Bridal Intercession: Authority in Prayer Through Intimacy with Jesus
Bridal Intercession: Authority in Prayer Through Intimacy with Jesus is a book for such a time as this, approaching the topic of intercessory prayer from the perspective of the Church's place as the Bride of Christ. Through exploring the biblical paradigm of God's relationship as the husband of His people, Gary Wiens draws his readers into an understanding of intimacy with Jesus as the foundation of effective prayer. Rather than seeing prayer as an issue-oriented, anxiety-based exercise producing fatigue, Gary presents prayer as the joyful and romantic communion between the Lover and His beloved. The approach is thoroughly biblical, utilizing the scriptural stories of God's relationship with His people as the foundation for the contemporary call to prayer. Readers will find themselves encouraged in intercession, and eager to encounter this lovely Lord who is their Bridegroom.
