study).
 
A Christian classic that I highly recommend to all believers  Nov 10, 2005
Edward McKendree Bounds (1835-1913), was a mighty man of God, a Methodist minister and devotional writer. Born in Shelby Country, Missouri, he first became a lawyer, but after the American Civil War he became a minister for the Methodist Episcopal Church. Rev. Bounds is most remembered today for his "Spiritual Life Books," all of which were written in the last seventeen years of his life, after a lifetime of serving God and his fellow man.

This wonderful book was written by Rev. Bounds as advice to the preacher, and in it he tells the reader why prayer is important, how to pray, and what it means. But, don't get the idea that this is a philosophical work directed at learned readers. Instead, this book is wonderful advice on prayer that will inform and convict any Christian reader.

Indeed, I must say that Rev. Bounds really knew what he was talking about. The book is very readable, and I found myself convicted by what he had to say. This is a great book on prayer, one that I would recommend for any and every preacher, and also any and every other Christian. This is a Christian classic that I highly recommend to all believers.

By the way, here's a great quote from Power Through Prayer: "What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use-men of prayer, men mighty in prayer." As true today as the day it was written!
 
A Book Not For The Weak Kneed   Jul 31, 2005
E.M. Bounds books are very convicting. In fact, few writers can touch a saints heart like E.M. Bounds. His words (while over 100 years old) are still full of truth. Without a doubt Bounds writes as a man with a passion for Jesus Christ who knows that power truly only comes through prayer.

In our "modern" era it is often the duty of leaders in the church to look more like business CEO's rather than biblical servants of Christ. Churches "hire" men based on their resumes rather than their brokeness and their humility nor are they much concerned with their prayer lives. Bounds attacks this false Christianity head on. He shows that power comes through prayer. Much head knowledge is no substitute, says Bounds, to a dynamic prayer life. If we are to preach Christ, we must pray!

While popular preachers such as Osteen, Warren, Stanley, and others sell books full of milk - Bounds books don't sell because of their truth. The "purpose driven" church knows nothing of what Bounds writes and never will until we learn the lesson of Isaiah 31:1 and then we will pray (Luke 18:1). Read this book and weep.
 
The most powerful little book ever written!  Nov 16, 2004
I wish I could give this book 10 stars. E.M. Bounds wrote a book on prayer, and the result was a little book of timeless dynamite that goes straight for the jugular.

If this book doesn't drop you to your knees, nothing will. I've read a few books on prayer by such titans as Watchman Nee and Andrew Murray, but this book is certainly THE ultimate. Bounds was a Civil War chaplain and a Methodist preacher back in the 1800's -- the "old school days" when holiness was the standard and the Glory of the Lord filled the meetings. This, simply, is a book on prayer by a praying man who spent a lifetime on his knees before the Lord.

Bounds had a great way of laying tremendous spiritual truths into short, third grade level sentences. Quick reading (only 120 pages), but you'll want to read it over and over again to soak up all the glorious treasures. You'll spend a lifetime musing over them, incorporating the truths into your time spent alone with God. Bounds doesn't teach you how to pray, but the book's guaranteed to get you on your knees where Jesus will.

This has got to be the all-time classic on prayer, period. I can't imagine a more powerful, concise, or influential treatise on the subject. It's the best there is. Every line is inspired, not one sentence is wasted or superfluous. The book is worth over ten thousand dollars, but most Christian book stores have it in their bargain bin for under five bucks. God is so awesome!

Take advantage of this blessing and get the book! Your prayer life will be changed forever as you get closer and closer to Jesus.
 
Powerful Book on Powerful Praying!  Jun 24, 2004
While Bounds has written a classic on how important prayer is for the pastor, the layperson can also learn much about prayer.

Among the important points covered include:

1. God is looking for better men and prayer is the preacher's most powerful weapon.
2. Powerful prayer and powerful preaching are inseparably linked.
3. For great preachers, God is the center of their attention and prayer is the road to God.
4. Keep God first in your morning thoughts.
5. Holy character is formed by real and powerful praying.
6. He who has prayed well also studies well.
7. God can work wonders when He can find suitable people.

Read and enjoy this classic and be encouraged to be a more powerful person of prayer!
