Take a moment to look around your community - the parks, the malls, the key points of interest. Look at the downtown, the uptown, the back alleys and across the tracks. What are the institutions that dominate the life of your city? Do they glorify God? Or is your city infiltrated by pockets of idolatry and corruption?
You can bring light to the darkest parts of your community by breaking down the enemy's strongholds through prayer. Finding solid information will ensure that your prayer is on-target and much more effective. Breaking Strongholds in Your City shows you how to identify the enemy's territory in your area, and provides practical steps on how to pray against these dark strongholds - making it perfect for pastors, church leaders and intercessors on every level.
Whether you are being called to frontline warfare or behind-the-scenes prayer support, discover how you can target your prayers to God's glory in your neighborhood.

Seldom have I read a book that has taught me more about strategic prayer. Never have I read a book that gave me so much hope for my city. The subject of spiritual mapping is new to me. What I don't understand, I will ponder. What I do understand I will act upon.
John C. Maxwell, Pastor, Skyline Wesleyan Church, San Diego, CA
Spiritual mapping is a controversial subject, but it is worthy of serious biblical reflection and prayerful discernment. Believers seeking to evangelize effectively should be fully prepared for the spiritual battle.
