Item description for Bridal Intercession: Authority in Prayer Through Intimacy With Jesus by Gary Wiens & Mike Bickle...
Overview Bridal Intercession is a book for such a time as this, approaching the topic of intercessory prayer from the perspective of the Church's place as the Bride of Christ. Rather than seeing prayer as an issue-oriented, anxiety-based exercise that produces fatigue, Gary Wiens presents prayer as joyful and romantic communion between the Lover and His Beloved. The approach is thoroughly biblical, utilizing the stories of God's relationship with His people as the foundation for the contemporary call to intercessory prayer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bridal Intercession: Authority in Prayer Through Intimacy With Jesus?
prayer that is enjoyable and powerful Mar 1, 2004
This book changed my perspective of intercessory prayer and equipped me to pray with joy and power, enjoying intimacy with God and growing in knowing Him more. Of the many books I have read on prayer, this one touched my heart most deeply. Gary exposes the lie behind anxiety-driven prayer and equips us through the Scripture to pray with a confidence and joy that releases the heart of the Father to a hurting world. Prayer that is powerful and enjoyable! I love it!
Makes me hear wedding bells Feb 29, 2004
I can sincerely claim that I have begged, borrowed or purchased well over 100 books on prayer since the beginning of the 1990s when God began to awaken me with a calling to intercession. I'm not claiming expertise in stating this, but simply to state that this book truly stands out among the best in my experience.
The vehement lovesickness for Jesus that Gary Wiens conveys in this book is contagious. I look for such voices who are venturing ahead into passionate abandonment and are beckoning back to us to follow them as they follow Christ. The author provides a number of biblical insights, recounting the scriptures and then sifting through them to offer us wonderful and impacting statements into both the Person of Christ and the ways of God.
If you are interested in prayer that is fanned by a heart that is ecstatic at being overtaken by Love personified, get this book.
Intimacy with God Feb 21, 2004
This book radically changed my perception of who I was to Jesus. I would pray, but not in confidence or authority and my prayer life suffered because of it. However, this book showed me my (undeserved) authority and gave me confidence in His presence that has overflowed into all areas of my life.
Bridal Intercession never mentions Daniel! Jun 25, 2003
I have read many prayer books, and this one is at the bottom of the list. The author does not believe in travailing or groaning in the spirit. He speaks against praying against spiritual strongholds over nations, and Daniel does all this when he weeps over Israel. The author should have mention Daniel chapter 9 on how he weeps over the sins of the nation and inturn tears down the spiritual stronghold. The one book that I recommend reading if you only read one intercession book is, "Father Forgive Us" by Jim W Goll.
The premier book on intercession Jan 23, 2002
I have been a Christian for almost thirty years now, I have been in the ministry for almost twenty three years of that thirty. One of the key focuses of my ministry has from the very onset been prayer.
It would not be an exxageration to say that I have read dozens of books on prayer, by many authors, representing many diverse streams of Christian thought.
But in all of the books I have read on prayer, I have never been impacted by any like I was when I read Gary Weins' Bridal Intercession. Gary has done what every Christian author would give his proverbial right arm to be able to do, namely to not only assimilate and distribute information about his subject (as crucial as that is), but also to impart a burning passion to see the truths presented birthed in the hearts and minds of the reader.
A warning! If you only see prayer as a cerebial exercise, or simply a spiritual discipline, Bridal Intercession isn't the book for you.
But if, in the core of your being, you sense that our Bridegroom God has a plan, not just "a plan", but a divine strategy to see the heart of our Glorious King birthed and released through cooperative intercession in such a manner that the very spiritual atmosphere of whole cities are eternally affected, then this book will be a tool in the hand of the Master Potter in transforming your very being; igniting a fire on the altar of your heart that will never go out. To what end? That in reality the Kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of our Christ.
As a writer and author myself, as the director of Passion for Jesus Ministries, as a watchman called to work in the establishing of a day and night house of prayer in my city; as one called to invite and train others to participate in the greatest calling afforded to the sons of men, namely joining in with the Soverign Lord in the establishing of His Kingdom on earth, I am always on the lookout for resources that can be given and used without reservation.
