- Prayer Request
Some people believe that prayer is simply a human invention, with no true substance. Not so, argues Edward Bounds in his powerful book The Reality of Prayer. There is a spiritual reality to prayer, he urges. Prayer brings us closer to God--both through God's answering of our prayers, and through our own character being changed by prayer. Bounds reinforces these points in the second half of his book, where he discusses Christ as both a teacher of prayer and as an example of prayer. Finally, Bounds ends his encouraging and enlightening discussion by explaining the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer. This interesting treatise attests to the true reality and power of prayer--another classic from Edward Bounds.
During the last 25 years of the nineteenth century and a score of years of the twentieth, there lived and died three great men of God whom I knew—men whom God has doubtless numbered among the foremost of His heavenly host. The first was Edward McKendree Bounds, author of this present volume and the other “Spiritual Life” Books. The second was Claud L. Chilton, minister for many years in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and a musical composer of religious music of considerable note. The third, Clement C. Cary, preacher and editor, lost his life in an automobile accident in 1922. The fourth was Dr. B. F. Haynes, minister, editor and author, who died in Nashville, in 1923.
What Dr. Thomas Goodwin, the Puritan, was to Strong, Arrowsmith and Sparstow; what John Wesley was to Whitefield, Fletcher and Clark, Bounds was to Chilton, Cary and Haynes. What David Brainerd’s Journal did for Cary, Martyn, McCheyne, Bounds’ books can do for thousands of God’s children. He was a man who lived ever on prayer ground. He walked and talked with the Lord. Prayer was the great weapon in his arsenal, his pathway to the Throne of Grace. None who read what he has written can fail of realising that Edward McKendree Bounds talked with God, as a man talketh to his friend.
