Passion and Prayer – E.M. Bounds

Passion and Prayer

“Love is kindled in a flame, and zeal is its fuel. Flame is the air that true Christian experience breathes. It feeds on fire. It can withstand anything except a weak flame.

A lack of passion in prayer is a sure sign of the lack of depth and intensity of desire. To reduce fervor is to retire from God. He can and will pardon sin when the repentant one prays. Fire is the motivating power in prayer.

Religious principles that do not come out of the fire have neither force nor effect. Passion is the soul of prayer.”
– E.M. Bounds
