Prayer and Faith

I’m reading The Complete Works of E.M. Bounds on Prayer.  It is 8 books all wrapped up into 1.  Everytime I read a chapter I get under conviction for either my lack of faith or my lack of prayer.  Here’s quote that I really enjoyed:

“The possibilities of prayer are the possibilities of faith. Prayer and faith are Siamese twins. One heart animates them both.  Faith is always praying. Prayer is always believing.  Faith must have a tongue by which it can speak. Prayer is the tongue of faith.  Faith must receive. Prayer is the hand of faith stretched out to receive. Prayer must rise and soar. Faith must give prayer the wings to fly and soar.”
