With those words, respected leader, speaker, and author John Maxwell saw his agenda replaced by God's agenda. The stranger who felt God's calling to pray for this pastor fulfilled a need in Maxwell that he didn't even kn

Even though this is an older book, I decided to pick it up because the church I am currently serving at is starting to look at launching a multi-faceted prayer ministry. Maxwell gives some really great tips for designing and implementing a prayer ministry... though it does seem catered towards a larger church setting. All in all, I appreciated the various insights on creating a prayer ministry... and Bill Bright's chapter on fasting was interesting to read as well.

This book did two things for me. 1) It introduced me to John Maxwell. I became an avid reader of his materials after I read this book. 2) The book helped me understand how important prayer is in terms I could understand.

A great introduction to John Maxwell and prayer.

John Maxwell hits the nail on the head once again. Partners in Prayer explains why pastors and church leaders need people partnering with them in prayer and how to go about setting up a prayer partner ministry. Good stuff! Wish I had done this in my previous churches! I believe I would have been a better pastor/preacher/teacher/leader, and the Holy Spirit would have been able to do more than it did during my time there. It's an older book, so you have to ignore or "translate" the inclusive langu ...more

In this book, Maxwell gives basic, helpful information about prayer. He discusses the potential of prayer, how to pray, what to pray, and finally zeroes in on how to pray specifically for your church and pastor. This is a relatively short book, so it doesn't go into as much detail as some might wish, but it is especially helpful if you are looking to start a prayer ministry to help strengthen your pastor and church.

I read this book many years ago and felt the pull to read it again, this time with my husband. Such an eye-opening book on the power of prayer, especially in lifting up pastors and growing churches. The statistics listed in the book in regards to what pastors struggle with are jaw-dropping.

John Maxwell teaches some of the best principles in Leadership that I have heard. This book on prayer is also very good and I recommend it. He lays out some excellent plans to enrich your prayer life and relationship with God and His church.

kesimpulan akhir yang masih tetap melekat sewaktu membaca buku inilah :

"mitra terbaik dalam doa adalah hanya pasangan kita"

walaupun tidak menutup kemungkinan untuk memiliki mitra lainnya.

** ini hanya sekelumit dari sebagian besar yang bisa didapatkan dari buku ini
