The Complete Works of E. M. Bounds on Prayer
Edward McKendree Bounds
E. M. Bounds was a Methodist Pastor around the time of the American Civil War. At the age of 58, and for the next nineteen years (till he went home to be with the Lord at age 77), he started and continued to write books. The rest of his time was spent in intercessory prayer and in an itinerant revival ministry. It is said that he prayed daily from 4 A.M. to 7 A.M. before he would begin work on his writings.
E. M. Bounds was born in Missouri in 1835. He studied deeply in the scriptures, and was greatly inspired by the writings of John Wesley. At the age of twenty-four he felt called to be a preacher, and became pastor of a small Methodist congregation in Monticello, Missouri.
In 1861 he was arrested by Union troops, and held with other non-combatants in a Federal prison for a year and a half. Released after a year and a half in a prisoner trade, he became a Chaplain with the Confederacy. After the war, he became Associate Editor of the Christian Advocate. This was the official weekly paper for the entire Methodist Episcopal Church. _______________

"These books are unfailing wells for a life-time of spiritual water-drawing. They are hidden treasures, wrought in the darkness of dawn and the heat of the noon on the anvil of experience, and beaten into wondrous form by the mighty stroke of the divine. They are living voices whereby he, being dead, yet speaketh!

Inspiring Christians to Become Prayer Warriors
For almost a century Edward McKendree Bounds' books on prayer have been classic works, stimulating and inspiring Christians to become prayer warriors. A forceful writer and very deep thinker, Bounds spent the last seventeen years of his life reading, writing, and praying. He rose at 4 A.M. daily for many years, and was indefatigable in his study of the Bible.
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.
...he was able to capture the essence of prayer...
Because Bounds so diligently practiced what he preached, he was able to capture the essence of prayer, and his works live on to call today's Christians to higher discipleship and an energetic prayer life.
...the intense spirit and clear challenges of this Godly man who lived to pray and write about prayer.
