In our first stages of prayer we must overcome the enemy's primitive deceptions. Satan wants us to believe that prayer is boring and difficult. When the Lord proves to us that it is exciting and simple we move on to new ground. But then the enemy tries to deceive us into believing that our prayers are ineffective and that we are unworthy. When we learn that they are precise weapons and that we are utterly dependant on Him for our worth, our opponent must try new things to trip us up. He wants us to smack into impenetrable barriers time and time again, which cause us to become discouraged as we are trapped by our lack of understanding. He wants us to sway back and forth near the punch bowl as the hour grows late and become content, thinking that we are truly dancing. Or he is happy when we venture out onto the floor alone, completely helpless and pitifully left to our own inadequate resources. This book introduces us to the sheer joy of the dance, of hearing His voice request our presence to dance in partnership with Him through prayer. You will be delighted to see into private prayer journals of the author that illustrate each principle.
