The Accidental Intercessor

     My friend, Melinda Fish, has just written a new book called The Accidental Intercessor.  She sent me an advance copy to read and also to proof read for typos, etc.  I was honored to be asked!
     I finished the book this morning and have to say it is one of the best books I've read recently.  I loved it because it changed my perspective on the meaning of being an intercessor--one who stands in the gap; to bridge a gap--by helping me to see that just by living, we are intercessors.  So often we think of intercession only in the terms of prayer, but have you considered that wherever we go as Christians we bring Jesus into daily situations because He lives in us, and consequently the world is changed by our lives?
      I think she said the book will be available in June as an E-book before it actually goes to print.  I encourage you to get a copy.  It will help you see, through stories and examples of people whose lives appeared to be insignificant but who actually had a profound effect on those around them, that your life  has meaning and purpose right where you are just because you are you.
      I will post a link to where you can order it when it becomes available.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It's the old what goes around comes around routine.
