Dutch Sheets is a very good writer. He tells humorous stories to illustrate what he is trying to say. I always learn so much when I read one of his books. He includes simple word study info to teach more fully the concept. This book is very easy to read. It is not too complex for any believer to read. By the end you will understand your authority in prayer and be ready to apply it.
Have you wondered how to reconcile God's sovereignty with prayer? Why pray if God has everything all lined out and His mind never changes? Why did God tell us to ask for anything? why not just praise Him and say God's will be done? What do we do with all those bold and powerful statements concerning prayer in the Bible? This is the best book I have ever read on the topic of prayer. Pastor Dutch Sheets looks at the authority given to Adam in the beginning, how that authority was usurped by Satan and won back by Jesus. He then explains how Jesus gave that authority back to His Church. Sheets, who is very much into Greek word studies (a man after my own heart!), explains that God's plan for us is to pray with true authority, knowing that Christ our Head wants to release His kingdom rule through us. The Father's original plan is now reinstated. He is governing the earth through His kids. How often have you heard in church circles, God has a plan? Dutch Sheets emphasizes that WE are God's plan that God is waiting for the church to be the church. He says we mustgrow in our boldness and skill, learning to partner with the Spirit to operate in and impact this realm. Written with humor, intelligence, insight and a lot of personal experience, this is a book I'm always going to keep extras of, just so I can give it away. This book can re-energize your prayer life and help you truly believe that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.(James 5:16)
