Apostolic preaching cannot be carried on unless there be apostolic prayer. Men of God, before anything else, are indispensable to the furtherance of the kingdom of God on earth.
The Weapon of Prayer
God shapes the world by prayer.Edward Mckendree Bounds
In prayerful sympathy and love. Hold to the old truth -- double distilled.Edward Mckendree Bounds
Preachers are not sermon makers, but men makers and saint makers, and he only is well-trained for this business who has made himself a man and a saint. It is not great talents nor great learning nor great preachers that God needs, but men great in holiness, great in faith, great in love, great in fidelity, great for God - men always preaching by holy sermons in the pulpit, by holy lives out of it. These can mold a generation for God.Edward Mckendree Bounds
