How to really accomplish something through prayer

The men of olden times who wrought well in prayer, who brought the largest things to pass, who moved God to do great things, were those who were entirely given over to God in their praying. God wants, and must have, all that there is in man in answering his prayers. He must have whole-hearted men through whom to work out His purposes and plans concerning men. God must have men in their entirety. No double-minded man need apply. No vacillating man can be used. No man with a divided allegiance to God, and the world and self, can do the praying that is needed. Source: The Essentials of Prayer, by E. M. Bounds. Found through the Christian Classics Ethereal Library, here. Public Domain.

God help me to live up to that.

I have attempted, for several years, to post something devotional on Sundays. For 2012, I plan to begin with posts copied (it's public domain, and I can't say it nearly as well as Bounds did) from the book indicated.

Thanks for reading.
