Who will defend you today in the trials that you face? Discover what it means to be an advocate or a spiritual defense attorney as you stand in the gap for others. Look at Job - who was probably the earth's earliest known advocate. Praise God and claim the key to victory as He uses your trials for His ultimate glory! Prayer must be the first response to a problem instead of the last resort. Recognize the power of prayer as you face the accuser of the brethren and examine four of his favorite tactics that he uses against Christians. While God forges His finest tools in the fire of adversity, know that your Divine Defender clearly carries some remarkable attributes as He pleads your case in the highest court-to the Supreme Judge.

•Learn how to develop credentials by enduring trials •Understand that every intercessor is a spiritual attorney •Learn the nature of heaven's courtroom •Discover Satan's favorite tactics •See the importance of preparing the cases that you will plead for others •Develop ways to prevail in court and win favorable decisions •Recognize the difference between purpose-driven prayer and problem-centered prayer
