idea where to start with Intercessory Prayer. This book presented
facts I hadn't known and exactly where and how to start. My prayers
are improving! Mr. Sheets even has sample prayers that you can start with until you develop your own. The annointing is on this man and his prayer style! I recommend this book to any Beginner
Prayer Warrior and Seasoned ones.
I will be able to deliver more prayerful messages to my group of intercessors, in a way that all will enjoy the privilege of their Ministry of Prayer.
Most of this book I found awesome. The author points out beautifully that prayer and intercession should be all about friendship, relationship and partnering with God, that what we pray should be motivated and arise out of love for God - not out of motivation to get something, nor out of feeling of obligation or sacrifice, but out of love - and under the guidance of God's love, looking at the world through the eyes of love. We are the instruments through which love and power of God express, and we should be a pure channels through which that love flows.
The author is also pointing out that while some things may happen of their own accord and we don't have to ask for them, that we are instructed to pray and ask for what we want.
He shares many stories from the Scripture, as well as from his experience and from other people's experiences, and the stories themselves are worth getting this book. There are stories about problems that people had simply because they didn't ask that those problems be solved. There are also stories where even though people were told that the problem was solved in spirit, they still had to ask for it before they experienced it.
Praying and asking may take different forms. In this book, the author has offered prayers after each chapter, and they are a good starting point. The stories the author shared also have examples of what people prayed for to resolve the problematic issue and the miraculous results their prayers produced. You'll find all kinds of wonderful stories of miraculous healings and of protection - truly inspiring.
