Be Still Jul 18, 2009
Debbie Przybylski's book, "Intercessors Arise" to me was twofold. Not only did she tell us the many ways we can improve our prayer life but she also gave us an excellent insight into being a missionary. I enjoyed the things she relayed to us that happened to her while traveling on this ship that made the Guiness World Records in 2007 as being the oldest floating passenger ship in the world, built in 1914. Her journey on this ship required much prayer not only individually but corporately. I guess one of my favorite things she relayed was how she told about her Bible being worn out and praying for a new one which someone handed to her the very next day. Debra tells us many ways we can improve our prayer life in this book and through her Personal Application capsules at the end of the chapters she helps us to practice these methods. This is not a book you can just sit down and read. This is study material. She has also incorporated excerpt material from some very well known men and women of God such as Henry and Richard Blackaby from "Experiencing God" and E.M. Bounds from "E.M. Bounds on Prayer". A person could actually take quite a few months working through this material if the Personal Application capsules are thoroughly followed. This is also excellent group study material. Prayer is something that many books have made very complex and also guilt ridden in my opinion. This book helps us to understand that it's about our relationship with God and not always what He can do for us but just "soaking" in His presence and actually waiting to hear from Him. I would recommend this to any church group for study as well as personal study. The chapters are not long but each one is packed with much to be meditated upon. Whether you have been praying for a long time or you are new to it you will find this helpful and encouraging.
Itn's Not A Book Jun 26, 2009
It's Not a Book
As I read Debbie Przybylski's latest book, Intercessors Arise (Navpress, 2008) my first reaction was not what I expected. A few chapters in, I was asking "Where is the fire? I'm interested in this subject. As a believer, I want a more dynamic prayer life. But this book is, well, uninteresting." I've heard the anecdotal stories before, and felt I should pray more than I do. However, I already know this stuff. The book was missing the proverbial trigger. Debbie didn't pull the trigger on how to make the reality she described a part of my life.
Debbie is the founder of Intercessors Arise International, and has spent decades on the mission field with Operation Mobilization. She's an acclaimed writer, and mentor, teaching on the subject of prayer and intercession across the globe. So her experiences suggests that she must know about prayer. Yet I spent half the book asking where is the fire? Where di I find the kind of life she is describing?
I would like to pat myself on the back and say "And then lights went off . . . " No, my final analysis of Debbie's book demands that I humble myself rather than disclose some grand revelation. Debbie's book will tell me the 5 points to a better prayer life. Intercession isn't a spectator sport that one can learn from the bleachers of Christian life. Indepth intercession like Debbie describes doesn't follow a formula. It is learned on one's knees, discovered through utter dependence on God.
Intercessors Arise is a manual to be poured over slowly. I recommend taking 2 or 3 months to digest and apply the lessons. This book can be a wonderful resource for a group of friends who seek to improve their prayer lives. Intercessors Arise is not and cannot be formulaic, as are many modern Christian titles. Intercession is not a formula where I insert currency and like a gum ball machine, God turns the crank and rewards me. From her deep experience Debbie describes that intercession require a person's commitment to their God - a broken open, unfaltering, humble-and-willing-to-wait for an answer commitment which is too often absent in today's modern church.
My confession is that I didn't get much from her book the first time through because I was looking for a formula. My own attitude and shallow expectations were the roadblock. Intercessors Arise is not a book. Rather it is a tried and proven field manual that encourages Christ followers to pray big, dream big, and then depend on an equally Big God. In response, God often starts by creating brokenness and dependency, a humbling process that creates intercession from self focused prayers.

God is amazing and this book draws you to Him, it is a book that will deepen your relationship with Jesus. Debbie's maturity, experiences and the Truth of the Word make this book a personal faith builder. The reader will be taught; but even more, will "want" to pray. With this wonderful challenge to interceed; we, as the one praying, are personally blessed in our own hearts. In addition, the amazing thing about intercession, there is blessing eternally for others, as intercession is Kingdom work.
