Power in Prayer This book is about the power we have in prayer, and in making proclamations. The author wants us to understand there is an unseen war going on around us between the forces of God and the forces of evil. Some of the purposes of this warfare is to stop us from praying, or getting us to give up too soon. As an example, Daniel was told by the angel Gabriel that his prayer had been heard as soon as he said it. However, Gabriel was held up by the prince of Persia for twenty-one days until the angel Michael came to help him. During that time, Daniel continued praying. We are left with the thought that had Daniel given up, Gabriel would never have been able to come to him. This story demonstrates the strength and influence that comes from prayers and intercession Another useful, but little understood weapon, is making proclamations. These carry power, and are a form of spiritual warfare. The author states it is releasing the power of God's word into a situation, and once done, should be followed by praise. This is a potent weapon and can be used either for good or bad. It can be engaged for someone's personal situation, or something on a worldwide scale. It all comes back to Jesus. Our ability to succeed in this comes from the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us on the cross. His blood gives us the gift of eternal life, as well as, giving us power in prayer, and making proclamations while we live here on earth. My thoughts... I think what the author had to say about praying, and the power of proclamations, was very interesting. It is good information to put into practice, but was disappointed more space was not devoted to the subject, especially about proclamations. Very few pages were given to it. I think this is an issue people would like to know more about. Mr. Prince recounted a couple of true-life angel stories that are fascinating, and the information he had about angels was thought-provoking. I do not agree with his opinion about a pre-Adamic race, and felt way too much of the book was devoted to it. I believe in a literal six-day creation, and his "proof" for his position wasn't supported by anything he said. In fact, it hurt my opinion of what he had to say on the other subjects. All in all, I can only recommend the parts about praying and proclamations in this 3-star book. The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through Chosen Books and Bethany House Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest appraisal. Despite my receiving the book free, it has not influenced my judgment.
I recently read War in Heaven by Derek Prince. To be quite honest, as a Bible-believing Christian I have a hard time reading this book. I was not impressed by Derek Prince's conjecture on pre-Adamic race. I am a firm believer in a literal six day creation. For this reason, I had a hard time taking Derek Prince's views on anything to heart. The majority of his so called evidence for his beliefs is mere guesswork. Because of this reason, I had to put the book down. Perhaps some who may feel the same way would enjoy this book, but I simply cannot read a book by a person whom I cannot respect. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
