Original name: Preacher and Prayer. New, up to date and annotated edition.
"What the church wishes this day isn't really extra and higher equipment, no longer new agencies or extra leading edge tools, yet males whom the Holy Spirit can use – males of prayer, males robust in prayer. The Holy Spirit doesn't stream via tools, yet via males. He doesn't appear on equipment, yet on males. He doesn't anoint plans, yet males – males of prayer."
– E. M. Bounds
