Reviews - What do customers think about Intercessors?
A refreshing perspective on intercession. Jun 19, 2006
I've read lots of books on prayer--I was to the point where I thought there was nothing new to say! But, fortunately, I was wrong. Alves approaches intercession as a God-given burden that can best be fulfilled by alignment with the personality of the Intercessor. Just be myself. I don't have to be "Praying Hyde" or "Amy Carmichael." I just need to be me, and pray according to my burdens. Glory to God.
Intercessors has set me free! Aug 12, 2001
I just finished this book and I can't rave enough about it! I finally understand that I don't have to sit and pray for 2 hours every day to be powerful in prayer. I highly recommend this book. It's a must for people who struggle with prayer.
Prayer is FUN - stand in the gap! Aug 8, 2001
Did you ever go to a prayer meeting and where happy when you could finally go home again? Actually, you always knew that you were not an intercessor but just wanted to make sure? Or did you think that prayer is a must because the bible says that we should pray without ceasing but you where not really enjoying it? Then this book was written for YOU! Through this book I found out that there are many kinds of intercessors. To intercede actually means to stand in the gap for someone. The authors (I had the honour to experience Tommi and Beth life) give vivid examples from the bible and from their lives. There are list intercessors (a favourite among pastors) like Ezra, government intercessors like Daniel, prophetic intercessors like Moses, mercy intercessors like Jeremiah, crisis intercessors like David (see Psalms), etc. What are you? I learnt from this book that there is not a pure kind. But every time we get on our prayer bones (knees) we might be the one kind or another kind, maybe a combination. Where is your passion when you pray? Itýs all right when we spend most of the time weeping tears of identification for the lost. Another day we might do warfare intercession. When we come together, only TOGETHER we pray the heart of God. Only if we all contribute we will have His whole heart; someone brings a list, another tears, another a song, etc. Prayer is FUN, stand in the gap!
Finding the proper armor May 3, 2001
So many of us pray without knowing what our strengths. As Dutch Sheets states in the preface, we are going from defining to refining and assigning in these last days of the church before the warrior-bride is called home. If you know how to fit yourself for battle and focus as the authors call us to do, you can use your best armor to withstand satan's arrows while doing battle in prayer for another. This book is an automatic followup to Dutch Sheets' book on Intercessory Prayer and was a "don't lay down until I finish it" type of book. It strengthens any Christian who would read it in their prayer life. We may even use it for a women's ministry study!
