"For my part, I love to pray, and what is more, I get what I pray for." Now how many people do you know who can boldly make that statement. This is an excerpt of the late Derek Prince's opening paragraph of his new book; "Secrets of A Prayer Warrior." By just reading the first chapter of this book you're left in no uncertain terms, with a confidence that by the time you finish reading the book, you too will be endowed with the tools you need to get your prayers answered.

I have read a plethora of prayer books and Derek Prince brings a refreshing look at the basic fundamentals to getting your prayers answered. He slowly helps you to redirect your lens and view of God and what we believe about his purpose for prayer. Continually drawing from scripture like the wise teacher he was, he draws from the storehouse of God's word, the truth about what prayer is, and what it is not. With bold statements such as, "The way we pray will decide the way the universe goes," one has to wonder if the believer truly understands the power of prayer. In this book, he takes us step by step, bringing clarity to scriptural references that will liberate you and launch you into the wonderful life of prayer.

Reading this book was truly like being in a science lab, where I not only read about prayer but as I turned the pages of the book, I would pause and pray as my eyes were opened to biblical truth. I prayed all kinds of prayers through reading the book. I asked God to forgive me for not obeying what his word says about how we ought to pray. Then I had moments when I broke forth in thanksgiving as I realized how good God is and how my prayer developed just from reading and applying the secrets.

Derek Prince did a marvelous job of getting us back on track concerning how men ought to pray. It's not a book that you will be able to put down and forget about, but as you apply the secrets of a prayer warrior, you will find that your prayer life has been injected with new life and you cannot stop sharing it with others. I have been recommending this book as if I wrote it myself. I will conclude this review with Derek Prince's statement, "When we become aligned with God's purpose, we are going to pray prayers that are irresistible."

Since becoming a Christian, over 20 years ago, I have read a number of books on prayer, which I believe to be the most powerful force and most amazing privilege available to the believer. I have been blessed by many of those works, such as the book "Too Busy NOT to Pray" and a number of books on prayer by E.M. Bounds, particularly "Power Through Prayer" with its powerful description of the many hours and deep intensity of the prayers of many great Christian leaders down through history.

However, none of those excellent resources has transformed my prayer life like Derek Prince's "Secrets of a Prayer Warrior." With every chapter I read I found myself thinking "I've already gotten so much from this book that even if I gain no new insight in the remainder of the book, I will still be well satisfied." Then I would read the next chapter and find more amazing material. He details twelve different types of prayer and their distinctions, gives guidance on How to Discover God's Will, talks about the power of the blood of Jesus (in a chapter titled "God's Atomic Weapon") and, most of all, fills the reader with a real PASSION for prayer and the expectation of achieving powerful results through prayer. I believe that every Christian who is serious about their prayer life will find something in this book that will re-ignite the flame of passion for daily communication with God.

This book has literally changed my life and has opened up my eyes to the beautiful awesome blood of Jesus. Every christian should read this book so as to get a complete understanding of prayer and how it can change every area of your life. God is real and so are answered prayers. My family received an answer for a life changing prayer while reading this book. Prayer is not a science, but a real dialog with our creator! He longs to have a relationship with his children through prayer. I will never approach the throne of God like I did before I read this book. Even my young children have learned how to pray effectively. God is good, He is still on the throne and his promises are YES and my response is AMEN!!

Every christian who is serious about their faith needs to read this book. It is easy to read and clearly defines what prayer is, what it is for and how to effectively do it! It's prayer 101! Having been a christian for the last 20 years, i thought I knew what prayer was. However after reading this book, I realize that I have never really scratched the surface of being a real prayer warrior. I'm am unbelievably excited to be armed with this information and and have seen a transformation in my faith.

Just as Derek Prince gives a lot of knowledge in his books, They Shall expel Demons, & Blessing Or Curse I suggest reading all 3 but if only read one would choose They Shall expel Demons.
In this book D. P. really shows that all prayer is heard instantly & all heaven gets to work on it. All heaven means both God & Satan. God responds to answer & Satan goes to work to keep answers from being delivered. But Jesus promised that all prayers given in His Name will be answered if we trust Him to deliver. He uses the example of Daniel as an example. Daniel prayed & fasted 21 days before his answer was given. When the angel arrived to deliver the answer he told Daniel how the minute that his prayer was given, they heard & began to answer. Michael sent an angel with the answer but the angel had to pass thru Satan's heaven to get here.
The angel was having such a hard time that Michael, who protects Israel in the heavenlies, came in person to assist. I know people who are demon harassed now & they say that the demons are afraid of Michael. I believe that Michael probably always sends enough angel warriors to get thru faster now because the demons show a lot of fear when Michael is called on. Do not doubt, all prayer is heard instantly & every prayer is answered in God's time. Some of my answers that came slowly, I realized why when I learned a few very important facts about the situations during the wait. I was glad that it took more time.

Once again in his easy reading, writing style, Derek Prince makes understanding prayer simple. He uses scripture to explain different types of prayer, conditons for answered prayer, understanding the significant of the blood of Jesus and more. This book is helpful for those who want to seek a deeper prayer life.

I read all the time, and go through a lot of books in a year,
and this was by far the best book I read in 2009.
It was insightful and thought provoking. I learned a lot.
I bought 6 more copies, and gave them to friends!

He is a master of languages and has a background in philosophy from King's College Cambridge. So when Derek Prince says the Greek or Hebrew could be translated such and such it comes from a background of study since the age of 9. He probably is the most balanced and thorough teacher of the Word. This little gem wraps you in encouragement and truth. Derek Prince is the premier teacher of the 20th century. He is to our generation what Tozer was to his and what Finney was to his. When Derek expounds on a passage it is as if one is seeing a gem taken from hiding, even a very familiar passage. Also his economy of words is a delight. Many modern teacher gasp hot hair and filler. Derek is always concentrated. Grab a pen and don't let a syllable fall to the ground. Listening to his presentations more than once, always something new emerges. Any CD or book by Derek has the same unfolding quality as the Bible.

Still in the midst of reading the book but I like the sound wisdom and the ability to apply what I'm reading into my personal life. Prayer is essential to a born-again believers being productive in such a secular system that we are forced to reckon with as it directly opposes our system of beliefs which are according to the word of God.
