I have always appreciated Jack Hayford's heart of compassion. No matter the topic he is addressing, I always feel like his words are soaked in God's love. In "The Secrets Of Intercessory Prayer," Pastor Hayford lovingly addresses a topic that weighs heavily on so many people's hearts: the eternal destination of our family members.

As a pastor myself, one of the most frequently requested prayer need people share with me is the salvation of their loved ones. It can be so gut-wrenching to feel like someone you love is on a path toward destruction, and seemingly all of your efforts to get them off that path are ineffective. The subtitle of this book is "Unleashing God's Power In The Lives Of Those You Love." What a powerful thought!

I, too, have family members for which I pray on a daily basis, and I found this book to be so encouraging and invigorating. Not only did Pastor Hayford help me see what my prayers are accomplishing in the lives of my loved ones, but his challenging words reengaged me to pray with even greater purpose and intensity.

This book is not so much a how to pray book as it is a why to pray book. If your heart is burdened to pray for your children, grandchildren, parents, or other loved ones, I am confident that "The Secrets Of Intercessory Prayer" will reignite your prayers and refuel your faith.

Format: Paperback
Prayer is not simply asking for things. Prayer is a relationship. Prayer is not a one-way street where we ask, and God gives. It is a multifaceted expression of desiring God's will be done not just in our own lives, but also in the lives of others. Enters intercessory prayer and Jack Hayford's take on what it takes to be good intercessors. Calling it "secrets," Hayford shares passionately about praying for others, out of his deep biblical knowledge (he is a chancellor of King's University, LA) and his extensive pastoral ministry (he is founding pastor of Church on the Way).

Hayford shows readers that prayer is a partnership with God to pray well for other people. In prayer, we confront the brokenness and ask for wholeness. We ask God to bless people in a world of war and curses. We pray for those we love. We pray too for our enemies. We pray for God's healing to be done in a world splintered by the Fall of Man. What humans fail to do (good works), God does it through and through in restoration and healing. The motivation to pray is that God can do anything in His will and Name.

The chief secret of intercessory prayer is restored relationships. We pray against the spirit of division and separation, against deception, evil, and sinfulness. We learn to see how there are things man can do, and there are things only God can do. Prayer is about distinguishing the difference. Intercessory prayer is not simply about benefits for others. There are three promises we receive as well.

1) Promise that God will work mightily in and through our household
2) Promise that our children will come into the Kingdom
3) Promise of potential being fulfilled in God's time.

There are also "secrets" for reaching people.

Format: Paperback
Recently I had the privilege of doing a quick read through The Secrets of Intercessory Prayer by Jack Hayford. Throughout the book, Jack takes his readers through a description and some instructions on how to pray for others effectively. He also shares several thoughtful examples about how prayer worked in his life and in other people's experience to change lives and hearts.

Hayford begins his book by painting a picture of need for more people who are committed to intercessory prayer for their friends, community and world. He shares several examples of how prayer changes things.

He goes on to share about several specific forms of intercessory prayer, from praying for one's family, to praying against the powers of darkness, to praying for those we are longing to see come to faith, and everything in between. He shares these prayer techniques with enthusiasm and passion for prayer that can only come from someone who believes that prayer works.

Hayford shares very specific stories in every chapter which reinforce his points and make it clear that prayer works. The stories and style of writing make this book very easy to read, and a quick read for most readers.

I think this would be a great book for a person who is just beginning to think about and learn about intercessory prayer.

Here are the keys to unlocking effective intercessory prayer. With encouragement, powerful testimonies and keen biblical guidance, pastor and bestselling author Jack Hayford offers the insight you need to pray more effectively for God's grace, goodness and power in the lives of those you love.

The Secrets of Intercessory Prayer by Jack Hayford is probably one of the best books I have read on this subject. This book is filled with helpful suggestions on how to pray for those who are not Christians, as well as ways we can relate to them. I especially appreciated the information about remembering to let God do His part, praying for our children, praying for those we don't want to pray for and praying without ceasing.
While I found the title to be slightly misleading (I really did not find any `secrets") the content was very useful and invigorating. I have already shared portions of The Secrets of Intercessory Prayer with my Bible study friends.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
