by D. Edmond Hiebert presents the nature and privilege of working with God through intercessory prayer. Modern Christians have long been encouraged by reminders and testimonies that prayer works. But have modern believers forgotten the work of praying? Have we lost an awareness of our responsibility to “stand in the gap” and the Lords sobering commands regarding prayer? Hiebert discusses the costly consequences of ignoring and neglecting prayer and brings us back to the essential exercise, fruitful ministry, and striking simplicity of intercessory prayer.
