Author Andy B. Nakagawa Releases 'Living in Victory'

Living in Victory
Enlightening book shows readers the life changing power of prayer and faith

ISHPEMING, MI — Author Andy B. Nakagawa has always believed that prayer is one of the most potent ways to uplift yourself from the darkness of the world. It is also one of the most powerful weapons you can have in the ever constant war against sin. This is because the devil is constantly bombarding humanity with words full of deceit and hatred. And if left unchecked, humanity would lose sight of its ultimate goal. God’s love.

Which is why the author has endeavored to write Living in Victory. This is a prayer and faith companion book based on Andy B. Nakagawa’s previous book The Road to Redemption (And Blessings). It contains prayers based on four subjects: spiritual warfare, blessings and identity, guidance and direction, and deliverance. It has a new essay on renewing the mind and an article about the author’s personal identity in Christ.

The book contains six chapters and each one tackles concepts on faith and the power of prayer. This book is an illuminating tome that shows the life changing power of prayer and faith. The author’s greatest wish is that the book will help the spiritual growth of his readers and show them how to finally live in victory.
