Overview


Who will defend you today in the trials that you face?  Discover what it means to be an advocate or a spiritual defense attorney as you stand in the gap for others. Look at Job - who was probably the earth's earliest known advocate.  Praise God and claim the key to victory as He uses your trials for His ultimate glory!  Prayer must be the first response to a problem instead of the last resort.  Recognize the power of prayer as you face the accuser of the brethren and examine four of his favorite tactics that he uses against Christians.  While God forges His finest tools in the fire of adversity, know that your Divine Defender clearly carries some remarkable attributes as He pleads your case in the highest court-to the Supreme Judge.

    Learn to Plead the Case of Others in Prayer

    The Advocates by Eddie and Alice Smith is one of my most cherished possessions. I have learned much about prayer and intercession from the pages of this book. It has taught me how to prepare and plead the case of others in prayer; how to approach the courtroom of God and defeat our adversary before the thrown. The last chapter in this book is dynamic in that it teaches us the difference between purpose-driven prayer and problem-centered prayer.

    Understanding the principles of God's Law

    The authors of the Advocates seem to understand the Nature and the Laws of God. This book helped me to understand that prayer is not a about a power encounter with God's arch enemy, but a legal issue before the Righteous Judge of the Universe. It is an insightful book, with a refreshing tone. A cut above the usual.
