Purpose in Prayer, another treasure from Edward Bounds on prayer, shows how prayer is the Christian's lifeline to God. Through prayer, lives truly are changed for eternity. E. M. Bounds knew the secrets of prayer and God's principles for supplying all needs. In Purpose of Prayer, Bounds shares many of his most cherished teachings on the life of prayer, which is the only effective barrier against the powers of evil so prevalent in this present world. In the words of Bounds, “The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil everywhere. Prayer, in one phase of its operation, is a disinfectant and a preventive. It purifies the air; it destroys the contagion of evil. Prayer is no fitful, shortlived thing. It is no voice crying unheard and unheeded in the silence. It is a voice which goes into God’s ear, and it lives as long as God’s ear is open to holy pleas, as long as God’s heart is alive to holy things.”

From the Back Cover:

The prayer of faith is the one force that can turn your life into a testimony of God¿s divine power. In fact, it is the only power in the universe that can change the purposes of God and bring victory to the Christian life. Even so, it is a power that is too infrequently used.
E. M. Bounds encourages every believer to open a ¿vista of infinite resource and possibility¿ by living a life of purposeful prayer. He explains how you can:

? Have the assurance of God¿s answer, every time you pray!
? See the results of your prayers!
? Obtain all that God has for you!
? Obtain your inheritance and all that is Christ¿s!
? Do all things by God¿s aid!
? Know what to pray for!
? Grow in the likeness of Christ!
? Overcome the obstructions to daily prayer and meditation!
? Live in perfect love!

The success and power of the Christian life depend on our ability to pray. Discover how you can be on the forefront of what God is doing and how you can become a living witness to others. The secret is prayer!

About the Author:

Edward McKendree (E. M.) Bounds, a Methodist minister and devotional writer, born in Shelby County, Missouri in 1835. After studying law, he was admitted to the bar at the age of twenty-one years. After practicing law for three years, Bounds began preaching for the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. At the time of his pastorate at Brunswick, Missouri, war was declared, and he was made a prisoner of war for refusing to take the oath of allegiance to the Federal Government. After release he served as chaplain of the Fifth Missouri regiment [for the Confederate Army] until the close of the war. At that time he was captured and held as prisoner at Nashville, Tennessee. After the war ended, Bounds served as pastor of churches in Tennessee, Alabama, and St. Louis, Missouri. He spent the last seventeen years of his life with his family in Washington, Georgia, writing his 'Spiritual Life Books.'
