A Treasury of Prayer: The Best of E.M Bounds ~ Compiled by Leonard Ravenhill.

“Prayer is a solemn service due to God, an adoration, a worship, an approach to God for some request, the presenting of some desire, the expression of some need to Him, who supplies all need, and who satisfies all desires; who, as a father, finds His greatest pleasure in relieving the wants and granting the desires of His children. Prayer is the child’s request, not to the winds, nor to the world, but to the Father. Prayer is the outstretched arms of the child for the Father’s help. Prayer is the child’s cry calling to the Father’s ear, the Father’s heart, and to the Father’s ability, which the Father is to hear, the Father is to feel, and which the Father is to relieve.”

E. M. Bounds, one of the most prolific and powerful writers on prayer said, “Men and women are needed whose prayers will give to the world the utmost power of God; who will make His promises to blossom with rich and full results. God is waiting to hear us and challenges us to bring Him to do this thing by our praying.” A Treasury of Prayer is the best of seven books on prayer by E. M. Bounds in a single volume. Pursue prayer “with an energy that never tires, a persistency which will not be denied, and a courage that never fails.”
