Great warning and advice to preachers in that a prayerless preacher will have missed his calling or failed God. The outpouring of God's Spirit is predicated upon prayer and revival comes at the end of a season of real praying led by layman working in harmony with God.
Those working outside of ministry also have a responsibility to pray for the preacher. In fact, prayerlessness can hinder the success of his work. Toward the end are examples of God's great servants that were devoted to the ministry of prayer. This book will help you understand in a more solid way how God delights and requires our prayers and the necessity of prayer for a powerful life and God's movement.
It is not coincidental that great outpourings occurred in the past; rather it is a wake up call today to return to our First Love with a fervent heart. Many have settled into complacency expecting others to carry the brunt of prayer. In God's eyes it is not acceptable. Allow this book to stir within you a new or renewed fire that will change the atmosphere and circumstances around you.
It is in this writing that Chaplain Bounds goes beyond his traditional thesis of the Holy Spirit working through great men of prayer, to the more intimate explanation, necessity, and rallying, obviously through personal experience, of the depths and the realities of prayer. You can almost sense the smoke of battle on him as you read, like seeing the glory of God surrounding Moses from being in His presence.
Although a challenging read, as are most writings from the centuries beyond that require an adjustment to reading speed, the resulting navigation and reward are both encouraging and desiring, toward our own use of The Weapon of Prayer.
Don Carmichael, author, Warriors of Peace, Devotions for the Daily Battles of Life
As Christians we strive for a relationship with the Father. This can only be achieved through speaking to God. There is only one way to do this and that is through prayer.
Open up your communication lines and utilise the greatest weapon we have - Prayer - in your everyday lives. I loved the book and can only recommend that you read this as part of the schooling needed by Christians. Make the time - you won't regret it!
