Prayer Warriors, A Story of Power
Author: Celeste Perrino Walker, Reviewer: Alice Ray
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the unseen world of heaven and the angels, both good and evil, when you pray? If so, you’ll enjoy reading Celeste Perrino Walker’s trilogy: Prayer Warriors, Guardians, and Prayer Warriors: The Final Chapter.
“Her silver hair wrapped neatly in a bun, her gnarled hands clasped tightly in prayer, the old woman’s lips moved soundlessly until she felt the warmth of the sun begin to shine through the window. ‘Glory to God in the highest and peace to His people on earth!’ the old woman shouted with abandon. ‘Hallelujah!’ she cried, lifting her crippled hands up and clapping them together with joy, heedless of the fiery pain in her joints.
“Around the old woman, scores of angels congregated. One, a recording angel, paused in his duties long enough to smile at the uncensured joy of the old woman. The rest, commissioned to bring the constant requests of the old woman to the throne of heaven, bustled back and forth, kept continually busy by her prayers that seemingly never ceased.”
An imaginative peek behind the veil that separates the visible world from the invisible allows us to see the vital role that prayer plays in the lives of both the pray-er and the prayed for. You’ll follow the lives of the varied characters in the story as they struggle with real-life issues, some of which may resonate with you and your struggles. You’ll come to understand perhaps just a bit better just how important it is for us to pray, both for our own problems and for those of others. The battle between good and evil is brought forcefully to light as you read of the way that the evil angels put into our minds thoughts of discouragement and doubt. Then you’ll remember that Jesus commissions His angels to come to our rescue literally, emotionally, and spiritually.
You’ll find this book and its two companions in the church library, where a host of other excellent books are just waiting for you to come check them out and immerse yourself in a good read.
