Spiritual Advocates- How to plead for justice, stand in the gap, and make a difference in the world by praying for others. By Eddie & Alice Smith Book

Review By Linda Lee

 

We have all suffered, we have all been attacked by Satan–but the Word of God gives us strategies for Victory. We wonder why we suffer. I I Peter it says…”you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may prove genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” Using courtroom illustrations, Eddie and Alice teach us about our advocate, how to be an advocate for others and how to overcome with overwhelming victory. They quote Spurgeon on fervent prayer. Martin Luther is quoted as saying: ” It’s no more possible to be a Christian without prayer than it is to be alive without breathing.” Many of us have not been taught in warfare praying which can result in entanglements with our enemy, or simply ineffective prayer. No one would consider going to court without an attorney–yet we often neglect to enlist the help of our attorney, The Holy Spirit. More often, we neglect to join The Holy Spirit in advocating on behalf of friends and family. Quote from Eddie and Alice Smith: ” The Lord is not moved by our tears as He moved by our faith when it is based on His Word. (Rom. 10:17 KJV) It’s not that we shouldn’t be emotional, but the foundation of our prayer should be God’s truth, not our feelings! Faith is our greatest advantage in prayer. (Heb. 11:6). God is calling us into battle to press His purposes forward with unflagging zeal until we accomplish what He has burdened us to pray for. This is where pursuing prayer takes over.” No matter how long you have been a believer, teacher, Pastor, this book will give you strategic insights into victory praying from a rational and biblical perspective.
