The Possibilities of Prayer are as vast as the promises of God and as limitless as God's power to fulfill those promises. In this eBook, one of eight books on prayer by E. M. Bounds, the author explores this great subject in sixteen chapters. "The Ministry of Prayer," "Prayer and the Promises," "Prayer - Its Possibilities," "Prayer - Its Wide Range," and "Prayer and Divine Providence" are a few of the chapter titles. "How vast," says Bounds,
"are the possibilities of prayer! How wide its reach! What great things are accomplished by this divinely appointed means of grace! It lays its hand on Almighty God and moves Him to do what He would not otherwise do if prayer was not offered. It brings things to pass which would never otherwise occur. The story of prayer is the story of great achievements. Prayer is a wonderful poser placed by Almighty God in the hands of His saints, which may be used to accomplish great purposes and to achieve unusual results."
Here is a book that will deeply impress readers with the opportunity to turn possibilities into actualities by bringing the needs of a dying world to the throne of Grace. Few authors write about prayer with the conviction and authority of E. M. Bounds.
One who knew this author personally testified that everything Bounds wrote was for the salvation of his readers. The weight, the gravity, the conviction with which E. M. Bounds speaks on prayer make this and all his books a treasure for those who want to know God as he did.
Edward McKendree (E. M.) Bounds (1835-1913) As a young adult, Bounds was ignited by a great revival, and left his legal practice to serve the Lord, becoming an ordained Methodist Episcopal preacher. Shocked by atrocities committed against his countrymen by the invading Union Army during the Civil War, Bounds peacefully refused to sign an oath of allegiance to the Union and was sent to prison, where he continued his ministry among the inmates. Eventually released and sent away, he became a Confederate chaplain on the front lines, praying for his men within sight of them as they fought. After a full year of intense public intercession from Bounds and the surviving men of Franklin, the demoralized town experienced revival. The tireless compassion of this man, who would spend hours each day in intercessory prayer, continued to the end of his life. W. H. Hodge, who was mostly responsible for the publication of E. M. Bounds' books, developed an intimate friendship with the prayer warrior: "At last," he said, "I have found a man that really prays. I shall never let him go. He drew me to him with hooks of steel."
