Army On Its Knees - The Dynamics of Great Commission Prayer is not intended to be just another pleasant read.
God is calling our Army to prayer! The Spirit is drawing us into a sacrificial, and sometimes risky, life of prayer. There are networks of prayer forming, revivals of continuous 24-7 prayer, prayer fellowships and weekly days of prayer bringing together those who agree in faith on common objectives as they pray.
This calls for our response. 'I implore you by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love that the Spirit inspires, be my allies in the fight: pray...' (Romans 15:30, New English Bible).
This was Paul's plea and is the burden of the authors (Colonel Janet Munn and Major Stephen Court) of this challenging book.
'The authors of this invaluable guide for prayer warriors have been aggressively motivating, mobilizing and training Salvationists for this vital ministry of intercession' affirm retired General Paul A. Rader and Commissioner Kay F. Rader. 'What they share here has been born and bathed in their own practice of prayer. It breathes their passion for prayer as intercession and intervention in the battle for souls. They are catalysts in a global revival of commitment to prayer that makes a difference'.
To equip you to win the world for Jesus, Army On Its Knees describes the fundamentals of prayer - from private prayer to missional prayer. Through these pages you will be inspired to deploy the power of prayer in battle that has eternal consequences for the realisation of the Great Commission. Read this book prayerfully and meditatively - and be sure to have a Bible nearby.
