Prayer Shield: How to Intercede for Pastors and Christian Leaders
Right now, someone you know is in desperate need of your prayers. It’s the person out on the front line, leading God’s army into the world to proclaim His good news. Pastors, teachers, and all types of leaders are under severe attack from the enemy. And these leaders depend on the prayers of those who care—people like you—to help see them through.
The enemy knows where our leaders are vulnerable, and he strikes at their weakest points. But the greater power is on our side. Through intercessory prayer, you can reinforce your leaders with God’s strength and protection.
If we aren’t praying, though—if intercessory prayer is missing—the full extent of God’s power is often stifled in the lives and ministries of our leaders. They can’t do it alone. Someone must “pray the price.” Prayer Shield is a field manual to help you become that person, to help you step into the gap and intercede for your pastor or leader. This book will show you if you have been called to intercessory prayer and then provide step-by-step instructions for praying like never before. You will learn:
- The biblical basis for intercessory prayer
- Who is and who isn’t an intercessor
- Why leaders themselves often don’t pray enough
- How to recruit prayer partners
- The three types of personal intercessors
If you’re called to be an intercessor, Prayer Shield will show you how to enter the battle confidently and carefully, so you can help protect those under the strongest attack from the enemy: our spiritual leaders. Your prayers can make all the difference.
