“You have in your hands a book in which Edward McKendree Bounds (1835–1915) attempts to plumb the depths of the pastor and preacher’s prayer life, and its power evidenced in the pulpit. Our dear brother shows us that effectual and fervent prayer is the art, the discipline, and the craft of pastors. It is our hallowed work by which we as shepherds must excel in above all other disciplines. In this reading, I have often come up gasping for air amidst the flood of truth contained in this precious volume. I pray the same degree of revelation and exhortation for you.”
—from the Foreword
Martin Luther spent his best three hours each day in prayer—and for good reason: he realized that prayer is the preacher’s mightiest weapon. Learn afresh the all-importance prayer plays in the life of the preacher, how prayer is a tremendous force in itself, how it gives life and force to all. More importantly, you will also discover that prayer is the hidden weapon of every preacher, and a praying preacher is a hidden weapon in the hand of God.
