“Intercessors Arise” by Debbie Przybylski, NavPress

INTERCESSORS ARISEBe Still

Debbie Przybylski’s book, “Intercessors Arise” to me was twofold. Not only did she tell us the many ways we can improve our prayer life but she also gave us an excellent insight into being a missionary. I enjoyed the things she relayed to us that happened to her while traveling on this ship that made the Guiness World Records in 2007 as being the oldest floating passenger ship in the world, built in 1914. Her journey on this ship required much prayer not only individually but corporately. I guess one of my favorite things she relayed was how she told about her Bible being worn out and praying for a new one which someone handed to her the very next day. Debra tells us many ways we can improve our prayer life in this book and through her Personal Application capsules at the end of the chapters she helps us to practice these methods. This is not a book you can just sit down and read. This is study material. She has also incorporated excerpt material from some very well known men and women of God such as Henry and Richard Blackaby from “Experiencing God” and E.M. Bounds from “E.M. Bounds on Prayer”. A person could actually take quite a few months working through this material if the Personal Application capsules are thoroughly followed. This is also excellent group study material. Prayer is something that many books have made very complex and also guilt ridden in my opinion. This book helps us to understand that it’s about our relationship with God and not always what He can do for us but just “soaking” in His presence and actually waiting to hear from Him. I would recommend this to any church group for study as well as personal study. The chapters are not long but each one is packed with much to be meditated upon. Whether you have been praying for a long time or you are new to it you will find this helpful and encouraging.
