"Prayer, like faith, obtains promises, enlarges their operation, and adds to the measure of their results." - E. M. Bounds

"We cannot talk to God strongly when we have not lived for God strongly. The closet cannot be made holy to God when the life has not been holy to God." - E. M. Bounds

"If we would have God in the closet, God must have us out of the closet. There is no way of praying to God, but by living to God." - E. M. Bounds

"It is hard to wait and press and pray, and hear no voice, but stay till God answers." - E. M. Bounds

"Prayer is our most formidable weapon, the thing which makes all else we do efficient." - E. M. Bounds

"I feel it is far better to begin with God, to see His face first, to get my soul near Him before it is near another. In general it is best to have at least one hour alone with God before engaging in anything else." - E. M. Bounds

"Prayer puts God's work in his hands-and keeps it there." - E. M. Bounds

"God's willingness to answer our prayers exceeds our willingness to give good and necessary things to our children, just as far as God's ability, goodness and perfection exceed our infirmities and evil." - E. M. Bounds

"The possibilities of prayer are found in its allying itself with the purposes of God, for God's purposes and man's praying are the combination of all potent and omnipotent forces." - E. M. Bounds

"Other duties become pressing and absorbing and crowd our prayer. "Choked to death" would be the coroner's verdict in many cases of dead praying if an inquest could be secured on this dire, spiritual calamity." - E. M. Bounds

"Prayer is the easiest and hardest of all things; the simplest and the sublim-est; the weakest and the most powerful; its results lie outside the range of human possibilities-they are limited only by the omnipotence of God." - E. M. Bounds

"Trouble and prayer are closely related.... Trouble often drives men to God in prayer, while prayer is but the voice of men in trouble." - E. M. Bounds
