What to expect

Jesus said, "If ye shall ask anything in my name, that will I do."

"That," says E.M. Bounds, "is the Divine declaration, and it opens a vista of infinite resources and possibility."

Throughout his ministry, Bounds rose to pray at 4 a.m. and prayed until 7 a.m. Out of this deep prayer experience, he could say, "Without prayer, the Christian life, robbed of its sweetness and beauty, becomes cold and formal, and dead; but in the secret place where God talks with his own, the Christian life grows into such a testimony of Divine power that all men will feel its influence and be touched by the warmth of its loveā€¦That, surely is the purpose of all real prayer and the end of all true service."
