While Prayers That Avail Much went to three volumes, there are still a number of unique intercessory prayer topics in Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith like prayers for “Barrenness, Insecurity, and Backsliders.” Brooks uses the same method and resonates doctrinally with Germaine Copeland. Both agree that using Scripture, or “the language of the kingdom,” and rooting their prayers in the Word of God, will make more effective intercessors. Brooks sees “the language of the kingdom” as the primary tongue of those who are believers. Using scriptural synonyms gives one protection from Satan’s ability to transform perception. This also gives one access to the affirmations and promises of God’s Word, allowing us to “Say, Believe, and Receive.” Her prayers focus on positive outcomes rather than negative situations, giving one the ability to switch from “victim to victorious.” Rather than a book of formulaic prayer, I expected a treatise on prayer based on the Apostle’s Creed and other Affirmations of Faith written through the centuries. This is not that book. Instead, there are scriptural prayers primarily focused on grace and benefits for doing God’s work and will. There was inconsistency in headings and subheadings so it was not always clear which prayers followed one another deeper into spiritual growth or attainment of health, wealth, or God’s blessings. Other concerns I had as I read included equating all mistakes as sin and a title but no prayer for physical abuse but a lengthy one on emotional abuse. All prayers for “affliction” (the majority of the book) are written in first person singular (I), and only a short section labeled “Intercession” including prayers for church growth, missions, nations, and leaders in authority written in first person plural (we). It seems that if intercession is the purpose, following the method of Prayers That Avail Much one step further by leaving spaces for names to be written in and writing in the third person using he, she, and they would make it more usable. While her first book Pray What God Says provides quoted scripture, this book provides the method for using them to make a positive outcome. Martin is still quoting scripture but has placed it in prayers.
All of the affirmations are based on the word of God for nearly every situation. The introductory chapters explain our relationship we have with God and gets you ready to speak the affirmations over your life with more confidence.
There are prayers of affirmation for any area of your life -- spiritual, health, and finances. They help you to know what the scriptures say about your circumstance and helps build your faith in God.
