In The Beginner's Guide to Intercessory Prayer, you'll learn to find your motivation for prayer in the power of love by first and foremost experiencing a lasting relationship with God as Father and friend. As Dutch Sheets lays the foundation for our motivation to pray, he teaches that our relationship with Christ doesn't need to be complex--it can be a simple act of pure devotion. In The Beginner's Guide to Intercessory Prayer, you will learn the 13 "P's" of intercession, which include priority, pleasure, plan, and pain, and be challenged to practice what you have learned through the "Did You Understand" questions at the end of each chapter. Make intercessory prayer a part of your life by learning to pray effectively, by learning to pray alone and in groups, and by persisting in prayer.
