E.M. Bounds Quotes

E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer is the outstretched arms of the child for the Father’s help.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The Word of God is the fulcrum upon which the lever of prayer is placed, and by which things are mightily moved.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “It is the effectual, fervent prayer that influences God.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Luther said: “If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use – men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men – men of prayer.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Whitfield once thus prayed, “O Lord, give me souls or take my soul.” After much closet pleading, “he once went to the Devil’s fair and took more than a thousand souls out of the paw of the lion in a single day.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The value of prayer does not lie in the number of prayers, or the length of prayers, but its value is found in the great truth that we are privileged by our relations to God to unburden our desires and make our requests known to God, and He will relieve by granting our petitions.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “God must help man by prayer. He who does not pray, therefore, robs himself of God’s help and places God where He cannot help man.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “To pray is the greatest thing we can do: and to do it well there must be calmness, time, and deliberation; otherwise it is degraded into the littlest and meanest of things. True praying has the largest results for good; and poor praying, the least. We cannot do too much of real praying; we cannot do too little of the sham. We must learn anew the worth of prayer, enter anew the school of prayer. There is nothing which it takes more time to learn. – The Power of Prayer.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Around us is a world lost in sin, above us is a God willing and able to save; it is ours to build the bridge that links heaven and earth, and prayer is the mighty instrument that does the work.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer is the keynote of the most sanctified life, of the holiest ministry. He does the most for God who is the highest skilled in prayer.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Nothing is well done without prayer for the simple reason that it leaves God out of the account.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Men are God’s method. The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “If prayer puts God to work on earth, then, by the same token, prayerlessness rules God out of the world’s affairs, and prevents Him from working. And if prayer moves God to work in this world’s affairs, then prayerlessness excludes God from everything concerning men, and leaves man on earth the mere creature of circumstances, at the mercy of blind fate or without help of any kind from God.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “When we calmly reflect upon the fact that the progress of our Lord’s Kingdom is dependent upon prayer, it is sad to think that we give so little time to the holy exercise.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “ABOVE ALL things, cultivate your own spirit. A word spoken by you when your conscience is clear and your heart full of God’s Spirit is worth ten thousand words spoken in unbelief and sin.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer must be aflame. Its ardour must consume. Prayer without fervour is as a sun without light or heat, or as a flower without beauty or fragrance. A soul devoted to God is a fervent soul, and prayer is the creature of that flame. He only can truly pray who is all aglow for holiness, for God, and for heaven.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “God is vitally concerned that men should pray. Men are bettered by prayer, and the world is bettered by praying. God does His best work for the world through prayer. God’s greatest glory and man’s highest good are secured by prayer. Prayer forms the godliest men and makes the godliest world.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer – secret fervent believing prayer – lies at the root of all personal godliness.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The goal of prayer is the ear of God,” a goal that can only be reached by patient and continued and continuous waiting upon Him, pouring out our heart to Him and permitting Him to speak to us.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Blessed is that home which has in it an altar of sacrifice and of prayer, where daily thanksgivings ascend to heaven and where morning and night praying is done.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer is the channel through which all good flows from God to man, and all good from men to men.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Preaching is not the performance of an hour. It is the outflow of a life.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The preacher must be surrendered to God in the holiest devotion. He is not a professional man, his ministry is not a profession; it is a divine institution, a divine devotion. He is devoted to God. His aim, aspirations, ambition are for God and to God, and to such prayer is as essential as food is to life.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Thanksgiving is oral, positive, active. It is the giving out of something to God. Thanksgiving comes out into the open. Gratitude is secret, silent, negative, passive, not showing its being till expressed in praise and thanksgiving. Gratitude is felt in the heart. Thanksgiving is the expression of that inward feeling.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Short devotions are the bane of deep piety. Calmness, grasp, strength, are never the companions of hurry. Short devotions deplete spiritual vigor, arrest spiritual progress, sap spiritual foundations, blight the root and bloom of spiritual life. They are the prolific source of backsliding, the sure indication of a superficial piety; they deceive, blight, rot the seed, and impoverish the soil.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Faith is the first, the foundation stone. Faith builds on Jesus Christ. Here faith is the foundation on which the whole spiritual building is reared. A foundation will do no good and will be ruined if no house is built on it The snow, the rain, the dew, the frost, the air, the sunshine, the breeze, will dissolve a foundation of adamant if no house be built on it On faith’s foundation, by all diligence, the spiritual superstructure must be reared.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “God’s conquering days are when the saints have given themselves to mightiest prayer.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “You can do more than pray after you have prayed,” said the godly Dr. A. J. Gordon, “but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “God commands men to pray, and so not to pray is plain disobedience to an imperative command of Almighty God.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The deeper the desire, the stronger the prayer. Without desire, prayer is a meaningless mumble of words.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer is the creator as well as the channel of devotion. The spirit of devotion is the spirit of prayer. Prayer and devotion are united as soul and body are united, as life and the heart are united. There is no real prayer without devotion, no devotion without prayer.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Hearty, heroic, compassionate, fearless martyrs must the men be who take hold of and shape a generation for God.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Luther said: “To have prayed well is to have studied well.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer was the secret of His power, the law of His life, the inspiration of His toil and the source of His wealth, His joy, His communion and His strength.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The lazy man does not, will not, cannot pray, for prayer demands energy. Paul calls it a striving, an agony.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Few Christians have anything but a vague idea of the power of prayer; fewer still have any experience of that power. The Church seems almost wholly unaware of the power God puts into her hand; this spiritual carte blanche on the infinite resources of God’s wisdom and power is rarely, if ever, used – never used to the full measure of honouring God.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The dispensation of the Holy Spirit is a dispensation of prayer, in a preeminent sense.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “When we pray, “Give us this day our daily bread,” we are, in a measure, shutting tomorrow out of our prayer. We do not live in tomorrow but in today. We do not seek tomorrow’s grace or tomorrow’s bread. They thrive best, and get most out of life, who live in the living present. They pray best who pray for today’s needs, not for tomorrow’s, which may render our prayers unnecessary and redundant by not existing at all!”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “There is an important principle of prayer found in some of the miracles of Christ. It is the progressive nature of the answer to prayer. Not at once does God always give the full answer to prayer, but rather progressively, step by step.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “When we calmly reflect upon the fact that the progress of our Lord’s Kingdom is dependent upon prayer, it is sad to think that we give so little time to the holy exercise. Everything depends upon prayer, and yet we neglect it not only to our own spiritual hurt but also to the delay and injury of our Lord’s cause upon the earth.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Faith must be definite, specific; an unqualified, unmistakable request for the things asked for. It is not to be a vague, indefinite, shadowy thing; it must be something more than an abstract belief in God’s willingness and ability to do for us. It is to be a definite, specific, asking for, and expecting the things for which we ask.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The strongest one in Christ’s kingdom is he who is the best knocker. The secret of success in Christ’s Kingdom is the ability to pray. The one who can wield the power of prayer is the strong one, the holy one in Christ’s Kingdom. The most important lesson we can learn is how to pray.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “We must remember that the goal of prayer is the ear of God. Unless that is gained the prayer has utterly failed.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “To have God thus near is to enter the holy of holies – to breathe the fragrance of the heavenly air, to walk in Eden’s delightful gardens. Nothing but prayer can bring God and man into this happy communion.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Prayer for the preacher avails just as prayer by the preacher avails. Two things are always factors in the life and work of a true preacher: First when he prays constantly, fervently and persistently for those to whom he preaches; and secondly, when those to whom he ministers pray for their preacher.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “We have emphasized sermon-preparation until we have lost sight of the important thing to be prepared – the heart. A prepared heart is much better than a prepared sermon. A prepared heart will make a prepared sermon.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “Satan is always at church before the preacher is in the pulpit or a member is in the pew. He comes to hinder the sower, to impoverish the soil, or to corrupt the seed. He uses these tactics only when courage and faith are in the pulpit, and zeal and prayer are in the pew; but if dead ritualism or live liberalism are in the pulpit, he does not attend, because they are no danger to him.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “A school to teach preachers how to pray, as God counts praying, would be more beneficial to true piety, true worship, and true preaching than all theological schools.”
E.M. Bounds Quote: “The preacher is commissioned to pray as well as to preach. His mission is incomplete if he does not do both well.”
