Prayer Shield: How to Intercede for Pastors, Christian Leaders and Others on the Spiritual Frontlines


Regal 1992

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Right now, someone you know desperately needs your prayers. It’s the person out on the front line, leading God’s army into the world to proclaim his good news. Pastors, teachers, and all types of leaders are under severe attack from the enemy. And they’re depending on the prayers from those who care to help see them through.

The enemy knows where your leaders are vulnerable, and he strikes at their weakest points. But the greater power is on your side. Through intercessory prayer you can reinforce your leaders with God’s strength and protection.

If intercessory prayer is missing, the full extent of God’s power is often stifled in the lives and ministries of leaders. They can’t do it alone. Someone must “pray the price.” Prayer Shield is a field manual to help you become that person—to help you step into the gap and intercede for your pastor or leader. It will show you if you have been called to intercessory prayer and provide step-by-step instructions on how to do it. You will learn:

  • Who is and isn’t an intercessor
  • Why leaders often don’t pray enough
  • How to recruit prayer partners
  • The three types of personal intercessors

If you’re called to be an intercessor, Prayer Shield will show you how to enter the battle confidently and carefully, helping to protect those who are under the strongest attack from the enemy; our spiritual leaders. Your prayers can make the difference.

Praise for the Print Edition

Prayer Shield is the most inspirational book I have ever read on the subject of intercession.

—Suzette Hattingh, founder, Voice in the City

In Prayer Shield, Peter Wagner opens a whole new area of prayer concern. As I read this book, I wondered how we had missed this crucial area. It’s so obvious that those who bear the brunt of ministry need spiritual support. But oh, how to find it!

Walter Wink, professor, Auburn Theological Seminary

I want to give this book to every member of my church.

Rick Warren, pastor, Saddleback Valley Community Church, Mission Viejo, CA
