Possessing the Gates of the Enemy,: A Training Man Jan 24, 2007
I highly recommend this book for all leaders,intercessors/prayer warriors.
A must have for intercessors Aug 18, 2006
I loved this book! It provided me with so much information and it was an on time blessing for our intercessory ministry. I love to read but this book takes time to digest and is a way to help equip yourself as a prayer warrior. I recommend reading this book along with Dutch Sheet's The beginner's guide to intercessory prayer. We need more prayer warriors like Cindy Jacobs on the front lines praying without ceasing...
Don't lay there and take it anymore! Mar 13, 2006
You need this book!! Here is your chance to learn from someone else's journey. Just because many have been blind to the fact that there has been a hellish strategy set for a hostile takeover of our lives and that of those we love doesn't mean it isn't happening every second and every minute of every day. Arm yourselves!
Shaky Biblical Foundations For Prayer Apr 9, 2005
Most books today being released on prayer and particularly intercessory prayer seem to lean toward a charismatic slant and feel. This is certainly the case with POSSESSING THE GATES OF THE ENEMY. I love to read books on prayer from the works of great prayer warriors like E.M. Bounds to modern books such as FRESH WIND, FRESH FIRE by Jim Cymbala. I bought this book hoping for much of the same insights and pointers to help me build my faith in prayer. This was sadly not the case.
The book, like other charismatic prayer books, tends to share many examples of answers to prayers, miracles, etc. instead of wrestling with the Scriptures on prayer (for this see Paul Cedar's THE PRAYER LIFE and David Jeremiah's THE PRAYER ADVERNTURE). The book doesn't have the impact of conviction over neglect of prayer as say the works of Leonard Ravenhill or A.W. Tozer. The book spends too much time on the experiences of prayer rather then preparing the pray-er for prayer.
The irony is that the best chapter in the book is entitled "Flaky Intercessors" in which Jacobs deals with the bizarre elements often seen in intercessory prayer. She obviously is refering to much of the charismatic intercessors for I know of biblical intercessors here in the USA and abroad who pray with fire, passion, and yet remain firmly committed to sound doctrine and practices (1 Timothy 4:16). The book as a whole, I felt fits best into flaky intercessors hands rather than a disciple of Jesus (Luke 11:1-13).
Let me end with a positive however. I enjoyed Jacobs heart to see the Church praying with a true hunger for God. This is the cry I believe we need! While I might not agree with 100% of the book, the book is well worth reading to spark a desire to pray. For those of you who disagree with me, I simply say let's get on our faces and pray! Let's pray with faith (Mark 11:22-25) and with the power of the Spirit (Romans 8:26,27; Jude 20). Mighty things take place when God's people pray!
Wonderful for intercessors! Jan 23, 2004
I always had a heart for prayer. But, recently, my prayer life was moving to a more intense level. I had "urges" to pray for different situations and people. I didn't understand this and prayed to God for understanding. I knew of Cindy Jacobs as a intercessor and decided to read information about her books on this site. I bought this book first based on the recommendations. To my surprise, and I am not a fast reader, I thought this was a fast read. There was so much information, I plan to read again. Jacobs scripturely backs her chapters in the book. I plan to do my own study in the Word starting with her scripture references. This book has, perhaps, helped me to understand a "calling" and teaches me weapons to use in intercession. Great Book! Thanks!
