5.0 out of 5 stars There simply isn't a better book on the subject of Prayer
I'm not sure where the previous comments came from regarding this book straying from the biblical record - it simply isn't true - or either that, they didn't read the book. Dutch Sheet's book, Intecessory Prayer is simply the most definiative AND bibically sound book on prayer that there is today - so much so, that I would call it a DEFINITAVE WORK. There are many...

1.0 out of 5 stars The biblical basis for this book is nonexistant.
Sheets evidently knows something of prayer and has some insights into practices, but when he writes on theological issues, he strays from the biblical record.

5.0 out of 5 stars There simply isn't a better book on the subject of Prayer, 12 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
I'm not sure where the previous comments came from regarding this book straying from the biblical record - it simply isn't true - or either that, they didn't read the book. Dutch Sheet's book, Intecessory Prayer is simply the most definiative AND bibically sound book on prayer that there is today - so much so, that I would call it a DEFINITAVE WORK. There are many other very good books on prayer out there, but this book provides a theologically sound explanation of prayer which almost every Christian can apply immediately, leading them to a more fullilling prayer life. This revelatory information contained in this book has lifted my prayer life to a new level - I'll never be the same. Thanks Dutch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitive once and for all textbook on prayer., 6 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
The gist is that God needs someone to 'release' His power on earth for Him to do things. This is because God conferred authority over earth to man at the time of creation, authority that was eventually turned over to Satan. Jesus came to bridge the gap and re-take that authority, and through His death He empowered us to do the same.
Sheets goes through all of the different kinds of ways we can pray (calls them 'annointings') and backs them up with scripture and examples from his ministry experiences. Some of his examples seem a little too Hollywood-esque however, and his interpretations of scripture sometimes seem 'forced', out of context and should be read with care.
Sheets answers all of the tough prayer questions, such as why do we need to pray more than once (bowls that fill up with our prayers that 'release' God's power when full), and why we need to pray at all if He is the Almighty God (see the gist section at the top). He addresses these and other issues in a very informal tone with a touch of humor that is very lively. Nowhere does the book ever get too dry or stale.
Overall, this book opens your eyes to the powers and opportunities of prayer. If you don't have faith that He can move mountains, don't bother. But if you want to be an ambassador of Jesus and continue His ministry of prayer to open hearts to the good news, break strongholds and whatever else it might be, it's a good training book. Like the back cover says, it gets you excited to pray with a different attitude, and you do see more clearly how your prayers affect life around you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read - sensational approach, 22 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
For anybody with a gift of intercession this is an ideal book from which to develop an in depth understanding.
Many excellent examples of intercession practice. Most important plenty of scriptural support.
This book is both exciting - encouraging the desire to be a Prayer Warrior - but also thought provoking - why do we not pray more? - why are our lives so busy and our priorities off beam.
I have just finished reading the book, now I am extracting the ideas - can't wait to put it all into practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intercessory Prayer: How God can use your prayers, 18 Dec. 2007

I recommend this book to every Christian. It has transformed my life. The priinciples Dutch Sheets has highlighted are incredible. A book that needs to be re-read. A most read and study at least once a year. The follow-up book Watchman Prayer is also an excellent book. A great accompaniment for Intercessory Prayer. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars guaranteed to change the way you pray!, 17 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
When you pray, do you feel any real sense of its purpose? Do you feel that whether or not your prayers are answered is fairly random. Do you occasionally feel you are simply pleading with God. This book explains clearly and biblically the real purpose of prayer: why it is essential and part of the role God designed us to have in our partnership with Him. It is guaranteed to change the way you pray, becuase once you understand why you are doing it, your motivation cannot fail to change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply awesome! A lifechanger!, 4 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
After reading many books and receiving theoretical, nebulous pieces of information on prayer, I have finally found a book that is full of practical guidelines on the subject. This book has so stretched and challenged me and changed my life that I have recommended it to nearly everyone I know. Kudos to Dutch Sheets for allowing God to use him in this endeavor.
