The Power of Prayer Devotional is a collection of messages from the manuscripts of Edward M. Bounds. For every day of the year, Scripture verse is followed by a meditation from the author and ends with a powerful prayer. The cover is constructed of quality man-made material imported from Italy, with the look and feel of real leather (trade name LuxLeather). Design features include an embossed and top-stitched cover with debossed and gold foiled title, an attached ribbon page marker and a presentation page for gift-giving.
Edward M. Bounds was born in 1835. He studied deeply in the Scriptures and was greatly inspired by the writings of John Wesley. At the age of twenty-four, he felt called to be a preacher and became pastor of a small Methodist congregation in Monticello, Missouri. His writings have been described as "unfailing wells for a lifetime of spiritual water-drawing." He is best known for his books on prayer.
