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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Weapon Of Prayer?
AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE FOR CHRISTIANS!! Sep 1, 2004
THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN IN A SOMEWHAT DIFFICULT STYLE, BUT IT IS READABLE AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ITS RICH AND INSPIRING CONTENT. THE AUTHOR IS SOLID IN HIS UNDERSTANDING OF THE BIBLE AND THE PRAYER LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST. I WAS ENCOURAGED AFTER I READ THIS BOOK TO PURSUE PRAYER IN WAYS I HADN'T CONSIDERED BEFORE. AN EXCELLENT BOOK IF YOU CAN ADJUST TO THE WRITING STYLE.
Not very good.. Jan 5, 2004
I always hate doing this to my own brethren but I couldn't even get through the first chapter. Poorly written and confusing.
THE DEVIL WILL BEGIN TO TREMBLE IF YOU APPLY WHAT'S IN THIS Mar 17, 1999
ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS,"YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK". ITS A DEATH BLOW TO THE DEVIL. THE WORDS IN THIS BOOK AS AN ANOINTING ON EVERY WORD. THANK GOD FOR E.M. BOUNDS.
