"Nothing distinguishes the children of God so clearly and strongly as prayer. It is the one infallible mark and test of being a Christian. Christian people are prayerful, the worldly-minded, prayerless. It is the outward and upward flow of the inward life toward its original fountain. It is an assertion of the soul's paternity, a claiming of the sonship, which links man to the Eternal. It has everything to do with enriching, broadening and maturing the soul's experience of God. That man cannot possibly be called a Christian, who does not pray. By no possible pretext can he claim any right to the term, nor its implied significance. If he do not pray, he is a sinner, pure and simple, for prayer is the only way in which the soul of man can enter into fellowship and communion with the Source of all Christlike spirit and energy."

"These pages are packed with Scripture's encouragements to pray - from someone who in his time had been lawyer, soldier, pastor and writer... yet who firmly believed that the unseen service of prayer excels in power and effectiveness every human activity there has ever been." From the forward by Richard Bewes OBE

About E M Bounds:

EDWARD MCKENDREE BOUNDS, born in rural Missouri in 1835, was originally apprenticed as a lawyer but in his early twenties he felt called to the ministry. Ordained in 1859 as pastor of the Monticello, Missouri Methodist Church, he became a chaplain during the Civil War and was taken captive during the first battle of Franklin, Tennessee. After the war he returned to war-ravaged Franklin to help rebuild it spiritually. He held weekly prayer sessions that sometimes lasted several hours - these led to revival and brought his name to national prominence. He combined an itinerant preaching ministry with being associate editor of the official Methodist newspaper, the Christian Advocate until he died in 1913.
