Devotional: "How vast are the possibilities of prayer!

"How vast are the possibilities of prayer! How wide is its reach! What great things are accomplished by this divinely appointed means of grace! It lays its hand on Almighty God and moves Him to do what He would not otherwise do if prayer was not offered. It brings things to pass which would never otherwise occur. The story of prayer is the story of great achievements. Prayer is a wonderful power placed by Almighty God in the hands of His saints, which may be used to accomplish great purposes and to achieve unusual results. Prayer reaches to everything, takes in all things great and small which are promised by God to the children of men. The only limits to prayer are the promises of God and His ability to fulfill those promises. 'Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it.'" ...EM Bounds image by Jim Trodel

Amen. and Amen.
One of my favorite authors on prayer. Foundational. If I remember right, his crucible was the Civil War.

One of my favorites too! For me a while back, his writings on prayer were instrumental in building and understanding my prayer life. There's a lot of stuff by him online, esp. at the Christian Classic Ethereal Library.
