About the author:
Jesse P. Dagnino (the elder) the author of these scriptures and The Book of Jacob is a self described Gnostic who like Gnostics before him believe devoutly in their mission for GOD and is considered a pneumatic spirit (inspirited one/aeon) which will be explained during the course of this book. The Book of Jacob, are scriptures written during the times of the end as expanded from our Christian based beliefs and the Holy Gospels found in our current day Christian Bibles. The driving spiritual force of this author is that of Didymus Judas Thomas, the apostle and servant of Jesus Christ and was considered his most trusted and constant companion who was the keeper of Jesus’ records. These are true stories written for man and instructed by the HOLY SPIRIT of Truth. (John 14:15-end). This author has no theology education or any other type of professional study that relates to biblical research and religious antiquities of early man with belief to godhead or a god, theosophy is his guide and knowledge comes from the insight of the Father. My only goal for writing this book is because of the deep faith and love I have for the Holy Spirit and the Christ of God and faith without works is meaningless. These are the words given me as I believe are the Spirit of Truth and the logois of Jesus; Brother Jude called twin or Thomas means twin in Aramaic not to be confused with Judas Iscariot the faithful and known as the betrayer by ignorance of the early editors who destroyed the Gnostic writers and this truth is in The Gnostic Thomas found buried in the deserts of Nag Hammadi Egypt in 1949 and translated in 1972 along with the dead sea scrolls. Didymus is twin in Greek as is the Gnostic word which is prophet which means knowledge given by God or what is known as Mysticism or insight of God. Didymus Judas Thomas…Jude.

Power of Prayer
Intercessors Arise by Debbie Przybylski is a powerful book on the application of prayer not just on those around us but cities and nations. The dictionary defines an intercessor as "one who intercedes by prayer, petition in favor of another". After readying and applying the personal applications in this book to your life you will be an intercessor to many others and as mentioned before even nations. The power of prayer is real and with this book you will learn to use that power.
This book covers topics such as finding intimacy with th Lord, being still and waiting for the Lord, forgiveness, ad being intercessor in the world. I would recommend this book to any Christian that wants to strenthen their prayer lives and expand beyond just the self and family prayers. I personally found every personal application to be a deep and very spiritual enlightening experiences. Beware though it can get rough at times when you have to suck it up and face the truth about you. Debbie has provide us with a wonderful tool and that I am thankful for.

Some Good Nuggets
“Prayer is not an indifferent or a small thing. It is not a sweet, little privilege. It is a great prerogative, far-reaching in its effects. Failure to pray entails losses far beyond the person who neglects it. Prayer is not a mere episode of the Christian life. Rather, the whole of life is preparation for and the result of prayer.” –E.M. Bounds in E.M. Bounds on Prayer, as quoted on page 13 of Intercessors Arise.
I enjoyed hearing Ms. Przybylski’s stories from the mission field, serving in over 60 countries. I particularly enjoyed the stories she shared of meeting Corrie Ten Boom. As with any book, you have to separate the wheat from the chaff and there were a few things I disagreed with such as the translation used. I also disagreed with the examples of using “breath prayers.” “Pray a brief phrase to Jesus throughout the day that you can repeat in one breath” (19). I firmly believe we should pray without ceasing, but I disagree with using repetitive phrases in prayer (Matthew 6:7).
What I did appreciate in this book, however, were the vast and rich quotations. Some of these I plan to keep in my treasury. Some of my favorite authors such as E.M. Bounds, Henry Blackaby, and Elisabeth Elliot are quoted from. I was also as I studied the Scriptures in my own Bible quoted in the application section of this book. Although I didn’t agree with all of it, this book has some great nuggets of wisdom.

Intercessors, it is time to arise and shine
“Intercessors Arise” by Debbie Przybylski is, by far, the best book you will ever read on intercessory prayer. It will change the way you think about prayer and the way you approach God. A perfect book for a small group setting or individual study, “Intercessors Arise” will open up a whole new way to pray for yourself and others. You will learn the connection between faith and prayer and see personal examples of how prayers (your prayers) change the world.
Christians don’t often realize how powerful praying to our Heavenly Father really is. Przybylski teaches us that prayer is more than saying a few words and going on. Through the use of scripture and her own personal experiences, she demonstrates the very power we have to change the world around us as well as our circumstances. She shows us how to be ourselves and how to pray in the Father’s Will.
Pryzbylski’s book is meant to encourage people to pray by teaching them how. She doesn’t just plead with us to pray because she knows it’s power; she provides guidance, chapter by chapter, and let’s us know there are no formulas or magic words, just us having a meaningful conversation with God.
Each chapter ends with a personal application. It is important that you take the time to read it and do the exercises. If you do, you will grow in your prayer life and your spiritual life and you will come face to face with God. You will not just read this book once. It can and probably will be used over and over again.
Because I believe this book will change your life, I am going to give one copy to a reader who posts a comment on my blog. The winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, September 22, 2010.

"Intercessors Arise" is a fantastic read. I really learned how to get more out of my prayer time by connecting with the Word while praying. The depth to which we pray has a profound effect on the answers we receive from the Lord. Praying the Words of the Bible emphasizes one's faith while petitioning God for answers because we know we are in His divine will.

A Great Prayer Tool
This is a wonderful book to help inspire and encourage your prayer life! Debbie gives lots of examples of people and how prayer helped them. She also has Bible verses and examples of prayers that you can say. She ends each chapter with a personal application, where she gives you Bible passages to read, questions, challenges, and just ways to put the chapter into practice.
There’s probably not anyone who agrees 100 % with another person, so like all books, there’s some things I don’t necessarily agree with, but it’s still a wonderful tool to have.
There’s one passage about how we have to listen to God and really understand what He is saying. I couldn’t help but laugh because it was so funny. She tells of a translator interpreting for an American.
The American said, “What happened was so funny that it tickled me to death!” The translator asked him to repeat himself several times, and then hesitantly translated, “ It was so funny that I scratched myself until I died.”
I think this book is set up to be a chapter a week Bible study, and there’s even exercises that require multiple people, like a church class. This would still be great for an individual study. For me, I like it as a chapter every 2 to 3 days. That gives time to answer the questions honestly and really soak in the information. For review purposes, I read it a bit quicker than that this time.
There’s lots of great advice in Intercessors Arise. If you need a prayer boost, you would definitely benefit from this book. Every time I picked it up, I started singing, “Soldiers of Christ Arise.”

Debbie's book about intercession was refreshing to the spirit and wise beyond literary comprehension. Each page told of amazing missionary journeys and deep spiritual insight. I found so much peace reading through the pages and being drawn into the heart of God. It was a nice change of pace to see a book about prayer that isn't about getting something or having someone else become the person that you desire them to be. This book is simply about having a heart for the things that God desires. It is about meditating on His word and His work. There is an intimacy that God desires to have with us. He longs to have us not only come to Him for our needs, but also listen to Him as He shares His desire for the nations.
I love the line that says "if we know how to worry, we know how to meditate." We simply must train our minds away from fleshly pursuit to thinking of God's radical provision.
Allow yourself to be led chapter by chapter through exercises in letting go and learning to trust. I cannot recommend it enough.
"Intercession is not human beings prevailing on God, persuading Him to do something He does not want to do. it is exactly the other way around! Intercessory prayer is God finding someone on earth who will invite Him, in prayer, to do what He wants to do. He gives believers the joy and privilege of shaping the prayer in our own thoughts and words; but the more we practice prayer, the more artfully He will shape our thoughts until they are His, more and more clearly." -John Loren Sandford

Intercessors Arise, written by Debbie Przybylski is a compilation of concepts taught through the ministry of the same name, which was birthed in Debbie’s heart during her time serving as a missionary with Operation Mobilization and began in the aftermath of 9/11 as she encourages others to seek after God’s own heart and cultivate a life of confident intercessory prayer. I was deeply challenged not just to build and strengthen intercessory prayer in my own life, but also to spend more time in just stillness and quietness of heart before my Father.
Through much personal learning, growth and insight, the author shares truths about pursuing God’s own heart, increasing in faith, having a life of purity and character, treasuring and praying back to the Lord from Scriptures, the importance of forgiveness in a believer’s life, having a heart of compassion, the essentialness of waiting patiently and prayerfully for God to work, interceding for revival and other keys to effective and life-changing intercessory prayer. She gives further insight by including excerpts and quotations from various Godly authors and great Christians.
With the soul-searching application questions and prayer and the close of each chapter, this book would be excellent to be read during times of personal devotion following time in the Word and will also aid in implementing truths that you learn as you read through this book into your life moment-my-moment. This book is a wonderful presentation of truths for any believer desiring to use his or her life to impact the world for the furtherance of the Gospel.

A Mentor in Your Pocket
While Intercessors Arrive, the new book, by Debbie Przybylskim, happens to be just as relevant and practical for individual personal development as well. Far too many people overlook for importance and power of prayer, which is essentially our means of personal communication with God, our creator. Faith is one thing, but without a personal dialog with God, we cut off so many blessings and intercessions which could otherwise offer comfort and security in the pressures of society we all face. God is our best friend, and our advocate. prayer is the lifeline to this relationship.
Prayer is a powerful tool that should not be overlooked. The author intends this book to be a mentor manual for prayer. In otherwords its like having a mentor or an instruction manual right in your pocket, so that you can learn how to be a prayer super hero. As big a claim this seems to be, I believe this goal is achieved in theis book for those who actually take their time to read as well as meditate on its suggestions. The author is not promoting her own agenda or a program, but rather the power of God's word in the bible- and how our prayers can be based on biblical promises. For example the section, Przybylski's ideas are grounded with biblical verses and examples, not simply weak personal stories or anecdotes. The words of this book are substantiated by the bible itself, not merely by lame, heartwarming, feel-good types of stories which sadly, are found in so many self help and inspirational style books. This book provides ideas and instructions on how to harness the power of prayer, which for some of us, may not come so naturally. This is not simply a feel good book: it does not teach about entitlement or about wealth and prosperity. It is a character building book instead.
You need not be an expert on theology or a high profile religious preacher to enjoy this book. This book is intended for everyone, even for those who perhaps have never even read the bible. It is for anyone who has a genuine desire to seek the truth about what God and who seeks to have God's help. Near the end on page 191 a brief synopis of the gospel message of the bible is shared to ensure that each and every reader understands the purpose and importance of having a relationship with God. Perhaps you are not interested in saving the world, or changing the world. You may be overwhelmed with your own personal crisis and issues, that saving the world takes a back seat to your own worries- nevertheless, this is just the book for you. But maybe, perhaps, if just enough people in this world cared enoughed to try and straighten out even their own lives through prayer, then we would have resolved indirectly many of the social injustices and inequites via a reverse trickle effect- from the bottom on up. I recieved this book free of charge as a book reviewer for Navpress publishers. The reviews expressed are my own.

Debbie Przybylski's book, "Intercessors Arise" to me was twofold. Not only did she tell us the many ways we can improve our prayer life but she also gave us an excellent insight into being a missionary. I enjoyed the things she relayed to us that happened to her while traveling on this ship that made the Guiness World Records in 2007 as being the oldest floating passenger ship in the world, built in 1914. Her journey on this ship required much prayer not only individually but corporately.
I guess one of my favorite things she relayed was how she told about her Bible being worn out and praying for a new one which someone handed to her the very next day.
Debra tells us many ways we can improve our prayer life in this book and through her Personal Application capsules at the end of the chapters she helps us to practice these methods.
This is not a book you can just sit down and read. This is study material. She has also incorporated excerpt material from some very well known men and women of God such as Henry and Richard Blackaby from "Experiencing God" and E.M. Bounds from "E.M. Bounds on Prayer". A person could actually take quite a few months working through this material if the Personal Application capsules are thoroughly followed. This is also excellent group study material.
Prayer is something that many books have made very complex and also guilt ridden in my opinion. This book helps us to understand that it's about our relationship with God and not always what He can do for us but just "soaking" in His presence and actually waiting to hear from Him.
I would recommend this to any church group for study as well as personal study. The chapters are not long but each one is packed with much to be meditated upon. Whether you have been praying for a long time or you are new to it you will find this helpful and encouraging.

It's Not a Book
It's Not a Book
As I read Debbie Przybylski's latest book, Intercessors Arise (Navpress, 2008) my first reaction was not what I expected. A few chapters in, I was asking “Where is the fire? I'm interested in this subject. As a believer, I want a more dynamic prayer life. But this book is, well, uninteresting.” I've heard the anecdotal stories before, and felt I should pray more than I do. However, I already know this stuff. The book was missing the proverbial trigger. Debbie didn't pull the trigger on how to make the reality she described a part of my life.
Debbie is the founder of Intercessors Arise International, and has spent decades on the mission field with Operation Mobilization. She's an acclaimed writer, and mentor, teaching on the subject of prayer and intercession across the globe. So her experiences suggests that she must know about prayer. Yet I spent half the book asking where is the fire? Where do I find the kind of life she is describing?
I would like to pat myself on the back and say “And then lights went off . . . ” No, my final analysis of Debbie's book demands that I humble myself rather than disclose some grand revelation. Debbie's book will tell me the 5 points to a better prayer life. Intercession isn't a spectator sport that one can learn from the bleachers of Christian life. In depth intercession like Debbie describes doesn't follow a formula. It is learned on one's knees, discovered through utter dependence on God.
Intercessors Arise is a manual to be poured over slowly. I recommend taking 2 or 3 months to digest and apply the lessons. This book can be a wonderful resource for a group of friends who seek to improve their prayer lives. Intercessors Arise is not and cannot be formulaic, as are many modern Christian titles. Intercession is not a formula where I insert currency and like a gum ball machine, God turns the crank and rewards me. From her deep experience Debbie describes that intercession require a person's commitment to their God - a broken open, unfaltering, humble-and-willing-to-wait for an answer commitment which is too often absent in today's modern church.
My confession is that I didn't get much from her book the first time through because I was looking for a formula. My own attitude and shallow expectations were the roadblock. Intercessors Arise is not a book. Rather it is a tried and proven field manual that encourages Christ followers to pray big, dream big, and then depend on an equally Big God. In response, God often starts by creating brokenness and dependency, a humbling process that creates intercession from self focused prayers.
I recommend this book highly, and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
