From the Back Cover

See Your Prayers Answered!

Here are the keys to unlocking effective intercessory prayer. With encouragement, powerful testimonies and keen biblical guidance, pastor and bestselling author Jack Hayford offers the insight you need to pray more effectively for God's grace, goodness and power in the lives of those you love. Pastor Jack also reveals how to

-answer God's divine invitation to partnership

-apply the basic promises of God to prayer

-launch a counterattack against the enemy

-help bring about victory in others' lives

-pray for someone you'd rather not pray for

-and more

Regardless of the situation, you can pray with rightful authority, perseverance and confidence. Stand in the gap for those you love and watch God's answers come.

I have no problems with what Pastor Hayford says in any part of this book. However, it's a pretty dry read. There are several parts where I feel like I have no idea what he was writing about and had to re-read it several times just to get through it. It's not a terribly difficult concept, but a very difficult book to read.

I felt like the book never really got to the point of the title. It tells you lots of things that are revealed in Scripture regarding prayer but doesn't give you really any tips or help to learn to pray yourself. I think the addition of a study/prayer guide would have been very helpful.

I received a copy of the book from Chosen Books in exchange for an honest review. No additional compensation has been received.
