    This is perhaps one of the best books I have ever read. We all know we should pray; we all know that prayer is fundamental to our relationship with God. This book explores the depth that prayer can take us to, and expresses the powerful gift that is intercessory prayer.

    In almost every chapter, the author expounds on the Hebrew word for intercession. Like many Hebrew words, this one has a vast array of meanings. When you begin to see the nuances that shape intercession it is nothing short of awesome.

    The first idea is that intercession is a meeting with God. Not only do we meet with him, but we are essentially praying other meetings into occurrence. Think about the meetings you have in your life, is there any greater than when you meet with Jesus? Think about someone you love who is lost; is any meeting more important than their meeting Jesus?

    Consequently, I think my favorite chapter was the one explaining how to intercede for unbelievers. While none of the concepts was new, when put together the unbeliever becomes fully covered in prayer and the power of Satan is bound. This has become a blessing to me as I pray for lost loved ones.

    One day I was reading this book while a friend was visiting. This friend tends to use the word 'awesome' indiscriminately and wants to be corrected when he does. Anyway, he was sitting at the table when I suddenly said, "This is awesome!" He thought I was teasing him, but no, this truly is an awesome picture of intercession:

    "Amazing power can be released through intercession. A great verse in Job pictures this power in intercession: "He covers His hands with the lightning, and commands it to strike the mark" (Job 36:32) The phrase "strike the mark" is translated from 'paga,' our Hebrew word for "intercession." Awesome! When lightning flashes from God's presence, its striking the desired target is comparable to what happens in intercession." (quote from pg 97 The Essential Guide to Prayer, Sheets)

    This book has kindled a new excitement in me to pray, but not just to pray; to MEET with God; to beg for the burden to intercede for others; to be willing to bear the pain of intercession; to be worthy to share to joy of intercession. We are all commanded to pray as believers, this book showcases the need to take it from a commandment to a commitment!

    I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.

    What a powerful book. This book truly stirred my heart and empowered me.

    I think sometimes when it comes prayer we can become confused and not even sure what to pray about at the time, or who. At least for me that happens. This book talks about being sensitive to the promptings you might get from the Holy Spirit, even if the prompting wakes you up in the middle of the night.

    Sometimes I feel bad because I am not one of those people who can go up to someone and just say, "Hey, can I pray for you?" or, "Jesus loves you." But maybe that isn't for everyone. Maybe instead of approaching someone in the grocery store I just pray for them. I see that mom struggling with her kids I and intercede for her right there but don't say anything out loud. Now, there is a time and place for approaching and I think we need to be sensitive if Jesus is telling you that you need to be vocal and approach someone. But let's not discount the power of intercession.

    If someone or something keeps coming to your mind maybe you need to be interceding for them and this book will empower you to do just that.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    The Essential Guide To Prayer: How To Pray With Power And Effectiveness by Dutch Sheets is mostly a book of testimonies about various purposes and types of intercessory prayers. I found the subtitle to be slightly misleading. While there is a suggested prayer and study questions at the end of each chapter, this book is focused more on examples than instructions, as the "how to" heading would imply.

    While Dutch does provide both personal and second-hand testimonies to support each of his points about effective prayer, you have to be the type of person that can learn from examples and replicate the experience of others within your own life in order to really make a lot of personal progress here.

    As a book used to enlighten and encourage you on the prospect of intercessory prayer, I'd give this book 4 stars. However, it is lacking in personal suggestions aside from the testimonies, and Dutch spends a large portion of the book sharing second-hand stories that he's heard or read elsewhere. For me, this made it seem more like a college thesis than a book meant for personal growth in your relationship with God. 3/5 stars.
