The Author touches on a lot of valid truths. And I am in agreement with the fact that we (who are redeemed by the blood of Jesus through faith), have responsibilities, assigned by God, in the spirit realm. However, there are gray areas and lines that clearly leads you to "Works and Exchanges", and you really have to beware of when you are being guided to performing "Works", because Grace from God is a free, unmerited gift and being Justified by Faith has nothing, any longer to do with "Works"... ...more
This book (and CDs) was highly recommended by a source I trust, therefore it’s all the more disappointing. And a disappointment it is.

The title suggests the problem. Henderson has some helpful insights into prayer, but he presents it as a “secret” formula of “can’t” and “always” and “actually means” which runs contrary to the plain Biblical representation of God as a loving approachable father. (Applying the word “counsel” as if it means “council” also undercuts his exegesis.)

I find this a fascinating subject.

I have been hearing about this subject lately. I think Robert Henderson did a good job of explaining what it is and how it works. He uses scripture to prove his point of view, not just expecting his readers to blindly believe him. I liked that. I think it has a lot of meat. I will re-read this book the concept is new for me and I hurried through to get the idea,now I need to slowly consider this subject.

This book summarizes and expands on spiritual proceedings the Lord has been teaching me over many years. There is much to learn from this study. At some points I was prayerfully hesitant about some uses of Scripture where the original Greek or Hebrew could have several meanings.

I use to think that it was better if I prayed harder and/or longer for God to hear me. However based on this book, God's throne is set up as a courtroom and Jesus is there as our mediator speaking on our behalf. I now have a different view of how I personally pray.

This book stretched my thinking but made sense to my legal mind. Filled with scripture.

This book explains many of the otherwise confusing scenes we see and statements we read in the Bible. God operates by standards and protocols he established, which from our human perspective we’d call a legal-judicial system. The author uses human terminology and understanding to describe an overlooked aspect of our relationship with God, as well as the rights and responsibilities we have as a result of that relationship. It’s time we begin viewing our interaction with the spiritual realm from a ...more

I choose this rating because is an excellent piece of information most of us Christians will need to avoid causality in spiritual warfare and get get answers to our prayers. More grace to you Robert.

Opening up the way forward.

I have heard a lot about the Courts of Heaven but was advised that the book is by Robe Henderson would give some clarity on this subject, they were right. This book explains in easy to follow stages with no duming down the workings and processes of establishing GOD's order on earth as it is in Heaven. Scripture based as is the only way Robert takes you through the reasons and then the process that will give your prayer life a new edge because it is following the ways

I REALLY dislike this book. I met up with a few other leaders and we discussed the book. We each were assigned a chapter to read. We were supposed to summarize it and present it to one another. One thing we all agreed was that the book was very confusing, the author kept jumping around, most things did not make sense, even though he had evidence from the Bible it was VERY LITTLE evidence. I DO NOT recommend this book. Yes there are a few things the author is right about but most of it just doesn ...more

Have you been praying for months or even years only to have your words hit the ceiling and bounce back - even though your past experience has been prayers answered and quickly?? This might be the book for you. Win your case against your adversary in the courts of God and take back your Kingdom Inheritance.

Hopefully I have gained new strategies for prayer. If not I have at least gained more understanding in various aspects of how the legal system of heaven operates. I would love to hear an actual lawyer praying after reading this book.

Must read for any believer in God

This is a needed tool for every believer. We have to understand that a verdict must be given in the courts of heaven before victory can be achieved in any battle.

Robert was given a revelation of how satan can be holding a legal for our prayers not being answers. This is a must-read for anyone who needs to take back control of their prayer life and see the answers that they have been waiting for.

Great book

I learned a lot, God is doing a new thing in our time that is actually not a new thing, we have just lost the knowledge to these truths.

Good revelation

It teaches us how to pray effectively and what needs to be done to win the battle.
Book however was written in a very repetitive manner. Can be more concise.

An amazing truth that could revolutionize intercession in the Church and change the world forever.

This is the book I've been waiting and praying for years for. It is the most technical and accurate treatment about how the Church should do business in the spirit realm. If you are frustrated and tired of the results youv'e been getting in prayer, GET THIS BOOK. I have been doing what Henderson teaches in this book and getting the results he says we should be getting.

Will not recommend any Christian to read this book - most topics are not Bible based for this time of Grace.
