Item description for Purpose in Prayer by Edward M. Bounds & Scott Harrison...
Overview Jesus said, "If ye shall ask anything in my name, that will I do." "That," says E.M. Bounds, "is the Divine declaration, and it opens a vista of infinite resources and possibility." Throughout his ministry, Bounds rose to pray at 4 a.m. and prayed until 7 a.m. Out of this deep prayer experience, he could say, "Without prayer, the Christian life, robbed of its sweetness and beauty, becomes cold and formal, and dead; but in the secret place where God talks with His own, the Christian life grows into such a testimony of Divine power that all men will feel its influence and be touched by the warmth of its love...That, surely is the purpose of all real prayer and the end of all true service."

More About Edward M. Bounds & Scott Harrison
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.

Prayer Purpose Sep 24, 2007
Good book about the purpose in prayer. Prayer moves the hand of God on our behalf. God shapes our world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better our world will be.
God wants us not to be slack in our prayers, but pray without ceasing. The secret of success in Christ's Kingdom is the ability to pray.
We should all do some praying! Nov 12, 2000
This book gave me more insight to the meaning of prayer. Prayer is based on faith - the desire, belief and expectancy. The author tell us about the energy of prayer, how and why we must be persistent in prayer, and the results that are possible due to prayer. You can create you own results (miracles) by praying (if you know how and why).
Even if you don't take time to read this book, at least learn to how / when to pray and learn what to expect. God wants to be our friend. He ask us to go to our secret place (inside) and talk with him. Who knows? You might see the miracles (results) in your life if you pray nonstop, giving thanks and praise and "asking (the right way) so you can receive (thy will be done)".
