Glenn Langohr has a purpose: he writes to shine a light inside our prison systems and to help others turn their lives around. 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."
The Necessity of Prayer and Faith: A Bible Study and Prayer Guideby E. M. Bounds
In The Necessity of Prayer, Edward Bounds, a 20th century pastor and lawyer, explores how prayer is a vital part of the Christian believer's walk. Bounds' book, however, is not simply a list of prayers for one to work through, but also a study on the very nature of prayer from Biblical examples. He connects the essence of prayer to other parts of the Christian life, such as faith, hope, character and conduct. A rich resource for Christians to use to deepen and strengthen their prayer life.
