In The Necessity of Prayer, Edward Bounds, a 20th century pastor and lawyer, explores how prayer is a vital part of the Christian believer's walk. Bounds' book, however, is not simply a list of prayers for one to work through, but also a study on the very nature of prayer from Biblical examples. He connects the essence of prayer to other parts of the Christian life, such as faith, hope, character and conduct. A rich resource for Christians to use to deepen and strengthen their prayer life.
