Graham Cooke: Approaching The Heart Of Prophecy

Module four is titled “Workshop: Moving From Prayer To Prophecy.” In this module Cooke leads his readers through a process to show how we can take a prayer that we might pray for a person and turn it into a prophetic word. This may be the most controversial part of the book; however, this practice is not entered into lightly or without spiritual preparation and it may help people think about how they might begin to prepare themselves to minister to people prophetically.

One thing that is found in Approaching The Heart Of Prophecy that was not found in Developing Your Prophetic Gifting is the inclusion of a study guide. Each module in the book concludes with a study guide that includes reflections, exercises and assignments.

This book would be most helpful to people who are trying to understand, or step out in, the gift of prophecy. It would also be of great benefit to leaders who would like to pastor and encourage prophetic people. While you may not agree with everything Cooke writes I think that he has provided some very good information. I look forward to the forthcoming volumes in the series.
