Fervent

About:

You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted.

 

So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.

My thoughts:

Out of all the books I have read from the War Room resources this is by far my favorite.

I had done a study by Priscilla but never read anything by her. I love her tone as she writes. It’s so real you feel like you are sitting in the room with her.

Each chapter starts with why the enemy would want to steal something from you, like your passion, your purity, your focus. It makes so much sense. He knows what he is doing and knows what to target on you.

In the back of the book are cards, on them you can write a prayer from each chapter and pull it out and put it somewhere you will see it and prayer over it. I have done this and put them on my vanity so while I am getting ready in the morning I can pray over these things.

I can not recommend this book enough. If you want to get to the heart of your prayer life this is a must read. It is for women, but honestly, the principles given here can be applied to men’s lives as well.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, Books-A-Million or your favorite retailer.

the battle plan

About:

Inspired by the Kendrick Brothers’ new movie, War Room, this exciting new resource from the #1 best-selling author team behind The Love Dare and The Resolution for Men is designed to help anyone learn how to become a powerful person of prayer. The Battle Plan for Prayer begins with prayer’s core purpose, its biblical design, and its impact throughout history. Readers will be guided scripturally through the fundamentals of how effective prayer works, inspired towards a closer, more intimate relationship with God, and shown how to develop specific prayer strategies for each area of life. Prayer can accomplish what a willing God can accomplish. It should be your first plan of attack in all of life’s battles, not your last resort. If you want to experience the joy of mightily answered prayer, then it’s time to engage with God at another level.

My thoughts:

This is another resource to go along with the War Room. This one is for any adult, man or woman.

The book starts out basic and gradually moves into more specific prayers.

This book should be read over a thirty-five day period, just read one short chapter a day then apply what you have learned in prayer immediately and continue building on those truths as you move throughout the book.

I would recommend this book for anyone who is new in the faith, who needs guidance because they find themselves easily distracted in prayer, or anyone who has grown lukewarm in their faith or prayer life. This is a wake-up call to the need for prayer.

God is really showing me as I read through all of the War Room books the power of prayer and that we can’t give up, even when we don’t see anything changing, we must be persistent and this book will guide you in doing that.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, Books-A-Million or your favorite retailer. (This book releases Sept. 1st)
