With the rise of racism, murder, immorality, drug abuse and sex in today’s society, author Barbara Holmes sees that the time for the people of God to arise and open their mouths is now. She marks her entry into the publishing scene with the release of “Arise to Praying God’s Word” (published by Xlibris), a book that talks about standing up for the things of God.

“Arise to Praying God’s Word” highlights the notion of giving God the permission he needs to be utilized to the fullest. The purpose of the book is to tell all believers to speak God’s word in prayer and take authority on earth to defeat the temptations of the devil.

An excerpt from the book reads:
Did you know that there are some prayer warriors who do not know how to pray? This is what the devil likes, he wants to close the mouths of the people of prayer. To be an effective prayer warrior, scriptures need to be used in prayer. One of the reasons the world is in the condition it’s in is not putting confidence and trust in the scriptures. Did you know it takes Christian intercessors to open the door to the will of God?

“I believe because of what is happening in our country we need people who go into supplication and intercession,” the author states. “Effective prayers must be done according to the principles of faith in the word of God.”
