JoeyPinkney.com Exclusive Interview
5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
Reverend Dr. Eric Lambert, Jr., author of Ingredients for Prayer
(Bethel Deliverance International)
In his latest book, Ingredients for Prayer: A Practical Approach for Maximizing Your Time with God, Rev. Lambert, pastor of Bethel Deliverance International Church north of Philadelphia, details what he believes is the true purpose of prayer in contrast to the “give me syndrome” of prayer that so many with financial woes seem to have.
By using â€œThe Lordâ€™s Prayerâ€ as a framework, he examines pieces of this prayer model to show ways to connect with God, like understanding the mind and will of God and becoming dependent upon and receiving the peace of God.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Ingredients for Prayer?
Reverend Dr. Eric Lambert, Jr.: I have always felt the need to write a book about prayer. I thought that prayer was misused in the modern generation, so I wanted Christians to get new ideas regarding prayer.
JP: What sets Ingredients for Prayer apart from other books in its genre?
EL: I wrote “Ingredients for Prayer” in the same down-to-earth format as my other writings. I want people to confront prayer as the result of their relationship with God and not to see the Lord as the genie in the lamp.
JP: As an author and pastor, what are the keys to your success that lead to Ingredients for Prayer getting out to the public?
EL: I rely on my ministry media department. I enjoy working with other professionals to take my ministry into areas that I would not otherwise think to engage.
JP: As an author and pastor, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Ingredients for Prayer?
EL: When I write, I like to brainstorm for a few weeks. Then I will write a rough draft. This process usually takes a few weeks or in some cases as much as a month. Ingredients for Prayer took every bit of three months to complete.
JP: What’s next for Eric Lambert?
EL: My next book is entitled The Christian and the Culture. I hope to have it ready by early 2010. This book will challenge the Christian to seriously consider Romans 12:1,2. I expect the title to have three volumes in all.
