Author: Bounds, Edward M. (1835-1913)

prayer focus mostly on simply features of prayer. Edward Bounds takes a
different approach in Prayer and Praying Men by focusing on persons of prayer.
Bounds examines the lives of nine different biblical figures: Abraham, Moses,
Elijah, Hezekiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, Samuel, Daniel, and Paul. In his examination,
