2 Books On Prayer to Elevate Your Spiritual Life

Daniel Olukoya is a Nigerian pastor whose work is revolutionizing the way people pray. He has written dozens of books on the subject, but two are his seminal works.

Dr. Olukoya's book Prayer Rain is an amazing book on prayer. Many prayer books give advice about prayer with a lot of 'ought to' chapters. This is not that. Dr. Olukoya's book is a prayer manual, each page being filled with a powerful truth about prayer, then followed by anywhere from a dozen to three dozen specific prayers to pray about that area of life.

He writes, “To fulfill your destiny, there are two things you must do. You must pray to make power change from the hands of the enemy to the hands of the Holy Ghost. Additionally, you must seek the restoration of your destiny through aggressive prayer.”

Sometimes it is hard to come up with what to say in a prayer, this book is invaluable because you can pray the prayers in each chapter as Dr. Olukoya has written if you so choose. Simply amazing. The first person I shared it with was also blown away. You can read a book that talks about 'praying more' or you can take this book and speak the prayers out loud and let your life be changed.

He talks often about praying aggressively. E. M. Bounds spoke about praying with passion in the same way. You can learn more about E. M. Bounds at Cleveland's Old Stone Church.

Dr. Olukoya’s books are for anyone serious about their prayer life or wanting to move it to a new dimension.

For example, he suggest praying “prayer points” such as the following:

1) O Lord I desire breakthrough concerning…today (this week, this month, this year) in the name of Jesus.

2) Let the fire of God saturate my life, in the name of Jesus.

3) Let every area of my life become too hot for any evil to inhabit, in the name of Jesus.

4) You, evil growth in my life, be uprooted, in the name of Jesus.

5) I confess and declare that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, and sanctified by the blood of Jesus.

His book Prayer Passport is amazing, the pages are thin such as those found in a thinline Bible and it is close to 800 pages. As you read it and speak the prayers out loud your heart and spirit will identify with the words you are confessing. You will learn to declare, confess, decree and command your prayers with confidence and boldness.

Read these books, and get ready for a new dimension of prayer in your life.
