A House of Prayer by Travis Ripley

A House of Prayer by Travis Ripley – ISBN: 978-1-7921729-5-3 : “And Said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” We are either a house of prayer, or a den of thieves. Why is the contrast drawn between prayer and thieves? It is through prayer that God chooses to work in the earth. If we rob him of our prayers, then his purpose is hindered in...

Prayer Preparation and Patience

Prayer Preparation and Patience by George R Hawtin. Few there be among the earth’s millions who can say with truth, “I know myself, for the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked. Who can know it? Jer. 17:9. Man above all else is spirit. He is not body, soul, and spirit, but spirit, soul, and body. Thus in God’s word he is always defined. 1 Thess. 5:23. But man in the darkness of his understanding has chosen the visible things before the...

The Necessity of Prayer by E.M. Bounds

The Necessity of Prayer by E.M. Bounds: In any study of the principles and procedure of prayer, of its activities and enterprises, first place, must, of necessity, be given to faith. It is the initial quality in the heart of any man who essays to talk to the unseen. He must, out of sheer helplessness, stretch forth hands of faith. He must believe, where he cannot prove. In the ultimate issue, prayer is simply faith, claiming its natural yet marvelous...

The Reality of Prayer by E.M. Bounds

The Reality of Prayer by E.M. Bounds: It must never be forgotten that Almighty God rules this world. He is not an absentee God. His hand is ever on the throttle of human affairs. He is everywhere present in the concerns of time. “His eyes behold, his eyelids try the children of men.” He rules the world just as He rules the Church by prayer. This lesson needs to be emphasized, iterated and reiterated in the ears of men of modern...

Prayer and Praying Men by E.M. Bounds

Prayer and Praying Men by E.M. Bounds: To begin with, note the incident in Joshua 10, where the very heavenly bodies were made subject to prayer. A prolonged battle was on between the Israelites and their enemies, and when night was rapidly coming on, and it was discovered that a few more hours of daylight were needful to ensure victory for the Lord’s hosts, Joshua, that sturdy man of God, stepped into the breach, with prayer. The sun was too...

Purpose in Prayer by E.M. Bounds

Purpose in Prayer by E.M. Bounds: The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil everywhere. Prayer, in one phase of its operation, is a disinfectant and a preventive. It puri-fies the air; it destroys the contagion of evil. Prayer is no fitful, short-lived thing. It is no voice crying unheard and unheeded in the silence. It is a voice, which goes into God’s ear, and it lives as...

The Possibilities of Prayer by E.M. Bounds

The Possibilities of Prayer by E.M. Bounds: The ministry of prayer has been the peculiar distinction of all of God’s saints. This has been the secret of their power. The energy and the soul of their work has been the closet. The need of help outside of man being so great, man’s natural inability to always judge kindly, justly, and truly, and to act the Golden Rule, so prayer is enjoined by Christ to enable man to act in all...

The Weapon of Prayer by E.M. Bounds

The Weapon of Prayer by E.M. Bounds: “God’s great plan for the redemption of mankind is as much bound up to prayer for its prosperity and success as when the decree creating the movement was issued from the Father, bearing on its frontage the imperative, universal and eternal condition, “Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thy inheritance and the uttermost part of the earth for thy possession” Like what you are reading?

Power Through Prayer by E.M. Bounds

Power Through Prayer by E.M. Bounds: We are constantly on a stretch, if not on a strain, to devise new methods, new plans, new organisations to advance the Church and secure enlargement and efficiency for the gospel. This trend of the day has a tendency to lose sight of the man or sink the man in the plan or organisation. God’s plan is to make much of the man, far more of him than of anything else. Men are God’s...
