I recently had the opportunity to read and review The Secrets of Intercessory Prayer by Jack Hayford, once I started reading the book, I could not put it down!!!
Within three pages I was hooked. Wonderfully written, saturated in God's promises and easy to read with practical tips make this a MUST have book for everyone.
I enjoyed that this book looked into our own thoughts/opinions and how that sometimes hinders us in our prayer life. Sometimes we get so caught up in the "ME" thinking that we forget we were created to depend on God for everything. I also enjoyed how Pastor Hayford related the Biblical truths to life today; showing that the bible still pertains, that it is not outdated.
Two very powerful chapters for me:
* Chapter 3 - War Against the Spirit of Separation. This chapter opened my eyes to the ways I have hindered my own prayers for others. How quickly satan can blind us and make us indifferent to others.
* Chapter 11 - Praying for Someone You Don't Want to Pray For. We have all been there. We have all had people that we rather not pray for. We fall into a trap of turning our backs on those who don't think or act like we do. We say it's because they don't live a Christian lifestyle, never realizing how un-Christian we have become by living with that thinking.
If you are looking to deepen your prayer life or you are just starting to pray, this book is for you. I can't quite put into words how inspiring and powerful it is.
I received a free copy of this book to review from Chosen Books
