This book is about focused prayer and intercession that sets captives free from any type of bondage life have wrought. This book lets you know that we have a spiritual enemy to fight with real spiritual weapons that God has give us which are not of this world. The spiritual weapon is the Word of God. It supernatural.

• What inspired you to write this book?
I was inspired by my love to pray. My first book on Prayer Stations were individual prayer stations that you could go to and pray, they had focal points the concerned humanity. There are 12 of them; Praise and Worship, Family, Children, Finance, Healing, Binding Satan, Leadership, Unity, Bondage, Addiction and Salvation.
I needed something consistent to prayer daily in conjunction with these stations. So I began to write prayers for the individual prayer stations.
It took me 2 years to get the prayers to where I felt comfortable praying them and the editing had stopped, and to a place where they would benefit others. Then I began to experience greater success in my praying, I believe it was because of consistency in praying and petitioning God.
First and foremost, the prayers began to change me, healing, my finances, my relationships and I knew this prayer was bigger than me. The universe needed theses prayers to release a blessing on themselves and their loved ones.
• Who are the primary readers of your book?
Christian leaders, prayer groups, individual of prayer who want to move into a deeper relationship with God. This book is for anyone, it is easy reading and all bible based. (When we read the bible - God talks to us, when we pray - we talk to God.) It is all about relationship with God – He made us and not we ourselves. You want the thing that you made to reverence you, right?
• How long did it take to write it?
Over 2 years, I started just praying the prayers my self for about 24 months, they were twice as long as the final version. When I realized the book was for others, i begin to write the chapters leading up to the prayer. And when the book was in print, my daughter had a sudden emergency procedure; an unruptured aneurysm and I pulled the book to include her success story. I was tried by the book. I stood firm on what I believed about who God says he is. How can I tell you that God can, and have not been tested? He worked a miracle for my family.
• How did you come up with the title?
I was inspired in my prayer closet with this title.
• Why did you choose this cover?
The word of God is the sword of the Holy Spirit (I ask my publisher for a simple cover with a sword. It was love at first sight.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
We pray the word of God, Gods word is His will, making sure I had the appropriate scriptures to back up my praying. God honors his Word above all his names Psalm 138:2, "I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth; for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name." (KJV)
There are so many versions of the bible out there and most interpret differently. I am a firm believer in the King James Version of the Bible and promote it. Mostly everything written in my book is based on the KJV.
• Did you do research for your book?
Some research mostly on scriptures, books mentioned under bibliography and having Doctor of THD, I have many books I have read, some cases I just know from years of studying and notes.
• Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I have learned more deeply that God is a compassionate Father. We are hard on ourselves and others, but God goes soft on us. God is love and he sees the end from the beginning, He knows our outcome, He see the big picture, He know we are going to change at a certain cross roads in our lives and he is long suffering and waits for the change to come.
But we have to go through process in time to get there. We will get there. I have learned to patient and wait on God. Prayer is not answered in 20 seconds, but in due time, which is Gods timing. He many not come when you want Him, but he is always on time. I have learned to wait on the Lord and be of good courage and he will strength your heart. Wait, I say on the Lord.
• What do you want to say to your readers?
JOY, Jesus-Others-Yourselves. Do you want change: This is the formular to change and good success. "Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and will thy soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22:37-40)
God is concerned about how well we love one another, how we treat one another. He is concerned about man made in his image. If we keep theses two commands, we have kept the whole law. Beloved, let us love one another and have JOY!
I would like to say that love covers a multitude of sins. When nothing else could help love lifted me. I have seen so many being lifted out of depression through genuine love, since I wrote this prayer. Amazing.
