About the author (2012)

E. M. (Edward McKendree) Bounds (1835–1913) has given us a powerful legacy of prayer, believing it to be the strongest link between God and man. Bounds was a pastor and editor who spent many years reading, writing, praying, and taking part in revival ministry. Deeply concerned for the world, Bounds would rise at 4 a.m. to pray. Since the time of the apostles, no man besides Bounds has left such a rich inheritance of research into the life of prayer.
