2007-January 31-REFLECTION~ Charles Branum, my associate in 1965, gave me E.M Bounds on prayer. Bounds wrote with passion. His words were penned early in the last century. They left an indelible impression on my heart and mind..

“What the church needs today is not more machinery ( technology) or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use…..men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men…men of prayer.”

“Never was there greater need for saintly men and women; more imperative still is the call for saintly, God devoted preachers. The world moves with gigantic strides. Satan has his hold and rule on the world, and labors to make all its movements subserve his ends. Religion must do its best work, present its most attractive and (near)perfect models.”

And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” (II Tim. 2:2)
