Purpose in Prayer

by Edward M. Bounds

Summary

Purpose in Prayer is another treasure from Edward Bounds on prayer. Bounds, an admired spiritual guide, describes the purpose behind prayer and not simply the purpose of prayer. He focuses on an individual's purpose in prayer; for one can understand the purpose of prayer, but not see the purpose in one's own prayers. Thus, Bounds attempts to encourage believers to not simply see the purpose of prayer, but to see that purpose in their own personal, private prayers. Throughout, Bounds frequently quotes other Christian thinkers, adding support and insight into his points about prayer. Composed of twelve short chapters, Purpose in Prayer is a rewarding book on prayer.
