Men Should Always Pray
on July 26, 2009
"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."
