Review of Secrets of a Prayer Warrior

I've read a plethora of prayer books, and Derek Prince brings a refreshing look at the fundamentals of getting your prayers answered. He slowly helps you to redirect your view of God and what you believe about his purpose for prayer. Continually drawing from scripture, like the wise teacher he was, Prince pulls from the storehouse of God’s word, the truth about what prayer is, and what it is not. With bold statements such as, “The way we pray will decide the way the universe goes,” one has to wonder if the believer truly understands the power of prayer. Bringing clarity to scriptural references, Prince launches you step by liberating step into the wonderful life of prayer.

Reading Secrets of a Prayer Warrior was truly like being in a science lab. I not only read about prayer, but as I turned the pages, I paused and prayed as my eyes were opened to biblical truth. I prayed all kinds of prayers throughout my reading. I asked God to forgive me for not obeying what his word says about how we ought to pray. Then, I had moments when I broke forth in thanksgiving, as I realized how good God is, and how my prayer life had developed just from reading and applying the secrets in the book.

If you feel your prayer life has gotten off track, Derek Prince's secrets will do a marvelous job of reminding you how you ought to pray, getting you back on track. It’s not a book that you will easily put down and forget about. Rather, as you apply these secrets of a prayer warrior, you will find your prayer life being injected with new life. You might not be able to stop sharing it with others! I have been recommending this book as if I were the one who wrote it.

In conclusion, let me share another profound statement from Derek Prince: “When we become aligned with God’s purpose, we are going to pray prayers that are irresistible.”
