As the worldwide prayer movement continues to flourish, never before have so many Christians from so many faith traditions joined together to intercede for so longin their homes, in their churches, in their communities. As the prayer movement continues to explode, leaders emerge to give guidance to the growing number of intercessors . . . and Alice Smith is at their forefront, leading the leaders who have lifted the banner of passionate, effective intercessory prayer for this generation and the next. In Beyond the Veil, Smith proclaims God's call for His people to pray and shares what she has learned on her own journey toward deeper intimacy with God through prayer. Whether readers are new to intercession or are veteran prayer warriors, they will discover sound, biblical methods for binding the enemy and loosing the Holy Spirit in their families, churches, and nations. Each chapter includes questions and prayer exercises, with a corresponding devotional to bring the principles of intercession to life, making Beyond the Veil the essential guidebook for the prayer revival that is sweeping the globe.
