Book Review : Beyond the veil
Beyond the veil by Alice Smith (Regal Books, 1998), deals with intercessory prayer and explains why not all prayer for needs is actually intercession. Intercession is a powerful weapon to use against the enemy. Alice Smith clarifies the gift, the role and the office of intercession. She uses the Old Testament priesthood and the model of the tabernacle to explain the ministry of the intercessor. Smith also describes the different kind of intercessors in the body of Christ and the different prayer needs they fulfill. She teaches the different “triggers” that God uses to prompt intercessors to pray. Smith speaks about the necessity of living a godly life and the need to grow more intimate with God in this ministry.
