Praying With Eyes Wide Open

Your place of prayer can be a place of effective ministry. More than talking to God, prayer is partnership with God in which you can see the hand of God at work and partner in His handiwork. Such spiritual discernment is the basis for effective prayer whether you are praying for an individual, a community, or even a nation.

The Watchman in the Bible is a secular vocation with spiritual implications. As a spiritual watchman, we are to be alert to the prayer assignments God gives us and Vigilant in praying through. Appealing to the roles of the watchmen in the Bible, Mark Copeland challenges us to be:

  • Watchmen in the garden who protect human lives from harm.
  • Watchmen in the trenches who topple enemy footholds and strongholds.
  • Watchmen on the wall who intercede for others to find their destiny in God

The prayer principles contained in this book can help you discover renewed confidence and authority in your calling as a prayer watchman.
