From the Back Cover

Right now, someone you know is in desperate need of your prayers. It’s the person out on the front line, leading God’s army into the world to proclaim His good news. Pastors, teachers, and all types of leaders are under severe attack from the enemy. And these leaders depend on the prayers of those who care—people like you—to help see them through.
     The enemy knows where our leaders are vulnerable, and he strikes at their weakest points. But the greater power is on our side. Through intercessory prayer, you can reinforce your leaders with God’s strength and protection.
     If we aren’t praying, though—if intercessory prayer is missing—the full extent of God’s power is often stifled in the lives and ministries of our leaders. They can’t do it alone. Someone must “pray the price.” Prayer Shield is a field manual to help you become that person, to help you step into the gap and intercede for your pastor or leader. This book will show you if you have been called to intercessory prayer and then provide step-by-step instructions for praying like never before. You will learn:
  • The biblical basis for intercessory prayer
  • Who is and who isn’t an intercessor
  • Why leaders themselves often don’t pray enough
  • How to recruit prayer partners
  • The three types of personal intercessors
If you’re called to be an intercessor, Prayer Shield will show you how to enter the battle confidently and carefully, so you can help protect those under the strongest attack from the enemy: our spiritual leaders. Your prayers can make all the difference.

Format: Paperback
Prayer Shield covers the topic of personal intercession.. e.g. of those who are commited to pray for and cover an individual (such as a pastor or the leader of a ministry) in prayer. It begins by sharing some true stories of the power of prayer, and also develops what the Bible teaches on the subject of intercession and prayer partners.
The second chapter explores intercessors from every angle.. I feel that one of the most powerful insights in the book is the concept of different types of prayer assignments, and how to determine which type you fit into as an intercessor. E.g., some people specialize in thoroughly praying a request through, and they desire details and feedback and keep prayer lists and prayer journals detailing their requests and how/when God answered them. Others tend to be more prophetic in nature. They find it hard to take requests from people and do not like to keep lists.. they prefer to come before the Lord and get their prayer assignment directly from Him. You need to give lots of details and feedback to those who specialize in praying a request through, but you don't want to bog a prophetic intercessor down with too many specific details and requests. Peter identifies 4 types of intercessors. The book help leaders to determine which prayer-type their intercessors are so they can give them prayer information/requests in a manner that works best for them.
Subsequent chapters develop why pastors and leaders need personal intercession, and how they can begin developing and mobalizing personal intercessors. It teaches leaders how to recieve intercession and how to develop relationship with their intercessors and how to supply them with the information they need to be effctive.
(A personal note.. I used to be one of Peter and Doris Wagner's personal intercessors, and I can attest that they live what they teach in this book.. and as an intercessor, I found their system very workable.)

A seminal book on personal intercession. I've used Prayer Shield as a textbook, and I've sent copies to several ministers to help them initiate prayer support for their own ministry.
The concept of intercession being one of the gifts of the Spirit is ground breaking. Wagner's treatise on the different functions of intercession is vital for any serious prayer ministry.
The bottom line of this book is if a pastor fails in ministry the congregation needs only to look at their amount (or lack) of prayer support to answer the inevitable question of "Why?"

I truly believe in prayer, yet I'm always learning and coming into an understanding of things I never knew in this book. If you're looking for understanding of who God called you to be and what intercession is, this book is it. I believe it lays the foundation necessary to build from what you don't already know or add to what you do know. I enjoy reading it and will use this book as a valuable resource.

I really enjoy this book and recommend it highly to anyone serious about praying for their leaders. I refer back to the book often and I am reading it again, even now. Mr. Wagner's teachings are clear, easy to understand and learn, as well as, incorporate into my life. The author mentors his students, very well, encouraging them to be all that scripture challenges them to live out, in being a support system to those in any role of leadership. I will continue to give this book to friends as a tool, to be used to become a blessing in the world, as they pray each day.

I had a Divine appointment with this book.
I'm fairly certain it was written just for me!
And probably for you too...

When I bought this book, I didn't even know that I could be "called" to intercede... I just knew I was desperate to answer this urgent call that was taking my sleep from me and drawing me to my prayer closet. With a heavy burden to intercede for my Pastors and another Christian leader I was desperate to know HOW to go about fulfilling this urgency,in my spirit, to pray. Thank God for this book!

I don't know why this book isn't required reading for every person who wants to be a Pastor. I should be! Imagine where the church as a whole would be if everyone had a proper prayer covering..... just a thought.

LOVED the book! It's a MUST READ for sure!

Prayer Shield is an excellent book for everyone who is serious about engaging in the prayer walk with God and considers to be an effective intercessor yourself or for the leader/pastor in your church or para-church you served.

This is the best and most challenging book I've read on intercession and prayer for Pastors and Leaders. If you are serious about covering your leadership in prayer, or even thinking about it, get this book. I've bought it a few times as gifts now for people, and it's been well recieved. Entirely biblical, I found myself about shouting a few times reading this. Want to serve your Pastor and leadership in a way that will impact all of eternity? READ THIS.
