James Goll released a word covering what he calls, “The 12 Sounds of Prayer.” Goll explains how every one of us has a part to play in God’s orchestra of prayer and what that means. His list of twelve sounds includes prayers of intercession, prayers of “command,” prayers that “thwart the enemy,” and more.
