Prayer. We all know it should be a bigger part of our life. But few feel that have mastered prayer (if that is possible) and all of us feel we could benefit from clear, practical guidance about how to pray with more power, more passion—and just to pray more!
To help everyone from beginner to seasoned intercessor, Becoming a Prayer Warrior provides a complete guide to the essentials of powerful prayer. From the basics to inspiring stories of world-changing prayer, Elizabeth Alves guides you in a fresh look at the incredible mystery of prayer and the benefits that prayer can bring.
Move beyond the idea of prayer as a ritual or duty and learn how to truly communicate with God and experience His power and joy as never before.

A branch of the ministry that is especially dear to Elizabeth’s heart is the President’s P.I.T. Crew, a national prayer ministry established to support America’s president. Dr. Alves writes a weekly prayer communiqué for this purpose.

Ordained a minister in 1979, this pioneer has traveled to forty plus nations. Elizabeth and Floyd have been married for over fifty years, and he is still her cast-iron hero. Together they have accomplished great exploits for God. Yes, they have reached the nations, but their greatest Kingdom contribution is witnessed in the lives of their four daughters and seventeen grandchildren.
The Alves make their home in Texas where they are active members of a local church. Though Floyd is now semi-retired, Elizabeth is getting ready to re-fire. Her latest work will surely be her greatest. The best is yet to come!
