The Weapon of Prayer

E M Bounds
Also Available In

There is a prodigal in all of us.

Welcome Home provides a graceful and hopeful look at the struggling, wayward child within all of us.

Welcome Home warns and warms the heart, as it not only chronicles the steady downward spiral from prosperity to the pig pen; but it also provides steps leading to full relationship restoration.

Then He said: "A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.' So he divided to them his livelihood. And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living" (Luke 15:11-13).

The story is filled with a lifetime full of lessons, warnings, encouragement, and most of all, hope for all those seeking to return home after experiencing failure and heartache.

"And the son said to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.' "But the father said to his servants...let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found...'" (Luke 15:21-24).

Combined with G. Campbell Morgan's classic The Parable of the Father's Heart, author David Ravenhill recasts the prodigal son story into 20th-century settings, citing parallels between the prodigals of yesterday and today.



A chaplain during the American Civil War, Edward M. Bounds was a prolific writer especially about the importance of prayer in Christian life. After being released as a prisoner of war, Bounds traveled the country as an itinerant pastor, bringing many to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
