To what extent does one take the power of prayer? In this book, prayer is the way that God works his miracles. We are the one’s who he works through, but there is a right way to pray and a wrong way to pray. In the form of prayer Dutch Sheets promotes, we are listening to the prompting of the sbeets spirit and praying sbeets we feel that the spirit is satisfied, but how intercesssory you know when this is?

Lists with Prsyer Book. Apr 22, Erin Evans rated it liked it Shelves: As a reformed Presbyterian this was a difficult book for me. In some ways I really agreed with the author and it encouraged my prayer life.
In other ways I think he bordered on the heretic side. He “can’t” accomplish things on earth unless we pray? If your friend gets in a car wreck it’s because you didn’t pray for them? On the other hand, I think that as someone of the Reformed theology, we tend to go the other way towards fatalism.
We think dutvh God is in complete control an As a reformed Presbyterian this was a difficult book for me. We think that God is in complete control and while we deny that we sheeets robots, we live like we are.
Everything is set in stone, God is in control, the saved have been saved from the beginning of time, and anything that happens in your life is God’s will, praer why pray other than to have a “relationship” with God? I think the truth is somewhere in the middle and is very grey. God is in complete control, but our prayers still have a part in that. So, this book did encourage me to pray persistently for things and to view those prayers as weapons in a real fight against the enemy, but I can’t whole-heartedly recommend it to other people because of the things that I view as being anti-Scripture.
Aug 16, David Huff rated it really liked it Shelves: I heard a wise saying years ago that reading some books is like eating watermelon it’s still really good and very much worth it, even if you have to spit out a few seeds along the way! This was a wide-ranging look at many different aspects of intercessory prayer, with a more than ample supply of Bible references and illustrations.
Also included were many personal illustrations from the author’s own experiences. Not only did it reinforce many basic truths about sheetss, but I gained a number o I heard a wise saying years ago that reading some books is like eating watermelon it’s still really good and very much worth it, even if intercessoey have to spit out a few seeds along the way! Not only did it reinforce many basic truths about prayer, but I gained a number of helpful and practical insights that were new to me.
It encouraged me in my own prayer life, and that alone was well worth the read. The author writes from intercedsory Pentecostal sheegs, which for some readers may seem occasionally too “subjective” hence my analogy about the seeds — but don’t let that deter you.
This book will enhance your appreciation for the importance and power of prayer! Jul 12, Bill rated sgeets it dutchh amazing Shelves: I think, having read the book, I understand better why we must pray–God needs us to. The author quotes Ezek Had I been able to find a human to ask Me to spare this people, I could have.
It would have allowed Me to show mercy. Because I found no one, however, I had to destroy them. We can wish He had chosen a different path, but we must accept that He knows best. I never really felt this before reading this dtuch. Jul 28, Cary Sawatsky rated it liked it.
A very interesting book on prayer that dares to talk about the subject from a warrior’s point of dutdh. Some of what Dutch says will probably jar you, but I see nothing in this book that is contrary to scriptural teaching. Oct 05, Karen Roberts rated it liked it. I read the repackaged version. Dutch Sheets has repackaged his classic Intercessory Prayer: Sheets caused me to examine my own prayer life in light of Scripture and my traditional understanding of prayer, miracles, and the will of God.
I greatly appreciate the word studies, questions at the end of each chapter, and the Leader Discussion Guide for small groups. When Interecssory consider principles about God, they would do well to imitate the I read the repackaged version.
Shsets, Jesus is one with the Father pprayer Holy Spirit, and we know that God is omnipresent, present everywhere. David so eloquently states this is in Psalm Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. I am concerned that someone who is not a student of the Word of God might misunderstand some of the examples in the book. They anointed his room, his car, his clothing, his bed, and other belongings. God is the One who releases His power. He may use men and women to be the instruments. I have memorials throughout my house that help me remember what God has done in my life.
They have no power in themselves; yet, as I am reminded that God has worked mightily in my life, my faith increases. God instructed the Israelites to have reminders in their homes and in all that they did, even on their bodies. Yet, these objects have no power in themselves. Prayer is a mighty thing. God has used prayer to change me, to heal me of fibromyalgia when no other help appeared to work, to create divine appointments, and to make an impact upon others.
God uses people, and we have power through Jesus. A book of pages cannot serve as a comprehensive study on prayer. Readers need dutxh be aware of what is included and inyercessory is omitted. However, readers need to search the Scriptures and pray about what Sheets presents. I received a complimentary copy from Bethany House for my intercessorg review. I often find that prayeg prayer life is the weakest part of my intercesory life.
Sheets begins his book by examining what I often find that my prayer life is the weakest part of my spiritual life. Sheets begins his book by examining what are our actual questions about prayer and do we really need prayer in our life. Throughout the book, Sheets tells colorful stories from his own life and from those of other people, and he writes in an easy-to-read, personal style.
This is actually quite an enjoyable book to read. Yet, I found myself, when he truly turned to matters of theology often in disagreement with his beliefs about our spiritual life and about prayer.
I think he goes to far in his description of us as co-laborers with Christ. I think that he makes it almost sound as if through prayer we can activate some kind of impersonal energy that will fulfill our requests.
I also disagreed with how often that he portrays the omnipotent God of the universe as powerless without our prayers. And I hate and struggle with saying that about a book because it is well-written. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Oct 11, Kathy rated it really liked it. I was really convicted sheefs my prayer life as I read this book. It is written from inetrcessory charismatic viewpoint but that didn’t really affect my opinion of the book one intercewsory or the other.
Sheets believes that God needs us to pray to release His authority over circumstances. Things are changed when we pray and things remain unchanged when we don’t. His idea is that as we pray, we bring God’s authority and will into our circumstances and that the enemy’s authority over that situation is broken.
He does I was really convicted about my prayer life as I read this book.
