Another book on spiritual warfare, intercession and evangelism. Lots of examples, and very readable.
This is a powerful book, well-written and readable, just what you’d expect from the man who invented Teen Challenge and experienced and wrote about the events in The Cross and the Switchblade. This is a good book for making notes on, writing in, and reading several times. Highly recommended.
This book contains a lot of biblical wisdom, the only beef I have with Peter Wagner is that he’s into church growth, which doesn’t seem bad until you consider that church growth is more about getting bums on seats (and coins in the collection plate) than it is about discipling and spiritual maturity. Still the book addresses points that are unavoidable for anyone serious about the power of prayer.
The premise of this book is that if we all dedicated ourselves to spending an hour a day on God, then not only would we be different, but the world would be different too. Mr Eastman recommends a structure to time spent with God, and explains the rationale. Interesting and inspiring.
This book contains chapters by various people such as Cindy Jacobs, Bev Klopp and George Otis Jr and is concerned with spiritual mapping of settlements. In fact George Otis Jr is the person credited with coming up with the term spiritual mapping. It’s a good basic text to learn more about territorial spirits.
This is a sensible, biblical view on fasting. It’s inspiringly written by a holy man, who writes normal English for normal people. Thank goodness.
I love the title of this book. And I enjoyed the book too, it’s inspiring and encouraging, but it’s the sort of book you need to read several times just to take it all in. A prayer staple.
He’s good. This is a sensible, ordinary man writing about prayer. All his books are worth reading.
This is one of the books that’s on any bibliography of intercession. It’s pretty good, the points are well-explained, but there does seem to be an over-emphasis on the need for ‘covering’ from church leaders. Which is not quite so bad if your church leader happens to be a Christian… Still, it’s a good book, unfortunately marred by those bits that seem written specifically to keep the paid leadershp going. Shame.
Well, sometimes you just wonder, don’t you? If you want something that you know God wants to give you, and you’re asking, asking, asking; why isn’t it here?
I read this book in frustration. It’s a good book, Mr Christensen is a sensible and biblical man. I’m going to go through this book again, with a magnifying glass.
I probably read this book in the wrong frame of mind. God had been ignoring me for days – it’s never a good thing, and so I read it in pretty much one sitting. What can you do when you want answers, and only people with skin on have got things to say to you? I seemed to have been taking rather a lot of advice lately, but nothing’s the same as getting in with the big cheese. This is a book I’ll have to read again – it’s promising.
I had to put this book down for a bit because I found the first half a bit irritating. However, it did improve, and the second half was really good, so I’m glad I stuck with it. It’s not an indepth book, but it is inspiring and encouraging. Good to read.
As you would expect, it’s written by Alice Smith, so it’s a lovely book and it’s useful too. It’s kind of like having a spiritual bath, and then getting on with the stuff you need to do. Lush.
God be in my head, and in my understanding
God be in m eyes, and in my looking
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking
God be in my heart, and in my thinking
God be at my end, and at my departing.
- Sixteenth century Sarum Primer
This is a good basic study of the biblical stance of spiritual warfare. Good and solid, and exactly what you’d expect from Mr Prince.
Ah, brilliant book. Logical, well-researched, biblical and real. I like Mr Prince. Essential reading in the sanctum.
Good book. And an absolute bargain on lovely Amazon. This is a brilliant book for curling up on a sofa with on a rainy day. Tremendously inspiring. Need to read it again in a bit.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I am yours and you are mine. I give you all I have and all I am today and forever. Your perfect will be done in my life.
Create in me a clean heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit. Cleanse me of anything unwholesome preventing me getting closer to you. Search me and know my heart; try me and know my thoughts, and see if there is any sin within me. Help me to repent of it and turn to you fully.
Give me the mind of Messiah, his love, care and wisdom. Fill me once again with your Holy Spirit. Show me, tell me what you would like me to pray for today. Let my heart be broken by the things that are breaking your heart – tell me what to pray for and how.
Please continue to protect, develop and bless our marriage. Develop in us an insatiable hunger for a closer relationship with you. Give us a daily baptism of your love, joy, peace, faith, strength, mercy, kindness, patience, goodness, gentleness, self-control, and righteousness.
Bless our little church and unify us. Help us spread the gospel and let our church grow with new believers. Open the eyes of those who don’t know you and reveal yourself to them. Let today be a day when multitudes turn to you. Keep our family in good health and help them turn to you, developing a close relationship with you.
Let me leave your presence hungrier for you than when I entered it. Let me always be grateful for your abundant blessings, but desperately hungry for more of you. Set my heart on fire with passion and unquenchable hunger for you.
Ignore the title, it’s a good book. Mr Dunn is a sensible chap and knows what he’s talking about. His concern is to mobilise the Church to pray – because that’s when stuff happens. We are not to pine after a hope of revival, if we want revival we are to commit to praying for it. Mr Dunn encourages Christians to become active people – and that involves more prayer than anything else.
Oh I like him. He talks sense. This is a great book, and a quick read too. I like that he doesn’t faff around using loads of words, he gets on with it, and my, my, my, he’s a wise man. His wife has a lot to cope with though…
This is a follow-up to his book called Intercessory Prayer which goes through the basics. This is highly recommended, and hugely inspiring, not least because it kind of helps you know what you’re talking about – which always helps when praying.
