Intercession

DuewelMighty Prevailing Prayer, by Wesley Duewel

This is the all-time, must-have prayer manual for intercession. I keep rereading it, and have at least one-third of the book underlined. Every time I read it, I pick up on something new. Recommended by Leonard Ravenhill.

**************************

BoundsThe Complete Works of E. M. Bounds on Prayer: Experience the Wonders of God through Prayer, by E. M. Bounds

Mr. Bounds lived in the mid-to-later 1800’s. I have been greatly inspired by his timeless writings. This is engaging reading. Geared toward the intermediate-to-more advanced intercessor.

untitledRules of Engagement: Preparing for Your Role in the Spiritual Battle, by Derek Prince

Derek Prince was a pioneer in deliverance ministry and spiritual warfare.  This book will help you understand how spiritual warfare is waged in the heavenlies, and what place the Christian prayer warrior plays in it.  It is filled with insightful, practical teaching for the Christian who is determined to go after God at all costs and finish his or her race well in the war of the ages.

**************************

secretsSecrets of a Prayer Warrior, by Derek Prince

A profound read for those who long to be effective in receiving answers to prayer.  Mr. Prince takes the position that it is not really governmental leaders who rule and reign, but the prayer warriors who  govern the affairs  of earth through their prayers.   When we put the Lord’s glory before all else, we can expect to have every prayer answered.  This ia a very practical, biblical approach to prayer.  I was thrilled with what I learned.

**************************

LynneThe Master Is Calling, by Lynne Hammond

I could have put this one either in the Intercession or Hearing God category.  Mrs. Hammond leads us into the wonderful adventure of prophetic prayer that flows naturally out of intimate time in the Lord’s Presence.  Read my review for more details.

**************************

John PaulNeedless Casualties of War, by John Paul Jackson

An absolute must-read for every intercessor, this book explains the do’s and don’ts of engaging in spiritual warfare.  Although we sometimes tend to think that we are safe in what we don’t know, the devil has no mercy on our ignorance.  This book goes against the grain of much of current popular teaching on spiritual warfare, but it is a much-needed balance to the subject.

**************************

grubbRees Howells: Intercessor, by Norman Grubb

Rees Howells’ intercessory ministry spanned the two World Wars. The prayers offered up by Mr. Howells and his band of intercessors turned the course of World War 2 and ushered in the reestablishment of Israel as a nation. This is his story, along with his philosophy of prayer, healing, and faith for finances. There is much for every intercessor to learn from Rees Howells’ life.

**************************

HowellsThe Intercession of Rees Howells, by Doris M. Ruscoe

Written by one of Rees Howells’ close associates and fellow intercessors, this book, although not as lengthy as the Norman Grubb version, gives greater detail to the teachings of Mr. Howells. Of the two, this one was my favorite, although both are essential reading.

The Prophetic Gifts

gollThe Seer: The Prophetic Power of Visions, Dreams, and Open Heavens, by James Goll

A detailed, very balanced explanation of what we should expect in the prophetic, along with cautions about unbiblical supernatural experiences.

**************************

James Goll Prophetic IntercessorThe Prophetic Intercessor: Releasing God’s Purposes to Change Lives and Influence Nations, by James Goll

This is a wonderful book! Honestly, one of the best parts is where Mr. Goll, a nationally-known prophet, comments that he was not a seer/prophet from birth. He acquired his gifts by diligently seeking the Lord for them. There is hope for every one of us average types!

**************************

goll2Dream Language: The Prophetic Power of Dreams, by James and Michal Ann Goll

This book deals extensively with dreams and has a dream dictionary at the end, but it also imparts much wisdom about any form of revelation and how to handle your prophetic gifts well.   See my review for a more detailed explanation.

Faith

believer authorityThe Believer’s Authority, by Kenneth E. Hagin

I have to confess, I was never one to get into the “Word of Faith” movement. Like many others, I was turned off by excesses that I saw. My husband encouraged me to read this book, and what I found was balanced, biblical teaching on our authority in Christ. Mr. Hagin himself did not subscribe to the errors of some teachers in the Word of Faith movement, and spoke out against wrong faith teaching in his later years. I have come to deeply respect this man of God, and I have learned so much from him! This book, along with The Name of Jesus, is essential reading for every believer.

**************************

name JesusThe Name of Jesus, by Kenneth E. Hagin

This book gave me a much deeper understanding of the authority we have available to us in the Name of Jesus. The Believer’s Authority and this book, in my opinion, are essential reading for any Christian who wants to walk in the power-filled life Jesus intended for His Church.

Healing

lakeThe Complete John G. Lake

I feel inspired and spurred on to greater faith every time I read Mr. Lake. He was a man of great faith, great compassion, and great authority in the Spirit. This is the exhaustive compilation of his sermons and writings.

**************************

smithThe Complete Smith Wigglesworth

The exhaustive compilation of Mr. Wigglesworth’s preaching. Smith Wiggleworth is often called the Apostle of Faith, and, along with John G. Lake, was a forerunner of the modern faith movement.

**************************

increasingEver Increasing Faith, by Smith Wigglesworth

A much smaller sampling of Wigglesworth’s teaching, for those who don’t have the time or inclination to read the 1,000+ page book!

 

**************************

heal the sickHow to Heal the Sick, by Charles and Frances Hunter

The Hunters give us a practical, how-to book for healing the sick. Their writing style is fun and full of anecdotes, while giving us details of varieties of ways to get people healed. You will walk away from this book with confidence that anyone can move in the healing gifts — even you.

**************************

bevingtonRemarkable Miracles, by G. C. Bevington

G. C. Bevington was a backwoods preacher in the early 1900’s. He was a marvelous man of prayer, faith, and healing. This is his autobiography. Because of his style of writing, it takes a couple of chapters to get into the book, but if you persevere, you will find his book to be a treasure.

Christian Growth

The Shelter of the Most HighThe Shelter of the Most High, by Francis Frangipane

A beautiful look into what it means to rest in the protection of intimate communion with God. Francis Frangipane’s wisdom and uncompromising passion for experiencing the full Christian life as it was meant to be lived just shines. Very inspiring and challenging. See my full review.

**************************

River Life: Entering into the Character of JesusRiver Life: Entering into the Character of Jesus, by Lee Ann Rubsam

Much attention has been given in recent years to building Christian character in children, but what about adults who are new to the Kingdom of God — or have been with us awhile, but have never been taught? This book covers basic principles of integrity that every Christian should be living by. Godly character is not about a list of do’s and don’ts; it is about understanding the heartbeat of God and getting our own hearts to beat in sync with His!

Designed with the adult Sunday School class, church discipleship/growth class, or home Bible study in mind,the materials are also flexible enough to be used by those who are unable to attend group sessions. (Works well for homeschooled teens, too!)
